Fun in the snow
The ski areas start from the village centre and extend up to 2,200 m above sea level. There’s even a cross-border ski area: from Kleinwalsertal it’s easy to ski across to Oberstdorf in Germany. An attractive snowpark, optimally prepared winter hiking trails and cross-country ski routes will inspire you to make the most of the snow. Regional cuisine is available in the mountain huts and in the valley.

The yellows and whites of mountain wildflowers contrast with the greens of the meadows and pine trees and the deep blue of the sky. In summertime, holiday offers are as rich and varied as nature’s palette of colours during the Kleinwalsertaler Bergsommer. Hikers can explore the cross-border network between Austria and Germany. Mountain bikers, climbers and mountain runners will appreciate the countless routes and trails. Children can enjoy a mountain adventure programme, and culture enthusiasts will be delighted by the region’s diverse array of traditional events.

Palate pleasers
Regionalism and hospitality are top priorities in Kleinwalsertal. The  chefs in the valley prepare dishes with locally sourced ingredients. Often made from beef and venison, such specialities are characteristic of the valley. Some dishes are even prepared with hay from mountain huts. In summer, a culinary foray through this gourmet region takes place once a week and lasts several hours. Tastings are included.

Regain your rhythm
Activating, regenerating or balancing? An HRV (heart rate variability) measurement can provide a visualisation of the right stimulation to help promote your personal wellbeing. This special health check is offered exclusively in Kleinwalsertal in Vorarlberg. The subsequent analysis can provide recommendations for personalised exercise programmes. You can embark on a journey to better health along trails specifically created to promote fitness. In winter, cross-country ski trails fulfill the same purpose.

Family time
What a joy! “Burmi”, the Kleinwalsertal mascot, accompanies little guests on trails and slopes to all kinds of adventures. The weekly program offers a lot of variety, from excursions into the wilderness to first climbing experiences. In winter you can go skiing, cross-country skiing, winter hiking or tobogganing. Numerous hosts spoil their guests with family-friendly services. In hotels as well as in vacation apartments.
