    Exhibition “Me, On the Summit! – The Story of a Female Alpinist”

    The women’s museum in Hittisau is the only one of its kind in Austria and makes artistic creation by women and their living environments visible in changing exhibitions. The museum is accommodated in a modern timber building in the village centre. For a long time, mountaineering was a male domain. The exhibition showcases pioneering female alpinists of the 19th and 20th centuries. At the same time, it directs attention to women who have always lived and worked in the mountains: high-alpine farming women, herdswomen, female poachers, smugglers and mountain guides.

    Montafon Folk Music Days

    The Montafon Folk Music Days have long since become an international meeting place for musicians and fans of folk music. For three days – always on the last weekend in August – the valley is given over to down-to-earth folk music. The music groups come from Austria and the surrounding countries. They play and sing in guest houses, hotels and some mountain stations of the Montafon cableways, sometimes without keeping an eye on the time.
