Gaschurn-Partenen in Vorarlberg

The Silvretta mountain range, which is unrivalled in the Alps, runs through here and unites the locations of Gaschurn and Partenen.

The Piz Buin, the Silvretta-Hochalpenstraße, spectacular glacier worlds. Welcome to the “Blue Silvretta” of Gaschurn and Partenen. Both locations not only combines the imposing mountain tops, but also the use of hydropower and the production of renewable energy. The three reservoirs of Silvretta, Kops and Vermunt demonstrate the mountain’s abundance of water.

Activity during the day, and liveliness at night: The traditional village centre in Gaschurn not only impresses with its traditional Montafon houses, but also with famous bars in the immediate vicinity – popular among those in the party mood.

Two worlds that couldn’t be more different, yet very close together in Gaschurn and Partenen. The mountain and the valley. Activity during the day, and liveliness at night. The ski run and the lounge chair. The luxurious hotel bed, the comfortable mountain hut. Energy and relaxation. You can choose something new everyday in the south of the Montafon.

Legend of Piz Buin

Glacier tour to the highest point in Vorarlberg

The highest mountain in Vorarlberg, the Piz Buin (3,312 m), looms majestically over the Ochsental glacier on the southern end of Vorarlberg. Even if 150 years have passed since it was first climbed, the fascination with this peak belonging to the Silvretta massif has not ebbed.

Physically fit mountain enthusiasts reach the summit in a train from Bielerhöhe (at 2,000 m). They require about six hours for this. On the contrary, amateur mountaineers can stay overnight at the Wiesbadener Hütte (2,443 m). After an early climb to the Ochsental glacier, it continues on the cable of a mountain guide – making use of the early morning for the ascent to the summit.

It is three to four hours before the traditional greeting “Bütsch’il Piz!” – “Kiss the summit!” – can be exchanged and one can gaze into the distance: from the silhouette of the Ortler group to the Piz Linard (3,411 m) through to the ridge of the Rätikon.

The power of water in the Montafon

It is a pity that people think so little about the importance of water for life. In the Montafon that is not the case. Here, you can directly experience its power and beauty in the mountains around the Silvretta.

There, where water is snow and ice for many months of the year, the milky blue reservoirs are witness to the abundance of water in the Silvretta and provide people with electricity generated from hydropower. A new plant, the tremendous Obervermuntwerk II, is under construction between the two lakes, deep inside the mountains.

With the Illwerke team, Hansjörg Schwarz is ensuring that no trace of construction work will be seen once all the excavators, pipes and construction site provisions have disappeared.
