Good day, here in Alpirsbach is on 4 Oct. autumn market and 1 week later, the Farmer's Market in Schiltach. In Alpirsbach the guided tour of the monastery is possible every day, as every day a tour of the brewery museum. Concerts and theater are offered in the fall only in our county town of Freudenstadt. Here in Alpirsbach we have a cinema in the monastery (the Subiaco-cinema), where daily selected / good movies are offered. Im Kinzigtal many small towns can be visited (Schiltach, Wolfach, Haslach, Gengenbach, etc. / see also the brochure "sights in the Kinzigtal" that is printed in different languages). In addition, the open air museum "Vogt Farm" is about 30 km from Alpirsbach away and a ride on the Black Forest Railway from Hausach to Villingen a real experience. All this is also in the September / October very nice, especially if no longer so much traffic on the roads. After payment of the tourist tax, guests can easily travel for free by train and bus throughout the Black Forest. Alpirsbach also has a train station, which departs every hour a train to Offenburg and Freudenstadt.
