The south of Vorarlberg

Great variety in the Montafon region

Eleven villages and eight municipalities make up one of the most popular holiday destinations in southern Vorarlberg: the varied Montafon region. Nestled between the Verwall, Rätikon and Silvretta mountains, the picturesque valley is crossed by the river Ill and boasts a variety of cultural highlights, activities, sports opportunities and havens of relaxation.

Traditions and customs in Vorarlberg’s Montafon region

Whether it’s the annual return of the cows from the Alpine pastures, the “Maisäß” or Sura Kees cheese: The Montafon region is full of old customs and traditions.

Even the region’s name goes back to the olden times. After all, the primary local language of the region used to be Rhaeto-Romanic until the 15th century. Although the origin of the name has not been fully clarified to this day, it is believed that it goes back to the Rhaeto-Romanic terms “Mont davon” (“mountain in front” or “foothill”) or “Munt tovun” (“mountain with holes” or “mining mountain”). 

The annual “Alpabtrieb” that celebrates the end of the farming year, is one of the region’s event highlights – and perhaps also one of your holiday highlights? You can also enjoy a taste of traditional Montafon Sura Kees cheese at the rustic Stoba 7 restaurant.
