The Habsburgs ruled the villages in Vorarlberg alternately from Tyrol and Further Austria. In 1801 Altach was separated from neighboring Götzis. From 1805 to 1814 Altach belonged to Bavaria, then to Austria again. Altach is part of the Austrian state Vorarlberg since its founding in 1861. From 1945 to 1955 the municipality was in the French occupation zone in Austria.
