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.

Winter hiking in the Montafon

Feel the peace of winter

If you’re looking for pure relaxation, you can also explore the snowy regions on foot without any difficulty; more than 290 kilometres of prepared winter hiking trails lead through romantic snow-draped landscapes.

On Bartholomäberg, the sunny balcony of the Montafon, you’ll find deep peace and quiet and hike on historic trails. Or you can find yourself an animal companion and go llama trekking on Kristberg. Things get mystical on a full-moon legend hike in the Silbertal valley. Whichever tour you choose, each hike is an experience.

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.”
