Time for more recreation
Even Ernest Hemingway loved the charms of the two main villages in the heart of the Montafon and immortalised his recollections in his books. Today, modern cableways as well as attractive sport, cultural and recreational opportunities excite visitors during all seasons of the year. Staying active is not a problem – whether with family fun at Vorarlberg’s largest recreational park Aktivpark Montafon, bathing in the Montafon alpine swimming pool, guided tours on bike, hair-raising adventures at the forest rope park, sport activities in pure natural surroundings or strolling about the historic village centre. The villages are the central starting point for all ski and hiking regions of the valley and are easily reached year-round by rail or car.
