Hurray, it's snowing and it's cold!

“Finally, I can try all the offers and services that I neglected when the sun was shining!”

What would a winter be without snow? In order to have a winter wonderland we sometimes have to let nature do what it does best and maybe enjoy a day without any outdoor activities when the snowfall is too heavy. But this also means that we can look forward to the wonderful snow-covered landscapes on the Austrian Alps the next day. While there is a snow storm outside why not try one of the other activities in the Montafon? Here is what you can do on the Kristberg? 

Mining history?

Winter holiday at the Kristberg Panoramagasthof
The winter wonderland Silbertal Valley in Austria

The St. Agatha miners' chapel is Montafon's oldest church and was built due to the mining activities in the area. Further witnesses of this time are the “Unglücksstollen” (adversity mine), which can still be seen in the church today, and the Bruderhüsli in the Dalaaser forest. The Montafon-Klostertal mining region was once the biggest in the whole of Vorarlberg. Adolf will gladly tell you more about it.

Remedial massage?

Karin, our certified massage therapist, will indulge you with relaxing, remedial massages (classic, foot reflexology, tissue massage or lymph drainage, Reiki treatment or kinesiology with Touch for Health).


The Infrared-Sweat-Cabin offers enough room for up to 4 people and can be used for various treatments (active sauna, stress reduction, intensive skin care, vitality enhancement, colour therapy, …). We do kindly ask you for your understanding that we can only offer you this free service if you make a reservation in advance. We will be pleased to provide you with our Kristberg bathrobes.


When was the last time that you took the time to read an interesting book? You will find some great books in our book cupboard on the 1st floor next to the massage room.

Rain Hike?

Hiking and walking in the rain is especially healthy, because the air is the clearest and freshest when it is raining (no dust, no pollen, …). This is a true recreation especially for allergy sufferers and sensitive people. Our yellow “Kristberg umbrellas” are available for you at the entrance and also in the restaurant.

Room of Games?

Behind the Muttstöbli you will find our “Spielraum - Room of Games”. There you will find a ping-pong table. Table tennis balls and bats as well as coins (50 cent coins) for a nice game of table tennis are available at the reception. In the Muttstöbli you can also borrow videos and DVDs. Enjoy a bit of cinema flair on the Kristberg. When did you last enjoy a nice board game? If you fancy a bit of “ludo”, a card game, chess or Yahtzee, etc, just tell us. We definitely have the right game for you.

Therapy session?

Are you suffering from phobia (fear of heights, ...)? Do you want to get rid of bad habits (smoking, nail biting, eating habits, …)? We will most likely be able to help you.

What else is there to do:

  • “Aktivpark” Activity Park in Schruns-Tschagguns? The Aktivpark in Schruns-Tschagguns has a roofed ice-rink for ice-skating as well as for curling.
  • Indoor golf? You will be able to enjoy golfing even on rainy days with the state-of-the-art golf simulator at the Bergkristall Hotel in Silbertal.

  • Power Station Tour? In Latschau, just above Tschagguns, the showroom at the biggest pumped storage hydro power station is open all day and provides insights into the Vorarlberg Illwerke tunnel system and power station. (closed on Monday mornings)
  • Trip to Feldkirch? Feldkirch not only has a stunningly beautiful town centre but also offers the opportunity to visit the Schattenburg (an old castle with castle museum) or the wildlife park, where you can meet alpine animals like boars, ibex, deer, stags, chamois, wolves, eagles and more from up close.
  • Shopping? A shopping tour through the pedestrian area in Schruns, the Wilhelmer outlet centre in Vandans, in the Zimbapark or the pedestrian area in Bludenz offers a great alternative in rainy weather.
