Vandans in Vorarlberg

At the foot of the majestic Zimba

The flower village, once crowned the most beautiful in Europe, is by the imposing Vandans rock wall. Here you can find rural charm and an intriguing mix of modern architecture and traditional Montafon houses. Old craftsmanship is preserved everywhere here – from artistic embroidery through to award-winning beekeeping.

With the Golmerbahn you will reach the family-friendly skiing and hiking area of Erlebnisberg Golm – the starting of point for diverse downhill runs in winter and extensive high-altitude hikes in the warmer months of the year. Passing by the imposing peaks of the Rätikon and Lünersee with its crystal-clear water.

Setting off from Vandans, climbing enthusiasts can find ample opportunity in the Rätikon to sound out their limits on the famous Kirchlispitzen or majestic Zimba – the Montafon’s Matterhorn.

Golm - Erlebnisberg in the Montafon

Fun and thrills for the whole family

Whether it’s a family descent or beginners’ lift, families with a passion for winter sports are particularly well taken care of in Golm thanks to a range of special offers. Children of various ages are not only superbly looked after there, but can also playfully learn the most important rules of the pistes at eleven interesting stations in the Golmi Wald forest. “Everything is very compact on the Golm. Parents can go skiing in a relaxed manner or enjoy the sun on the terrace and still keep an eye on their children,” says Hermann Wachter, Head of the Schneesportschule Golm, explaining the merits of the skiing area.

In the summer you can take the Golmerbahn to reach one of the most beautiful hiking areas in the Rätikon in just a few minutes, providing you with a superb panorama view. After extensive high-altitude hikes, Golmi’s Forschungspfad, Waldseilpark-Golm, Flying-Fox-Golm or a rapid journey on the Alpine-Coaster-Golm provide variety and thrills.

Did you know that...

Zimba is also often described as the Montafon’s Matterhorn because of its shape?

“From the summit, even the sailboats on Bodensee can be seen with perfect conditions.”

Zimba - the climbing mountain for the truly daring

It is enthroned upon the entrance of the Montafon and, with its 2,643 metres, it is the highlight of the Vandans rock wall in the truest sense of the word. Its shape makes it one of the most beautiful peaks in the Rätikon. We are talking about the Zimba, of course.

Gustl Wolf can still remember his first Zimba ascent. At the age of 16, he reached the summit via the eastern ridge, the most difficult route. Now he has stood next to the wooden summit cross several hundred times. He accompanies many tours as a mountain guide. “Climbing to the summit with excited Alpinists is a new and special experience every time,” says the Montafon native.

Arriving at the top, a breathtaking view awaits the Alpinists. “With perfect conditions, sailboats on Lake Constance can be seen from the end of Vorarlberg”, says Gustl Wolf.
