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.

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.
