The dream route of the Alps for aficionados
The Silvretta-Hochalpenstraße connects the municipalities of Galtür (1,584 m) in Paznaun and Gaschurn/Partenen (1,051 m) in Montafon. With 34 changes of direction, it leads over the Bielerhöhe Pass (2,032 m), past the power stations and reservoirs of Vorarlberger Illwerke AG.
The route can be called a pioneering achievement of construction engineers in route construction. Alongside the Arlberg Pass route, or the Arlberg Tunnel, and the connection from Warth into the Lechtal, it forms the third connection between Tyrol and Vorarlberg.
The Silvretta-Hochalpenstraße is considered a popular trip destination on the border between Tyrol and Vorarlberg. Harmoniously embedded into the high-Alpine landscape, this pass route offers guests unique nature experiences. In the middle of the imposing mountainous landscape, the dream route of the Alps weaves elegantly up towards the Bielerhöhe Pass. The Bielerhöhe Pass at the cusp of the Silvretta-Hochalpenstraße between the Montafon and the Paznaun is the starting point for numerous hikes and tours.
A fascinating alpine panorama around the Silvretta reservoir with a magnificent view of the Piz-Buin glacier and Vorarlberg’s highest mountain, the Piz Buin (3,312m), completes the set and makes every trip unforgettable.
The restaurant is located right by the Silvretta reservoir. The restaurant is very popular with travel companies and for company or club trips due to the large car park and the spacious restaurant with a view of the Silvretta reservoir.
The 3*hotel is a nice example of how one can enjoy outstanding gastronomy at 2,000 m above sea level. The Silvretta-Haus impresses with first-class service and comprehensive services. Inside, there are 14 state-of-the-art and brightly designed rooms, recreation rooms as well as attractive sport and fitness facilities in addition to seminar rooms with an especially pleasant atmosphere. The Silvretta-Haus is a member of “bewusstmontafon”, an initiative for the promotion of regional products. Planned by Much & Much Untertrifaller and Gerhard Hörburger, 1990 to 1992. Award: Piranesi Architecture Award 1993
