The tip of your nose is icy cold, your cheeks turn red, you exhale and your breath forms clouds before you, you inhale the cold, fresh air deep into your lungs – it’s finally time for winter hiking again. Where could be better for walks through a picturesque winter wonderland than Vorarlberg, the westernmost state of Austria? In this Collection, we’ve put together 10 varied Tours through the Montafon valley, Bregenz Forest, Kleinwalsertal valley and the regions of Lech-Zürs and St. Anton am Arlberg. The five regions have one thing in common – they are perfect for active winter holidays.

As you explore the snowy mountain landscape, you leave your everyday stress behind you. There’s a unique silence in the landscape. With only the sound of the snow crunching beneath your feet, you can completely switch off. The spectacular mountain scenery in the Voralberg is the finishing touch. You hike along well-maintained hiking trails through the Bregenz Forest, Montafon, Kleinwalsertal and Tyrolean Alps. Great highlights and rustic restaurants will greet you on the way – what could be better than a mug of hot chocolate or steaming Kaiserschmarrn pancakes after a hike through the snow?

Depending on how much snow there is, you may want to pack your hiking poles. A thermos flask with hot tea and a seat mat are definitely worth bringing too so that you can enjoy the beautiful viewpoints even more. Don’t forget to wear sun cream in sunny weather – the winter sun in the mountains can be surprisingly powerful.

Travelling to Vorarlberg is easy with the train. ÖBB trains depart from Zurich HB main station to Austria every two hours between 6.40am and 6.40pm. There are good connections to the winter regions from many stations too. With an SBB GA or Half-Fare Card, you can also travel for less in the neighbouring country with a 15% discount on the Austrian part of the route. For more information, timetables and reservations, see: to.austria.info/sbbchoesterreich.

Put on your winter boots and your hat and set off to the enchanting winter world in Vorarlberg. Here, you will find more information (in German) about the regions presented in this Collection:
