The mountain pass road between the federal states of Vorarlberg and Tyrol is an experience in itself. Because where else do you get to enjoy hairpin bend after hairpin bend amidst some of the most impressive summits? And the challenging route is completely free of potholes, too! But to make your excursion even more perfect, there are a few amazing things you should do while you’re there. 

The Silvretta reservoir 

The reservoir is located at the highest point of the High Alpine Road: the Bielerhöhe. Since its construction in 1954, it generates electricity for the region. You can casually walk around the lake or stop to fish there. 

A stop at the Bielerhöhe

Right at the Silvretta Reservoir, there you can find a restaurant of the same name and the "Berggasthof Piz Buin". That’s where you can enjoy a little break at 2,000 metres above sea level and enjoy delicious Austrian cuisine along with stunning mountain views of the Silvretta. 

Alternatively, you can also taste your way down into the valley to Galtür or Ischgl at the many restaurants and inns. 

A night in the mountains of the Paznaun

How about a stop during your motorcycle tour, so you can start the next day well-rested and with lots of energy for your exploration of the High Alpine Road? There are plenty of accommodations that’ll welcome you.
