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

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.

      Description

      It is hard to imagine today that in the Stone Age hunters roamed the rearmost Kleinwalsertal, which even boasts a major find of stone implements and weaponry of the time. When in the late Middle Ages the Walser immigrated from the Tannberg to the Breitach valley, the Bärgunttal valley was presumedly their main access. Via Hochalp pass they were connected with the assizes in Tannberg up until 1563. It is…

      Description

      The Rhine valley stands out for two distinct features:  the vibrancy of a densely populated area and its rolling countryside with unspoilt and pristine recreational landscapes. Especially on winter days, when a thick blanket of fog covers the valley, you may feel tempted to escape high up to the mountains for the glittering white and the warming rays of sun. One such popular escape is Übersaxen, which derives its name…

      Description

      In long-bygone days, more precisely between 1928 and 1953, there used to be a railroad serving the Hinteres Montafon. This narrow-gauge railway operated between Tschagguns and Partenen during the construction of the Illwerke power plant. Today, the abandoned railway line is mostly used as a road by motorists and pedestrians, and as a village-to-village hiking trail in winter.
