Silvretta High Alpine Road • Description

Silvretta Hochalpenstrasse (Silvretta High Alpine Road) is considered to be one of the most popular panoramic roads in the Alps.
It runs from Partenen in the Montafon region through a total of 34 switchbacks to Galtür in the Paznaun valley. The highest point, Bielerhöhe Pass (6,795 feet), is the border between the Austrian states of Vorarlberg and Tyrol.
From Bielerhöhe a trail leads along Silvretta lake and up Ochsental to Wiesbadener Hütte (8,016 feet). The lodge offers a spectacular view of Piz Buin (10,866 feet), the most popular mountain in the region and border between Austria and Switzerland.

Silvretta High Alpine Road • Personal Notes

Thanks to my parents, Sandra, Lisa, and I had the opportunity to spend three weeks in Europe, including some time in the Montafon region of the Austrian Alps.
My plan was to rent a road bike and ride Silvretta High Alpine Road (Bludenz - Landeck - Bludenz). Since I could not find a fitting bike with a mountain cassette, I rented a mountain bike instead, shortened the route, and added the trail from Bielerhöhe to Wiesbadener Hütte. A few days later we hiked this trail and ascended Piz Buin.
