Vibrant Alpen town Bludenz
Paved alleyways, arcades and the constant views of the nearby mountains: Bludenz is a place where people meet up to take a stroll, shop or attend an event. The Val Blu Resort Hotel is a marvellous place to swim and enjoy a sauna. A cable car takes visitors up to the top of the local mountain, the Muttersberg. And in winter there are plenty of ski areas close by.

The heartfelt Brandnertal
In the Brandnertal families can immerse themselves in nature, go off on exciting adventures and explore mysterious forests and lush meadows. Throughout the year the interactive and informative “Natursprünge” trail excites explorers of all ages. There are plenty of summer adventures to enjoy such as the forest high-ropes course, horseriding or a guided hike with huskies. Expeditions take you out into the wilderness and to special places like the Lake Lünersee, also accessible by cable car. There are also mountain bike trails and even an 18-hole golf course.
In winter you can hit the ski slopes, join a toboggan safari or go on an evening excursion or hike.
Warm-hearted hosts ensure an enjoyable and carefree holiday atmosphere throughout the year. Numerous restaurants and mountain and Alpine huts provide culinary enjoyment for gourmets.

Naturally! The Grosses Walsertal Biosphere Reserve
“Living and working in harmony with nature” is the motto of the Grosses Walsertal Biosphere Park. The sensitive mountain landscape has been under special protection since receiving its special status in 2000. Hikes take holidaymakers to pristine Alpine meadows, to the echo wall or into the depths of the Biosphere Park. Climbers will find plenty of challenges in the high mountains. And in winter visitors can hit the ski slopes in the manageable ski areas or go on a ski tour.
Visit the biosphä and gain an insight into the world of a biosphere park. Cheese is made here and visitors can observe the process or take part in a cheese-making course. The St. Gerold priory is the spiritual centre of the area and regularly hosts concerts. Every two years modern folk music, film, theatre and exhibitions can be enjoyed during the “Walserherbst”.

The Klostertal
The Klostertal valley is located between Alpenstadt Bludenz and the Arlberg. Forests and meadows line the ascending mountains, which are popular with hikers and ski tour enthusiasts. A spectacular via ferrata has been opened for practiced climbers: Rated C/D, the fixed-rope course of intermediate difficulty at Fallbachwand, Vorarlberg’s highest waterfall, takes climbers up to lofty heights. For more relaxing moments, check out Klostertal and the “Bärenland” world of play and games at Sonnenkopf.
In Winter the Sonnenkopf ski area is a great place for skiing, offering freeriders numerous opportunities for backcountry skiing in deep powder snow.
A gourmet gift box with specialities made on the mountain farms in the Klostertal can be taken home as a souvenir.
