Are you looking for a nice hike for the whole family? Then the Gauertal AlpkulTour trail in Montafon is just the thing for you!
The way to the Lindauer Hütte
After a very relaxed breakfast, we took the Golmerbahn in the late morning and drove it to the mountain station. From where the Gauertal AlpTour trail kulstarts. From the top station of the Golmerbahn you follow the signs towards Lindauer Hütte. The first few kilometres are still a bit uphill and downhill, but really not much and therefore really doable for everyone. On the way you pass different sculptures by Roland Haas. The sculptures all deal with the farming culture of the Montafon. For those who cannot speak or read the Montafon dialect, a QR code scanner is recommended in order to be able to translate the information of the individual sculptures. This gives you some different insights into the cultures of the Montafon.
After about half of the way you will reach the Lindauer Hütte where you can stop for a great break. Thanks to our good timing, we arrived there exactly at lunchtime and were able to stop for an excellent lunch at the Lindauer Hütte.
A second break in the Gauertalhaus
From the Lindauer Hütte you follow the path back from the Gauertal towards the Golmerbahn. After a good 1 ½ hours hike there is another very nice place to stop for a bite to eat – the Gauertalhaus, where you can toast the beautiful tour very well. Since the weather was initially very cloudy, we took the chance and stopped also at the Gauertalhaus for a drink and enjoy the now shining sun in one of the deck chairs. This is really the perfect spot to for a break.
You can find a detailed report about our tour here. Unfortunately, only in German.
Another hike with an overnight stay at the Lindauer Hütte starts and ends at the Lünersee.
