We spent our holidays in Alpbach with our 10 month old boy and we had all the comforts we needed (especially for our little one!)! Brigitte is very welcoming and able to comply with your requests even before you make them! We literally felt like at home and the atmosphere she is able to create is very special. Very good... More

We booked this guesthouse after learning that Alpbach was officially the prettiest village in Austria, and we really fell on our feet here. This establishment sets the standard for all others. Spotlessly clean and well appointed, with the most charming owner you could expect to meet. Dressed in traditional costume when we arrived, she spoke good English, and was most... More

If you want personal attention, an authentic local experience and excellent value, Gitti will ensure it. This is my favourite place to stay in my travels around the world. (I am not interested in so called 5 star large luxury hotels insulated from the surrounding culture. I prefer more intimate accommodation with local flavour.) Gitti's welcome is warm and bubbling...

Haus Sonnwend is certainly THE place to stay in Alpbach. Bang in the centre of the most beautiful village in Austria, Gitti makes you so welcome. Her breakfasts are legendary and nothing is too much trouble for her and daughter Sophie. We will definitely be back.

All the ingredients to allow you to relax and enjoy your holiday. This is however, for real - unlike many claims made by the leisure industry... A superb host who remembers your name, what is important to you and pours a wonderful schnapps on arrival. Surroundings that are both traditional and up-to-date as they can be. Powerful wifi, organised and... More

Another wonderful week with Gitti at Sonnwend. Have stayed here many times and have always felt spoilt and looked after. The rooms are spotless, mainly large and comfortable. All on- suite. Some are set up for self catering, but with an amazing buffet breakfast choice including "speck mit ei", scrambled or various omelets. Gitti will happily book taxis or sort... More

We spent 9 wonderful days in the splendid Alpbach and Haus Sonnwend seemed the perfect place for us. Gitti, the owner and the soul of the house, makes you feel at home (or better... :)...) every step of the way. The place is very clean, the rooms are spacious and have lovely views of the mountains, the breakfast is wonderful,... More

If only other hotels looked after their guests like Gitti does. The genuine attentive and warm service throughout is fab, the rooms very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was relaxed and yummy. Our family including teenagers enjoyed our stay hugely.

The Sonnwend is easily the best place to stay while skiing or walking in Alpbach. Gitti's care and dedication to her guests is truly fantastic. We have stayed at the Sonnwend every year in our ski trips to Alpbach, in our latest trip we stayed in one of the Sonnwend apartments and it was superb. Very well equipped, spacious and... More

Sonnwend's greatest asset is owner/manager, Gitti, who combines efficiency and energy with warmth and friendliness - and a delightful sense of humour. She knows how to make guests feel comfortable and welcome and she does it to perfection. (Gitti speaks perfect English.) Her attention to detail ensures the rooms and apartments are practical and appealing. We spent a few days... More
