Montafon: the probably most beautiful fitness park in the Alps
The Montafon promises ‘really’ good chances for active holidays – with its 17 prestigious 3,000 metre high mountains and the Piz Buin (3,312 m), the highest mountain in Vorarlberg, whose peak was reached by mountaineers for the first time 150 years ago.
‘Real mountains. Real experiences’ this is the motto for holidays in the Montafon. And figures confirm this claim: 1,400 kilometres of marked hiking paths, 180 kilometres of running and Nordic walking trails, 270 kilometres of bike, mountain bike and e-bike routes will lead outdoor sports enthusiasts to their personal summit. Two 9 hole golf courses and two natural swimming lakes are situated in the marvellous high-alpine valley between Bludenz and Silvretta-Bielerhöhe. The eight tourism resorts in the valley distinguish by their long-standing tradition in summer and winter tourism, based on a well-adapted infrastructure, real hospitality and the authentic Montafon cuisine.
The Montafon is located in the south-west of Austria, in the federal state of Vorarlberg next to the Swiss border. From Austria you will reach the Montafon via the Arlberg, from Germany via the Rhine valley motorway and from Switzerland via the motorway Zurich-Chur. From Munich you will reach the Montafon by car in about 2.5 hours, from Zurich in about 2 hours.
