    15.06.2015 - 26.10.2016: Hittisau, Frauenmuseum

    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.

    Silvretta Classic Rallye Montafon

    The idyllic roads of the Montafon and Vorarlberg provide the backdrop for a competition that is not about top speed, but about maximum precision. That’s why the oldest vehicles in the field – whether a Bentley or Duesenberg, mostly from the 1920s – have the same chance as the younger vehicles built up to model year 1992.
