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.
Deep snow fans get their money’s worth in the Silvretta Montafon. The ski area has long since made a name for itself as an international top address for freeriders and wasn’t named “Austria’s Freeride Hot Spot Number 1” by SKINFO.de in 2013 for nothing.
