The Alpine settlement is on the southern edge of the city, to the north and northeast is the Josefiau settlement area , to the west is the landscape garden on both sides of Hellbrunner Allee and behind it the historic center of Morzg . To the south is the closed historical green space around Hellbrunn Palace and Hellbrunn Palace Park , which is largely preserved as a riparian forest near the Salzach river. The border to Josefiau is formed by Egger-Lienz-Gasse in the north and Robert-Stolz-Promenade in the northeast.
The alpine settlement owes its name to the Alpenstraße , an important arterial road that runs south from the city center towards Anif , Grödig , Berchtesgaden and Tauernautobahn , and which used to be part of the German Alpine Road . The city bus lines 3 and 8 as well as the Albus lines 25, 28 and regional bus lines operate on the Alpenstraße .
The district emerged from a provisional military camp built in the last two years of the Second World War , which was called the Alpine Camp . The first residential and commercial buildings were built here later. Reaching out from the first construction, the current Alpine settlement, which today is largely dedicated as an industrial area, grew in the wake of the great population growth of the city after the Second World War.

In addition, apartment blocks dominate . Also located in the Alpine village three dormitories, the gymnasium Alpine Road , the State Police Salzburg as well as the sheds of the Salzburg city bus.
