Die schönsten Wanderungen in und um Warth

Exciting tours for AlpenParks guests

Lush green meadows, dense forests, bright flowers, clear mountain lakes, the magical interplay of sky, clouds and sun on the horizon, summits close enough to touch – hikers love the wide range of options on the Arlberg. The imposing mountain massif is home to numerous athletic and leisurely tours for every taste, for every level and for all ages. AlpenParks Hotel & Apartment Arlberg, the prime location for unforgettable hiking on the Arlberg, is at the heart of it all.

Hiking in pristine nature

What’s today’s destination? You’ll find a wide selection of paths and tours around AlpenParks Hotel & Apartment Arlberg. The summer cable cars, such as the 4-seat chairlift in Warth-Arlberg, support your ascent and take you straight to hiking bliss. These tours are very much worth experiencing.

  • Village paths: Short, beginner-friendly round tours lead through Warth (4.4 km) and Schröcken (3.6 km) to the most beautiful places of both villages, while giving you a closer introduction to the hiking region.
  • Geiersberg Round Tour: About 400 metres of altitude along the Oberboden and Unterboden plots and the Bregenzerache for a leisurely 7.5 kilometre hike.
  • Karhorn: Several short, pretty intense ascents make this 12.1 km hike quite tricky. The devil’s in the details, but the views are awe-inspiring.
  • 3 Pass Tour: This medium-difficulty five-hour tour leads to the mountain passes Koblatpass, Gemstelpass and Hochalppass. Surefootedness is required.
  • Wannenkopf Round Tour: ‘Only’ 5.3 km but almost constant ascending and a tricky descent make this two-hour hike into an unexpected challenge.
  • Widderstein: Conquer more than 1,100 metres of altitude around the Widderstein in about six hours. Several high-alpine ascents should generally only be undertaken by hiking pros.
  • Butzenseerundweg: Narrow paths, trickly climbs, slippery passages and increasingly sparse scenery accompany one of the region’s toughest tours. The view across the idyllic lake is worth the effort.
