Austria's Prettiest Village

Alpbach - the village of the thinkers - famous for its beautiful floral splendour

Alpbach is a place where nature and culture are coalescing. Old wooden houses tanned by the sun, people with character, a beautiful mountain world and the wonderful mountain air: Alpbach is a place of power. 

The combination of the unique architectural style, coupled with the enchanting floral decorations on the wooden balconies, has brought Alpbach several awards. Alpbach was chosen as the most beautiful village in Austria and an international jury named it the most beautiful flower village in Europe.

In summer the women of Alpbach decorate their balconies with colourful geraniums, in winter with evergreen mountain pines and fir cones.
