entry to Montafon valley

If you are coming from the Autobahn A14/E60 using the exit 61 Bludenz/Montafon, or directly from Bludenz by using the old less used L190 road from Feldkirch, you will hit this traffic sign. It’s exactly behind the bridge and informs about the road conditions of the Silvretta High Alps road. When we have taken that picture end of September 2005, we travelled in that region just after the big rainfalls that have washed away several villages and roads in Austria and Switzerland. Therefore on this sign the Silvretta was a one way road, since the road down to Galtur had been washed away by the rain.

toll station in Partenen

When you have passed Montafon valley, you reach the small village Partenen. Short after the village is the toll station to enter the private road. Toll fees can be found on the pass main page of this website and are normally updated every year. Important! Don’t forget for the panorama map and the flyer. Both are part of the package you pay with the toll fee.

view back to Partenen

If you have passed the lower part just after the toll station, the road ends up in a forest and winds up through many curves to that plateau you see on the picture. The picture was taken 4 zikzaks below the Vermunt dam.
