Top of Alpbachtal

Enjoy fantastic views

An absolute highlight awaits near the Hornalm, directly at the Hornbahn 2000 top station. 2,030 meters above sea level, the “Top of Alpbachtal” observation tower offers a unique 360° panoramic view in the middle of the Tyrolean mountains.

In addition, the modern interpretation of the parlor on the first floor invites you to take a short break. Through the large glass fronts, the view sweeps over the striking Alpbach peaks as if by magic.

An architectural masterpiece

In keeping with Alpbachtal tradition, the tower was built from wood and clad with around 25,000 handmade shingles. The “Top of Alpbachtal” was planned by the renowned architectural firm Snøhetta, based in Innsbruck.

Hans Hausberger from Alpbach is one of the shingle makers for the observation tower. This video provides an insight behind the scenes of this special craft.
