Innsbruck airport has by far the shortest transfer time to Alpbach, but both Munich and Salzburg airports are also easily accessible because of the good motorway connections.
Alpbach is around 45 minutes' journey from Innsbruck airport. The trip along the Inn valley motorway is a short one until the motorway exit at Brixlegg and Kramsach. The road then heads up past Reith bei Alpbach into the Alpbach valley.
Innsbruck has a wide selection of charter flights which mainly arrive on the weekend, as well as a good choice of scheduled flights which includes some of the low-cost carriers to destinations in the United Kingdom.
Salzburg Airport is under two hours away from Alpbach. There is a choice of routes: one uses the road through the "German corner" near the airport and then via Lofer and St Johann out to Wörgl and then back onto the Inn valley motorway. This can be a trickier journey in bad weather or heavy traffic and there is an alternate choice which is virtually motorway all the way via the German Autobahn to the junction with the Munich-Inn valley motorway north of Rosenheim.
Munich Airport is located around two hours away from Alpbach. The airport is situated to the north of the city, and the motorway network which bypasses Munich to the east and then heads down to Rosenheim, where it joins up with the motorway from Salzburg, and the border at Kufstein.
Brixlegg railway station down in the Inn valley is the closest to Alpbach and is on the direct line from Innsbruck, Salzburg and Munich. Buses run during the day through to early evening from the railway station on the thirty-minute journey, and taxis are also available.
Alpbach's hotel accommodation is clad in the traditional wood, a local regulation which has earned the resort the title of the prettiest village in Austria in the past.
