Gargellen (A)

Gargellen (A)

Gargellen lies in a side valley (of the same name) of the Montafon in Austria’s Vorarlberg region, below the 2826-m-high Madrisahorn. Located at 1423 m, Gargellen is the highest-altitude holiday resort in the Montafon Valley.
As a result of the collision of primary rocks and limestone, the Alpine thrust has here created a particularly characteristic natural landscape phenomenon: round, worn mountain shapes can be seen next to bizarre rugged pinnacles.

Summer

the small holiday resort offers a wide range of activities such as mountain biking, climbing, hiking etc. and yet at the same time has been able to preserve its old roots. Gargellen borders on to Graubunden: hikers can reach St. Antönien over the St. Antönier Joch (also known as Gargäller Joch, 2379 m altitude), or Schlappin and Klosters over the Schlappiner Joch (2202 m altitude).The first stage of the Via Valtellina, the long-distance route from Montafon to Tirano, also leads over the Schlappiner Joch. The Via Valtellina follows the former trading route of Veltliner wine through three countries and three language and cultural regions to its start in the Veltlin.

Winter

Gargellen has no through traffic. It has a small skiing area on Schafberg stretching up to 2300 m altitude. Many Gargellen guests also use the Montafon ski pass which covers over 60 lift facilities and more than 200 km of runs in the rest of the Montafon region (Silvretta Nova, Hochjoch etc.). A ski bus takes guests to St. Gallenkirch, Tschagguns and Schruns.Many prepared winter-walking trails and signposted snowshoe trails make a pleasant way to explore the wonderful winter landscape in the valley or on the Schafberg plateau. Ski tourers cross the border on the Madrisa skitour from Gargellen to St. Antönien and Klosters. Gargellen also has a ski school, an ice-stick shooting rink and St. Gallenkirch just 8 km away, has a 5.5 km floodlit toboggan run for evening sledging

Highlights

  • Location and villagescape - Gargellen is quietly situated without through traffic at the rear of the Gargellen Valley and has developed gently with no large hotels.
  • Pass crossings to Switzerland - Gargellen is the departure point for two scenic pass tours in the direction of Graubunden, and together form an attractive round route for hiking or skiing tours.
