The peaks in Alpbachtal
Always worth a visit!
Do you know the three highest and most beautiful peaks in Alpbachtal? No? Then it’s high time we told you!
At 2,424 metres, Mt Großer Galtenberg is the highest mountain in Alpbachtal and a popular destination for hikers and mountaineers. The tour from Inner Alpbach via Zirmalm and Farmkehralm huts to the summit is around 16 kilometres long and takes approximately 8 hours. Once you’ve reached the top, you’ll be rewarded with a stunning view of the surrounding mountains, including the Kaiser, Karwendel, and Rofan mountain ranges. If the weather’s fine, you can even see all the way to Mt Grossglockner.
Mt Standkopf, which is also known as “Sagtaler Spitze” is a 2,241-metre-high mountain in the Kitzbühel Alps in Tyrol. In winter, as well as idyllic tranquillity and awe-inspiring natural landscapes, you can also ski down over slopes covered in deep powder snow. It’s no surprise that freestylers and ski tourers feel right at home here.
1,899-metre-high Mt Gratlspitze is the local mountain of Alpbach. If you want to climb to the summit, you’ll have to conquer more than 1,000 metres of elevation, meaning a certain level of fitness is required. Interestingly, silver was once mined on Mt Gratlspitze, which the abandoned mines and tunnels still remind us of today.
