Bartholomäberg in Vorarlberg

As with most hours of sunlight in the Montafon, Bartholomäberg is a paradise for those who love to soak up rays.

Bartholomäberg inspires with a culture spanning more than 4,000 years and a fascinating settlement history. The cradle of the Montafon also entices with a very valuable discovery, which is not hard to find – peace. There is a special route on many paths in Bartholomäberg. Your own path to recuperation and new, unimagined strength.

In summer, hike through lush, flowery meadows with traditional Maisäß [mountain hut] houses, with the breathtaking mountain tops of the Rätikon, Silvretta and Verwall always in sight. In winter, fasten up your snowshoes and take a new trail through the unspoilt nature. The range of snowshoe routes and winter hiking routes is unrivalled in the country. As with most hours of sunlight in the Montafon, Bartholomäberg is a paradise for those who love to soak up rays.

Until the last ray of sun

Electric bike tour on the sunny balcony of the Montafon

The valley sparkles in light green and the forests in pine-green with the mountain tops hovering above in the morning light. While e-biking you can enjoy the wonderful views and experience summer nature at eye level, with Michael for example. The mountain bike guide has been showing guests the beauty of his homeland by bike for ten years.

Michl, as everyone calls him, often travels with groups on the scenic and charming sunny balcony tour that passes through Bartholomäberg and the Silbertal. You can travel a part of this tour with the Kristbergbahn. “Scenically, this route is particularly appealing and you are always riding in the sun,” says Michael. During most hours of sunlight, Bartholomäberg is also the sunny balcony in the Montafon.

Did you know that...

a research team from the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main has been excavating in Bartholomäberg since 2000?

“During the Bronze Age, people clearly left their mark behind.”

Decode the history of the Montafon

As the oldest settlement in the valley, Bartholomäberg is a strong source of fascination. “The ‘treasures’ hidden in the ground are important historical sources that help reconstruct the life of earlier people and the Montafon natives,” says Dr Rüdiger Krause, professor at Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main. Together with his team he has been intensively examining traces since 2000.

Thanks to the excavations, we now know that mining took place 3,500 years ago, which is far longer than previously thought. Researchers were able to find evidence of mining from the Middle Bronze Age on Bartholomäberg at 1,450 metres thanks to C14 dating. It is therefore one of the oldest demonstrable mining areas in European mountains. According to Krause, the discovery “resembles a minor sensation since the experts previously considered Bronze Age mining in the mining area of the Montafon impossible.”
