Against a backdrop of lush forests and towering peaks, splashing mountain streams and roaring waterfalls, the panorama is so impossibly idyllic that it hardly seems real. The natural beauty of the Alps in summer has to be seen to be believed.

Historically a way-station on an ancient international smuggling route, present-day Gargellen has acquired a completely new identity.

Living in harmony with nature is something which comes easily to those who call Gargellen home. Whether you prefer mountain biking, walking or climbing, there are endless ways of discovering for yourself the varied natural beauty of the Montafon region

Gargellen in winter

A winter fairytale at an altitude of 1,423 m

Gargellen, the highest winter sports resort in the Montafon is not only renowned for its therapeutic mountain air: it is unrivalled in many other ways too. Possessively surrounded by majestic peaks, ths picturesque mountain village is a well-kept secret among aficionados of winter sports and those who love snow and natural scenery.

In the past, thanks mainly to its remote position, only very few visitors found their way to this gem of a mountain village. As a result Gargellen has managed to retain its unspoilt atmosphere and alpine flair right up to the present day. 

Ski runs leading right back to the hotel, incredibly reliable snow conditions and the unlimited freedom of uncrowded slopes. With a total of only 110 inhabitants Gargellen, boasting fabulous ski runs in the heart of the breathtaking Montafon mountains, is an eldorado for skiers and winter sports fans in Vorarlberg. With a reliable snow record and ideal winter conditions, the area has become a holiday resort of unrivalled variety and beauty.
