Bergwald
Ranked #1 of 46 Alpbach B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 February 2010

We first stayed with the lovely Katharina at Bergweld last year and loved it so much, we returned this year! What could be a better testimony to this wonderful guest house?
We hope to return to Bergwald each year for our ski holiday and are even considering a summer holiday, sometime!

Bergwald is very comfortable and clean and Katharina's attention to detail is beyond compare: from the little chocolates to the weather forecast printouts. She is the perfect hostess: warm and friendly and very helpful! She is a wealth of information on the local area and is always very happy to help.

Katharina's breakfasts are superb and are a good start to a big day on the slopes!

Last year we stayed in 2 of Bergwald's comfortable rooms and this year, we booked a little earlier so we could stay in the 5 bedroom apartment. What a pleasure! With 3 young children, it certainly ticked all of our boxes and all the basics and more were provided.

Our children have very fond memories of their time at Bergwald last year and remember Katharina as "the very kind and pretty lady". This year, we treated them to Katharina's father's horse and carriage ride through Alpbach - highly recommended!

Bergwald also has a variety of toboggans that one can borrow free of charge and our girls had great fun on them just a short walk up the road.

Bergwald has incredible views and although it is not in the centre of Alpbach village, this adds to it's charm as the only "noise" we encountered was the tinkling of the horses' bells and the distant church bells - bliss!

It is very conveniently located near the ski lifts - a 10/15 minute drive and Katharina has a warm room where you can leave your snowy boots to defrost and warm up before you use them again.

Do come prepared with snow chains as the road is fairly steep and can become quite icy.

What more can I say? We LOVE Bergwald and are it's biggest fans!

Wonderful Bed and Breakfast located outside of Alpbach. Very nice and homely welcome! Lovely, very clean, rustic rooms with a breathtaking view over the valley and the mountains! Excellent breakfast!
Highly recommended! We are looking forward to come back again!

This is our second visit to the Bergwald and once again it was really excellent. This time we travelled with our family - 3 children and it was just as we expected. The rooms are clean, spacious and warm, the breakfast is fabulous and if there was something special that we wanted, Katharina got it for us, the views are simply the best in Alpbach and value for money it is SO much better value than any of the incredibly expensive hotels that we have stayed at before. We would recomend this to any one - yes you either need a car or fit legs as it is 5 minutes drive from the village, but the views are worth the drive or walk and so is the welcome. We will definitely stay with Katharina again - she is so lovely and so is her house.

This is a really charming hotel, nesting in the hillside above Alpbach in the Austrian Tyrol. It is surrounded by breathtaking views and is a wonderful escape from the tourist crowd, just a short and lovely walk from the town centre. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the beds incredibly comfortable and breakfast is hearty and fresh. Just a few minutes away is the hidden family gem of Gasthof Roosmoss, serving delicious local food since the 11th century in a traditional atmosphere. Our hostess, Katharina Moser, was unfailingly helpful and kind and made our trip more like staying with a family friend than at a hotel. And for those of you who still need regular contact with the outside world, the free wireless internet connection is a huge and unexpected bonus! Would highly recommend Bergwald for a magical mountain escape for both winter and summer.

I saw the website and I liked it. I read Tripadvisor, and I liked what people said of the place. I got in touch with Katharina to see if I could stay there a few days. I had thousand of doubts about the place, but Katharina always reply me as quick as she could.
I really wanted to stay in that place, I got a good feeling of it and I was right. The house wasn´t good, it was just perfect, as beautiful as it looks in the website.
The room was clean, beautiful, nice, the view through the window was just unbelievable.
Katharina was so nice, she speaks english, german, french and italian. I met her at breakfast time, she had everything ready. Breakfast was full of nice things, yogurt, differents jams, nice selections of bread, eggs, some fruit, ham, cheese.... and of course, coffee or tea... Perfect breakfast to get strong for the whole day!!!!!
Buffet was nice, clean, and tasty but what really made me enjoy a lot was Katharina conversation, she always came to us, took a seat, and started asking us for the day before. Day after day conversations got longer, and this fact made our stay just perfect.
We really felt at home, and we left the place knowing that one day we will be back. I would love spending there a whole week.

thanks Katharina for those perfect days

Wonderful place to spend a vacation in a relaxing atmosphere, with a splendid view over an alpine valley. The manager, Ms. Katharina, is charming and always attentive to the needs and wishes of her guests. We strongly recommend this hotel.

Katharina is one of the most welcoming hostesses I have ever encountered. The breakfast was fresh and plentiful. The room and facilities were extremely clean. The Gasthaus is up on a hill with a gorgeous view of the village. Not good for a solo traveler without a car, but I would definitely recommend for a skiing holiday if you have your own wheels. The skiing nearby was excellent.
