Ried im Oberinntal – an overview of excursion destinations:

Two wonderful mountain passes and a prince – Davos/Liechtenstein

After a lovely journey through tranquil Engadine, you reach Davos via the Flüela Pass (2383m). Continue through romantic Prättigau to the principality of Liechtenstein and to Vaduz. After a stay and some sightseeing, continue via Feldkirch and Bludenz into Austria, to Montafon. From there, proceed via the inspiring Silvretta High Alpine Road to get to Paznauntal. Pass Ischgl and proceed via Landeck to get back to Ried.


Border triangle journeying – Austria/Switzerland/Italy

A ‘Classic’ in Alpine excursions. Travel via Reschen Pass into South Tyrol’s romantic Trafoital. Pass the Ortler massif (3905m; the highest mountain in South Tyrol) via the highest and oldest Alpine crossing area, Stilfser Joch (2757m), and take the Umbrail Pass to get to Münstertal. This incomparable route then proceeds through the Swiss National Park into Engadine, through dreamy villages such as Scuol, back to Ried.

Silvretta High Alpine Road

The Silvretta High Alpine Road links Montafon (Vorarlberg) with Paznauntal (North Tyrol). The western ramp has an altitude difference of 985 m and 30 hairpin bends, by contrast the eastern ramp has just two. Enjoy a breath-taking view from the Silvretta reservoir on the Bielerhöhe.

Bernina Express – A regal ride

A highlight in your holiday activities. Via Swiss Engadin to Pontresina (1805m). A seat in the ‘Panoramawagen’ on the well-known Bernina Express train awaits (advance reservation required). Take in the breath-taking landscape en route to the destination, the town of Poschiavo (1014m). Head back via Puschlav, an southern valley in the Swiss Alps. If you want you can proceed via the Italian duty-free zone in Livigno (+ 60 km) or directly via the Bernina Pass back to Ried.

Our tip: The Kaunertal Glacier

From Prutz the road branches off into Kaunertal. Take this route to reach the end of the valley. Pass the superb reservoir, the Gepatschspeicher (the biggest reservoir in western Austria), up to 2750 metres. On the glacier there is the option to take the Karlesjochbahn to the Dreiländerblick, at an elevation of 3108 metres. This impressive glacier realm will inspire you … In summer there are superb opportunities for cycling and hiking.
