Silvretta Stausee

Silvretta Stausee

Situated at the highest point of the Silvretta High-Alpine Road, the Silvretta reservoir is one of the most impressive artificial lakes of the Tyrolean Alps. Open to the public since 1954, it is one of the region’s most popular attractions. It features three dams and is used to generate electricity for the surrounding region. 

The beautiful circular hike around the Silvretta reservoir is a special experience for the whole family. What’s more, the lake is a popular fishing spot.

There are also plenty of culinary highlights waiting for you at 2,000 metres above sea level. Drop by at one of the many cosy inns and restaurants and savour the magnificent views of the Silvretta and Montafon mountain ranges.
