Winter hiking trails in Vorarlberg

Discover winter nature on the go

There is something extra special about finding peace while moving through winter landscapes. Countless winter hiking trails lead to scenic places.

Useful information for winter hikers

All of Vorarlberg’s regions are composed of a well-conceived and extensive network of uniformly signposted winter hiking trails. In many places, guided hikes are also offered.

Suggestions and tips can be found here. An interactive map that details the approx. 180 winter-hiking trails shows the location of both easy strolls through nature and more challenging tours. The maps provide route information regarding the length, approx. walking time and elevation gain, as well as info on attractions, mountain restaurants and refreshments en route. Trail photos are also featured.

      Description
