A panoramic high seat with boundless charm.

Warth am Arlberg is nestled idyllically at 1,500 meters above sea level, surrounded by an impressive mountain panorama.

As the highest municipality in Vorarlberg, Warth impresses with its 1,500 meters of altitude. The Walser village character of the former mountain farming village, settled by the Walser people from Switzerland in the 14th century, shapes the place both in summer and winter.

With the construction of the first ski lifts in the mid-1960s and the expansion of the federal roads, tourism experienced a continuous upswing, which continues to this day. Despite this development, the original character of the Walser village has been preserved.

Together, Warth and Hochkrumbach have a total of 168 residents year-round.

The top hotel industry, the charming atmosphere of the private landlords, and the quaint, cozy bars make Warth a popular holiday destination for all age groups.
