Silbertal in Vorarlberg

Mystical legends in wild and romantic natural scenery

In the valley of silver, its many stones sparkle. The name of the mountain village refers to the time when precious metal was mined on the Kristberg 500 years ago. Silbertal is the perfect location for mystical legends in wild and romantic natural scenery. Here you will hear the tales about the Teufelsbach, the “night people of Silbertal” and the great magician “Kupferlari” – enough reason why the idyllic community becomes the theatre stage once a year. There is hardly a local person who has not taken part in this.

If you have refuelled adequately on Kristberg mountain, then you are ready to immerse yourself in the untouched and precious European nature reserve Verwall. The landscape that opens up in the upper Silbertal is expansive and unique. While hiking along the wild Litz, you will become familiar with one of the purest areas of Vorarlberg. True beauty is often concealed.

Did you know that...

the Verwall is by far the largest European nature reserve in Vorarlberg?

“Given its size, many wild animals can find undisturbed refuge here.”

The entrance gate to Verwall

Setting off from Silbertal, you can immerse yourself in the unspoilt and precious landscape of the Verwall. At 120 km², the Natura 2000 region is the largest nature reserve in Vorarlberg and is even larger than four of the six Austrian national parks. Anyone who hikes through the European nature reserve might be lucky enough to come across one of the rare Alpine bird species such as golden eagles, peregrine falcons and rock ptarmigans.

“The Verwall offers a wide range of habitats – from the largest larch and stone pine forests in Vorarlberg to numerous bogs and lakes through to extensive pine, alder and Alpine rose bushes, colourful Alpmatten as well as rugged rock habitats,” says Christian Kuehs, Verwall Area Supervisor. Given its size, timid species in need of peace and quiet can find large, undeveloped areas that allow them to survive.
