A genuine feast for the eyes: Towering mountain ranges wherever you turn your gaze, two tarns and a reservoir nestling idyllically in between. Take your time to absorb the scenery and pause for a while!

Author’s recommendation

Hochjoch – A hiker’s and skier’s delight

In the summer, the Hochjoch above Schruns is a popular area for mountain walking. Various guided walks are organised during the Montafon summer programme. In winter, the Hochjoch is part of the Silvretta Montafon ski resort.

Turn-by-turn directions

Ride up on Hochjoch Bahn to Kapell, carry on to Sennigrat either on foot or on the double-seater chair lift. From that exposed ridge, dazzling views of four mountain ranges unfold: the Silvretta, Raetikon, Verwall and Lechquellen mountains. From there, a high-altitude trail leads to Wormser Hütte and then returns to Kapell downhill, passing Herzsee, Schwarzsee and Seebligasee. In winter, these slopes and trails are populated by skiers. Lake Seebligasee was constructed as a reservoir to store water for artificial snow-making.    

Excursion to the Kreuzjoch (2,398 m) about 1/2 hour.

Wir sind die Tour heute ab der Bergstation gelaufen (ohne Sessellift) und sie war wunderschön. Am Anfang gab es viel "Verkehr", später wurde es weniger. Wir haben die Tour dann noch zur Zamangspitze ausgedehnt (hin und zurück ca. 1:30h zusätzlich). Insgesamt ist diese Tour für geübte Wanderer sehr gut zu gehen und nicht zu anstrengend.
