Galtür

Mathon is situated between the villages of Ischgl and Galtür. While most guests know all about what Ischgl has to offer, not many people know the benefits of Galtür. Galtür is Tyrol's only officially certified climatic spa resort. In the summer people with pollen allergies like to visit it because they can exercise there more easily. This unique air quality can no doubt still be felt in Mathon, which is 5 km away.

Galtür has many attractions, such as the Alpinarium, which also hosts an exhibition about the avalanche disaster of Galtür.

 

The village also has a sports and cultural centre that includes a swimming pool, a tennis court, a squash court, a bowling alley and much more. And let's not forget the weekly entertainment that includes nighttime skiing and the stave race. A little trip to Galtür can be very entertaining.

Stave race in Galtür

A fun experience!

Stave race: every Tuesday from 8.30 p.m. at Gampele

Staves are the vertical planks of wood on a barrel. They are used for this skiing competition. Very simple straps are used to attach them. The race participants use them as skis and do a slalom race. People are bound to fall over. And the audience roars with laughter.

NIGHT-TIME SKIING

Every Wednesday from 7.30 to 10.30 p.m. in Galtür

If you are interested in a very special kind of skiing experience, you must give this a go. Nighttime skiing with the mighty Ballunspitze as a backdrop is a special kind of experience. The 2.2-kilometre ski slope has bright daylight, even in bad weather.

Alpinarium Galtür

The Alpinarium Galtür was set up after the avalanche disaster on 23 February 1999. The back wall of the building serves as an avalanche protection wall. In addition to the permanent exhibition "Ganz oben" (at the very top), the terrible catastrophe of 1999 is showcased in a very impressive way.

Carriage rides

A truly romantic holiday must include a ride in a horse-drawn sleigh. It allows you to enjoy the magnificent Silvretta scenery in entirely unexpected ways. You can book your outing in Ischgl or in Galtür.

Cross-country skiing

If you want to improve your fitness levels, we recommend cross-country skiing in the mountains. Gliding along in an even rhythm really gets you going, the fresh mountain air makes you feel great, and working off the calories this way is fun. The cross-country trail from Ischgl to Galtür is considered one of the most beautiful in the high mountain ranges.
