The Paznaun Valley - Tyrol's feast for the eyes

No matter which direction you look when you’re at the Paznaun: the view of the stunning scenery takes your breath away. There are the impressive mountain ranges to the left and to the right of the valley. The snow-covered mountain summits that convey a feeling of freedom. Picturesque mountain pastures and huts whose hosts greet holiday guests with their typical heart-felt hospitality and spoil them with the best delicacies of the region. And finally, there are plenty of activity highlights that excite guests in both summer and winter.

It’s obvious: we’re talking about the Paznaun valley! The 40 kilometres long valley is lovingly called the “Paznaun” by locals. In the South, it’s delimitated by the Samnaun and Silvretta mountain ranges and, in the North, by the summits of the Verwall range.

Diverse, more diverse, the Paznaun

You’re looking for a place that offers everything you want from a great holiday? In winter, that’s hundreds of kilometres of slopes, rustic mountain huts and a feeling of being welcomed? In summer, that’s an active region where you can do everything that a perfect mountain and valley holiday entails? From mountain biking to hiking to adrenaline-rich activities like paragliding? Then the Paznaun is the place to be!

Why travel to far-away places, when paradise is only a stone’s throw away? When it comes to the Paznaun with its four towns of Ischgl, Galtür, Kappl and See, that’s very true: thanks to its sunny and rather dry climate, the narrow valley offers perfect weather conditions for excursions almost every single day during the warmer months.

The Paznaun in winter

If you visit the Paznaun during the colder months, you can look forward to guaranteed snow and a total of four ski resorts: the Silvretta Arena in Ischgl as well as the little but mighty ski resorts of Galtür, Kappl and See. All offer everything a holiday guest’s heart desires – on and off the slopes: from an extensive programme of activities to plenty of wellness and spa options and gourmet experiences.
