Madlener Haus
Madlener Haus

The mountain hut is located 60 meters below the Bielerhöhe in Vorarlberg, to the west below the dam of the Silvretta reservoir. In summer the hut is an ideal destination for families, mountaineers, hikers, bikers and motorcyclists.

We offer 46 beds (single, double and shared rooms) and 10 places in the dormitory. In our cozy guest room and on the sun terrace we serve specialties from Tyrol and Vorarlberg.

Alpe Vermunt
Alpe Vermunt
restaurant

This Alpine lodge is located just beneath the dam wall for the Silvretta reservoir, right on the popular Silvretta High Alpine Road, making it a popular excursion destination for guests from Tyrol and Vorarlberg alike. The Alpine area at Alpe Vemunt starts at the end of the valley in the Paznaun on the western side, and spans across the Bielerhöhe down to the start of the town of Partenen (Vorarlberg). It is also a well-known hiking paradise for hikes into the well-known lateral valleys - Biel- & Ochsental, Klostertal and Kromertal. Its own produce such as cheese, butter and milk are very popular with guests and make a stop-off on the Bielerhöhe even nicer.

Alpengasthof Zeinisjoch
Alpengasthof Zeinisjoch
restaurant

Alpengasthof Zeinisjoch, at the deep blue Zeinissee and right next to the Kops reservoir, really is one of THE real classic excursions in the Paznaun region. The natural surroundings here can be seen at their most beautiful. Where wild and tranquil waters, as well as rugged rock faces and lush pastures meet, lies Alpengasthof Zeinisjoch at 2.000 metres altitude, on the border between Tyrol and Vorarlberg on the sun-blessed Zeinisjoch plateau. This stop-off point which is rich in tradition provides indulgence with delicious classics from Tyrol and Vorarlberg and demonstrates - not just geographically - solidarity between these federal states. This Alpine guesthouse is literally in the middle of the mountains and it is not just tradition and originality that come together here, nature and adventure do too, creating a genuine holiday pleasure.

Berggasthof Piz Buin
Berggasthof Piz Buin
restaurant

Berggasthof Piz Buin on the Bielerhöhe’s sunny plateau is a genuinely paradisiacal excursion destination; after all, it is located right at the Silvretta reservoir at 2.032m and provides views to the mighty Piz Buin, which, with its considerable 3.312m, has the highest elevation in the Silvretta group. The Bielerhöhe and with it Berggasthof Piz Buin are accessed via the Silvretta High Alpine toll road, which is located on the border between Tyrol and Vorarlberg and which has for years captivated many guests.

The mountain guesthouse can seat 140 people in its two restaurants and the sun terrace with its panorama view is especially popular. There is barely any other place where the majestic summits of the ‘Blue Silvretta’ can be enjoyed in such a relaxing manner than here.

Faulbrunnalm
Faulbrunnalm
restaurant

Our Faulbrunnalm opens in summer like the "Alpkogelbahn" lift and is then open for you every day. We organize weekly barbecues, mountain breakfasts and “Frühshoppen” every Sunday with changing live music.
We look forward to your visit.
Your Huber family and team!

Jamtalhütte
Jamtalhütte
restaurant

Jamtal is one of the most important lateral valleys in Paznaun, so it’s hardly surprising that one of the biggest and most modern Alpine association lodges is located in the Silvretta. Jamtalhütte is situated at the end of the valley at 2.164m, to the south of Galtür, and is an Alpine training centre for the ‘Deutschen Alpenverein’. Countless summits in the ‘Blue Silvretta’ await mountaineers; the ascent is easy for non-mountaineers to tackle and the scenery is entrancing. With its two contemporary seminar rooms, this lodge, which is laden with history, doesn’t just provide perfect conditions for further Alpine training; with the range on offer on the Culinary St. Jacob’s Way Trail it also provides gourmets with tasty treats. Hikers, Alpinists, mountain bikers, climbers and families meet up in Jamtalhütte; people who enjoy sports will hardly find such a wide range of sporting activities elsewhere.

Kiosk Kopsseestüberl
Kiosk Kopsseestüberl

The kiosk "Kopsseestüberl" is located directly at the Kops reservoir.

Konstanzerhütte
Konstanzerhütte
restaurant

Konstanzer Hütte is in an idyllic location in a forest and you can, for instance, hike to it from St. Anton am Arlberg; it can also be accessed via the Neue Heilbronner Hütte coming from Galtür. From Gasthof Zeinisjoch you can hike to the lodge in around five hours and factor in a stop-off at Verbella Alpe and the Neuen Heilbronner Hütte to replenish you energy stores for some more hiking. The cosy Konstanzer Hütte is located at 1.688m and from the sunny guest garden you can enjoy the view to the Patteriol at 3056m. This popular lodge is also a stage on the well-known Verwall circuit.

Larein Alpe
Larein Alpe
restaurant

In a peaceful and somewhat secluded location, Alpe Larein is tranquilly embedded in the mountains in the Paznaun region. Close to the Silvretta wildlife park, pretty much right between Galtür and Ischgl, is where the idyllic Lareintal valley starts; from here Alpe Lorein can be reached in around two hours and provides an opportunity to sample and purchase some regional produce such as Paznaun’s Alpine cheese, butter and milk. Up here, Alpe Lorein, which is also a member of the ‘Genussregion’ for Paznaun’s Alpine cheese, produces this tasty cheese and those who want to can take a look at the Alpe’s own cheese dairy, to see where this Paznaun classic is made and matured.

Menta Alm
Menta Alm
restaurant

The little Menta Am at the start of the Jamtal is accessible in around 40 minutes from Galtür village centre, which means it is excellently suited to an excursion with children. At 1.657m children get to run around in the play area while adults relax on the sun terrace. Menta Alm serves typically hearty fare such as bacon, cheese, ‘Brettljause’ and apple strudel, which, with the Jamtal in the background, just couldn’t taste any better. As celebrations should be held on the date they fall, there is the opportunity to organise barbecue evenings on the Alpine pasture and bring the day to a lovely close.

Neue Heilbronner Hütte
Neue Heilbronner Hütte
restaurant

Neue Heilbronner Hütte is situated on Vorarlberg soil, yet is still a very worthwhile destination from Paznaun. The Zeinisjoch close to Kops reservoir is the ideal starting point for a hiking or mountain biking tour to Neue Heilbronner Hütte. At 2.320m, it is located in a quiet lateral valley in the midst of the impressive Alpine mountains in the Verwall group. The lodge is a real hub for bikers on the Transalp Route in particular, who pass by here and re-energise for the rest of their journey to Riva. Alpine fans will find impressive crossing points here to neighbouring Alpine lodges, while day-trippers will also find leisurely routes. A network of altitude paths enable people to enjoy trekking, summit tours and circuit hikes, as well as multi-day hikes from lodge to lodge.

Saarbruecker Hütte
Saarbruecker Hütte
restaurant

You’ll be hard pushed to find an Alpine lodge which has a more impressive location than Saarbrücker Hütte. It is set in a superior position in the mountains and from quite a bit beneath you have to look very closely to make it out. Its location at 2.538m on the south-easterly ridge of the Kleinlitzner makes it the highest located mountain refuge in the Silvretta. The glacier mountainscape provided by the Litzner-Seehorn group make up its immediate background, the crossing of which makes for one the loveliest two peaks’ tour in the Silvretta group. The lodge can be accessed from Bielerhöhe (Silvretta reservoir) via Madlenerhaus, and also from Vorarlberg’s Vermunt reservoir, in around three hours. A hike which is well worth doing in any event.

Scheiben Alm
Scheiben Alm
restaurant

Around half way between Galtür and the Jamtalhütte is the Scheibenalm at just over 1800m. This cosy stop-off point offers own-made produce such as Paznaun’s Alpine cheese, butter and curds which you can enjoy on the terrace while enjoying the view to the Jamtal glacier. The lodge is particularly popular with families, since it takes around 1 ½ hours to hike to the Scheibenalm. At the end June/start of July in particular the Alpine roses in full bloom provide a particularly impressive backdrop for hiking, something which you shouldn’t miss on any account.

Verbella Alpe
Verbella Alpe
restaurant

The idyllically located Verbella Alpe lies half way between the starting point at Gasthof Zeinisjoch and Heilbronner Hütte. At 1.938m you not only find a traditional Alpine lodge atmosphere, there is also a natural landscape with long drawn-out wide valleys, rushing streams and superb panorama trails. Superb views and vistas are also guaranteed for everyone. The Verbella Alpe is located in the Vorarlberg area and is a place for anyone looking for tranquillity and viewing balconies which are within easy reach, since from here there is a panorama view deep into the Montafon. A hike to the nearby Neuen Heilbronner Hütte provides a suitable additional tour.

Wiesbadener Hütte
Wiesbadener Hütte
restaurant

At Wiesbadener Hütte you feel as though you are close to the very impressive summits, since it seems that you could just reach out and touch the Piz Buin, at 3.312m. The lodge itself is at the end of the Ochsental at 2.448m and it is not just professional mountain and hiking guides who hold the excellent location of this lodge in high regard, which can be accessed whether via Ochsental in around two hours, and via the Radsattel in around three hours. Close by (around 200m) is a challenging climbing garden which provides practice and training opportunities for beginners and experts alike. Those who prefer something tranquil can simply enjoy some local specialities on the sun terrace and views of the Piz Buin.

Madlener Haus
Madlener Haus
restaurant

    The starting point ‘Friedrichshafener Hut' car park is located in the Valzur area between Ischgl and Galtür and is accessible either by car or by bus (Piel bus stop – then walk a short section out of the valley).

    The route proceeds upwards, in lots of switchbacks, but is never too steep - you cover some 500 meters to reach your destination. A fantastic viewing point beneath Friedrichshafener Hut (closed in the winter), with views to the impressive mountains in the Silvretta and Samnaun groups. Return via the same route.

  • Galtür – Silvapark

    • closed
    • e easy

    After a short journey on the Alpkogelbahn you reach the starting point of the Silvapark winter hiking trail.

    Linger for a while in one of the loungers to take in a view which will take your breath away. Follow the signposted trail into the valley. The hike passes the Faulbrunnalm and Fluchthornalm mountain restaurants. Enjoy the wonderful sunshine on the terraces at the mountain restaurants and indulge in some delicious Tyrolean food. After a lovely hike through the SILVAPARK ski area you reach the hamlet of Oberwirl. From here you still have the opportunity to take the winter hiking trail which proceeds to Galtür. 

    Note: Walks on the hiking trail are carried out at your risk. Skiers/snowboarders use the entire area, so watch out for them, particularly when crossing the pistes.

  • Galtür – Silvretta – Bielerhöhe

    • closed
    • d difficult

    The course of this 18 km long winter hiking trail is challenging, but the wonderful alpine panoramas and snow-covered mountain scenery soon make any exertion forgotten.

    The enjoyment comes easy on the sun-kissed Bielerhöhe pass (2,040 m) with its awesome Silvretta reservoir! The tour starts in the Galtür district of Wirl, directly by the lower terminus of the Birkhahnbahn. A steady climb for some 9 km to the Bielerhöhe pass, where the impressive Silvretta reservoir is located. Away from the hustle and bustle, relaxing here comes easy. The way back is along the same route. No short-cut by bus is possible.

    • closed
    • m medium

    The hike starts at the football pitch in Galtür, first walking along the Trisanna stream over level terrain to the hamlet of Tschaffein.

    From there, take the footway to the "Rifugio" holiday homes and then a short bit along the A-road, before continuing left back onto the steamrolled winter hiking trail. Above the road, hike through the woodland until walking down to the wildlife park along Valzurbach stream. After a short climb, continue along level terrain through the forest until getting to the romantically located forest chapel, and then the hamlet of Tschaffein, before arriving back in Galtür again. The entire circuit of a total of 9 km (from and back to Galtür) does require some fitness - but any effort is soon forgotten when taking in the views of the mighty Ballunspitze (2,671 m) rising up from Galtür. Those who think this is too far can shorten the circuit by hiking only to the wildlife park and taking a bus back to Galtür from there.

    • m medium

    The winter hiking trail between Galtür and Wirl requires medium strong fitness with its 4 km and gentle climbs. Start off at the Galtür football.

    The trail leads across flat terrain along the Vermunt stream and into the valley, until you get to Wirl district and the lower terminus of the Birkhahnbahn cable car. Experience the snow-covered scenery in Galtür, the highest located township in Paznaun, at just below 1,600 m and sheltered by the soaring mountains of the Silvretta Group. Numerous 3,000-metre peaks are within touching distance here and the scenery is shaped by the prominent peaks. Galtür means "Experiencing high alpine winter sports!" This tour is especially recommendable on Wednesday evenings when the lights of the night-time skiing light up the Silvapark.

  • Galtür – Zeinis – Kops

    The area around the Zeinis & Kops reservoirs is surely one of the most idyllic spots in Paznaun.

    By the border between Tirol & Vorarlberg, impressive views of the sheltering giants of the Silvretta group await. The route starts in Wirl district opposite the St. Antonius chapel – just before Hotel Wirlerhof. Past the alpine farm, a steady climb on the old Zeinisstraße leads towards Zeinis or Kops. The last bit before the two lakes is level again. First you'll get to the smaller Zeinis reservoir, then Kops reservoir. An impressive backdrop for all winter sports fans opens up here! Please note that no rest stops with food or drink are available up here. A total of 11.5 km is to be negotiated on this route. No short-cut by bus is possible.

    This leisurely winter hiking trail leads from the Silvretta cable car along the valley trail towards Kappl.

    After the Silvretta parking lot, cross a small bridge and follow the signs for "Winterwanderweg Ebene". Shortly after, cross the rushing Madlein stream and the districts of Versahl, Vergröß, Platt and finally Ebene follow. On this path, slightly above the Trisanna, you can escape the hustle and bustle of the lifestyle metropolis and enjoy the snow-covered scenery.

  • Ischgl – Mutta

    • closed
    • e easy

    The winter hiking trail up to the Mutta leads from Ischgl village centre through forests covered in deep snow uphill in switchbacks.

    From up here you have wonderful views across all of Ischgl and can observe the lively goings-on at a distance. The wide path winds uphill for 2.5 km, rewarding those getting to the top with great views. From the Silvretta cable car, walk past the parking lot and after crossing the bridge follow the signs for Mutta. On the way back, the route can be extended a bit and some sunshine caught by not walking back in direction of the parking lot again after Jungmann Inn, but taking the turn-off before and hiking to the hamlet of Paznaun. A few benches beckon to put in a rest, offering fine views of Ischgl town centre. From the hamlet of Paznaun, it's back to the village again.
