If you would like to ride from the Bregenzerwald over to the Walgau county to Bludenz, there is beside the Furkajoch pass, which is without question the more beautiful way to go, the alternative to ride across the Faschinajoch pass. While the Furkajoch ends north in Rankweil, you can reach Bludenz across the Faschinajoch pass directly. The pass road starts in the Bregenzerwald in a small mountain village named Au and follows the small Argenbach canyon up to Damuls, where the road splits up into two branches. The left one brings you up through an avalanche tunnel to the Faschinajoch, the right one up to the Furkajoch. You mainly choose the way across the Faschinajoch, if you are on a day tour to the Silvretta or on the way down to South Tyrol.

The Faschinajoch itself is a well-known skiing area and from here you have an outstanding view towards the North and the wonderful Damulser Mittagspitze mountain (2.095m). Across the pass summit the road continues down to the Grosse Walstertal valley and then to Bludenz.

Compared to the pass road on the west side of the Furkajoch, the pass road on the southwest side of the Faschinajoch is in the same excellent condition and on the same level of surface quality as the road up from Au to Damuls. If a motorbike day tour is planned to the Silvretta High Alps Road, then the way across the Faschinajoch is definitely the better alternative to the Furkajoch. The well-known motorbike meeting point is however on the Furkajoch. Motorbike meetings are rare on the Faschinajoch, since it’s not so beautiful.
