Hurray, it’s raining! Now I can finally ...
... take advantage of the opportunities I neglected during the good weather :)
My bad weather program on Kristberg in Silbertal - Montafon
Rain is of vital important for intact nature, the animals and we humans. The water brings vitality, fresh, clean air and a lush green landscape. There is a wide variety of options for rainy days on the Kristberg and in Silbertal. Here are a few suggestions for you.
The history of mining in the Montafon
St. Agatha Miners’ Chapel is the oldest church in the Montafon and has the mining industry to thank for its construction. Further witnesses of this time are the accident shaft, which can still be clearly seen in the church, the Bruderhüsli (or Brothers’ House) in the Dalaas forest, and the historic Bartholomäberg mine. The Montafon-Klostertal mining area was the largest anywhere in the province of Vorarlberg at that time. Adolf Zudrell, the “flautist from Kristberghof” is very happy to tell you more about it.
A rain hike in the clean and fresh air
Hiking and walking in the rain is especially nice as this is the only time that perfectly pure air (free of dust, pollen, ...) exists. This is a true boon for those suffering from allergies or environmentally sensitive people. We are happy to recommend you a suitable hike when you’re here.
