Winter holidays in Austria & the Montafon

Vorarlberg snow experiences beyond the ski regions

The idyllic snow scenery attracts many visitors also beyond the ski regions to enjoy a ski holiday in the Montafon. Winter holidays in Austria however offer much more than just skiing. Winter experiences including cross-country skiing, snowshoe hiking and tobogganing are highly popular with the guests of the Löwen Hotel. Whether enjoying a sporty or relaxing holiday, the Löwen Hotel in Vorarlberg offers perfect access to all winter activities in Austria. 

Hikes through the snow-covered Vorarlberg scenery have something primal about them. More often than not, the only thing to hear is the crunching beneath your snowshoes. And your breathing when scaling the mountain. Even our ancestors appreciated snowshoes when they were forced to move around between mountains and valleys. Nowadays, hikes in the clear white Austrian snow are experiencing an upturn, especially during the winter holiday. More than 20 hiking trails around the Montafon ski region constantly offer new insights into the nature of the mountain scenery.

Steadily gliding through the Austrian mountain world. Feeling clear air and the good feeling of doing something for yourself and your body. Cross-country skiing in the Montafon ski region unites sport with nature enjoyment and exercise with recreation. More than 80 km of classic cross-country ski runs weave between the impressive mountain summits. The region also offers 17 km of skating runs.

A winter holiday in Austria isn’t complete without a mountain descent by sleigh. The toboggan runs in varying difficulties even wow more cautious visitors. Montafon sees tobogganing by day and night, and some toboggan runs are also illuminated at night. It goes without saying that you don’t have to bring your own tobogganing equipment. You can rent sleighs directly on site.


  • Silvretta Montafon Kapell: 5.4 km long and ideal for families
  • Golm Latschau: 3 km long and a bit more challenging
  • Lindauerhütte: a 7 km natural toboggan run
  • Grabs/Gauertal
  • Kristberg: unassuming but fun toboggan run particularly popular with the youngest guests
  • Muttersberg
  • Silvretta Montafon Garfrescha: Vorarlberg’s longest night toboggan run with a length of 5.5 km


It’s always nice to exchange your skis for sturdy winter shoes during a winter holiday, particularly when the Montafon ski region entices you to venture out onto the Vorarlberg summits with unique experiences. The hike from the Apilagrat to the Sennigrat even starts before the skiing starts up – always accompanied by breathtaking mountain scenery. At night, torchlight hikes often delight guests of all ages. Winter holidays in Austria are as much about the warming food as they are the winter sports; a nice “Kasknöpflerunde” (cheese spaetzli meal) and lots of fresh alpine air are also included.

You can also cap off your adventurous winter holiday in the Montafon with the following activities:

  • Ice skating, ice disco, ice hockey or ice stock sport in the winter world of Montafon
  • Slope bully riding
  • Paragliding in dizzying heights
  • Romantic carriage rides through snow-covered scenery
