Your gateway to skiing the Alpbachtal

Nestled along the Inn River in the picturesque Tyrol region of Austria, Munster is the idyllic alpine town you've been dreaming of. Whether you're looking to ski in the winter or hike in the summer, a Munster vacation rental puts the stunning Alpbachtal region right in your backyard. Rugged mountain peaks contrast with quaint chalets to form the picture-perfect image of alpine living, where you can enjoy some fine apres-ski in the shadow of medieval castles and soaring mountains. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better winter sports playground, so get out and enjoy that fresh mountain air.

The mountains are calling your name

Munster offers everything a winter sports enthusiast could want. Two prominent ski areas are easily reached from town, each with gondola cableways and numerous ski lifts. The region also features eight toboggan runs, guided snowshoe hikes, and public ice rinks where you can show off that double axel you've been practicing. The romantics in the bunch won’t want to pass up the horse-drawn sleigh rides. When the snow melts, the valley becomes a hiker’s paradise, with plenty of crystal clear mountain lakes and idyllic alpine meadows to explore. Be sure to bring your camera.

Towering peaks at every turn

With mountain vistas like this, it’s understandable if you never stop looking up. From nearly any Munster vacation rental, you'll have unbeatable views. For an up-close look, head to Lake Zireiner, the most photographed lake in the Tyrol region, which reflects the surrounding mountains and changes colors depending on the weather. A pair of picturesque castles graces the Inn River. Burg Lichtenwerth, dating back to the 12th century, offers a taste of medieval life, while the 19th-century Schloss Neumatzen (Lipperheide) houses regular art exhibitions that are worth exploring. Gondola rides are the perfect way to take it all in.

Don't forget the boots and mittens

Winter sports mean winter weather, and Munster has it. With low temperatures below freezing from December to March, you'll get plenty of the snow you need for perfect ski conditions and winter activities galore. A Munster vacation rental doesn't have to mean heavy coats and sweaters, though. While the snow lingers on the peaks year round, temperatures in the valley rise up to the 70s from June to August, making for perfect hiking weather (but be sure to pack an umbrella, because summer is also the rainy season).

Mountains, mountains, and more mountains

If you like mountains, you’ll love Munster. The flat lands of the verdant valleys radiating off the Inn River rise quickly through rolling alpine meadows full of wildflowers. The Alpbach stream forms the rocky Alpbachtal region, known for its soaring peaks and breathtaking scenery. Hidden among the crags are crystal clear mountain lakes, whose surfaces reflect the surrounding mountains and forests. No matter where you explore, you'll find all the fresh air and stunning vistas you need to truly disconnect from the stress of everyday life.
