Austria, Austrian Tyrol
Just 10 km from its slightly bigger sister village of Ischgl, charming Galtür lies at an altitude of 1,584 metres in the upper Paznaun Valley. With a resident population of less than 1,000, this is a tranquil place with a handful of shops and cafés and a supermarket 500 metres from the village square. The area has invigorating mountain air and lush grazing pastures, and is part of a magnificent walking area of 300km of marked trails, and the excellent cable-car and chairlift network make it possible to access the furthest points of the valley before returning home every day. The free Silvretta Card is excellent value for getting around.
September (16-30) is when the villages in the Tyrol celebrate the annual ‘Almabtrieb’. The festival celebrates the end of the summer when the cows are led down the mountain to their stables for the winter. Cowbells echo through the valley as hundreds of cows pass by, all highly decorated in traditional costume. You’ll be welcome to join in the festivities!
