About place: Alpbach

The small city of Alpbach is at the distance of 40-minute drive from Innsbruck. The first records of Alpbach dates from 1150, but it was connected with a road only in 1926, though nearly for eight centuries Alpbach has developed quite by itself.

Thank to this there have survived many authentic chalet with sloped roofs. In summer the natives turn the windows, balconies and roofs of their houses in the real exhibition of flowers. These chalets look very beautiful against the background of Alpine moun-tains.

Every year Alpbach hosts «European Forum» where representatives of culture and science are assembled. In winter Alpbach becomes a skiing resort. It shares the skiing zone with several other resorts including Kitzbuhel.
