A high-alpine kaleidoscope unfolding, from state-of-the-art energy technology, glaciers spreading their tongues over rubble fields, to proud, majestic snow-clad peaks, the highest in Vorarlberg. An opportunity to stop and think about how humankind’s presence on earth is dwarfed by eons of Alpine history. And as if it had nothing to do with the world, a mountain stream gushes, murmurs and fumes along the wayside and across a carpet of blossom and bloom. Your gaze is caught by the Ochsental valley, which opens up only to the skies and the Silvretta reservoir, the largest of its kind in the Silvretta area with a total of 38 million cubic metres storage capacity. Where Vorarlberg’s highest peak, the 3312m-high Piz Buin dons the glacier like a coat, the views stretch right into infinity. Your gaze will be drawn to mountain giants by the sounding names of Silvrettahorn, Seehörner, Hohes Rad, Lobspitze, Dreiländerspitze. … Back in the 1920s, no one less than Ernest Hemingway revelled in this sublime panorama, when he spent the night at Madlenerhaus at the foot of the lake Silvretta dam, which of course did not even exist at the time.
