Up till the 1950s there was a road from Mühlbach to Vals at 1,354 m above sea level. The village grew slowly. Undisturbed countryside and the unique landscape of the alpine pastures remain to this day. The village, with a population of around 600, is embedded in the gently rising meadows and pastures, surrounded by pine forests and hilltops. Discover our nature on your mountain holiday! The valley of the Gitschberg is more or less closed to through traffic and as such is a paradise for mountain bikers, hikers, cross-country skiers, downhill skiers and snowshoe trekkers.
From Hotel SILENA you are on the doorstep of your activity holiday at the valley station of the Jochtal-Bahn which brings you to the ski region Gitschberg Jochtal. Or you can just walk in the direction of the end of the valley, choosing one of numerous hiking routes or mountain bike trails. You can of course go your own way on your mountain holiday or you can also join one of our daily excursions. Mountain bikes and fatbikes are available free of charge at your SILENA Hotel on Gitschberg.
Your nature holiday can be enjoyed in all seasons of the year because of our sunny valley location. In winter you start off on your cross-country ski track right outside your four star Superior Design Hotel. You can try out a fatbike or stomp through the enchanted snowy landscapes on snow shoes.
Get rid of your energy in CrossFit training, or let us bring you back again on a breath-walk across the upland moor.
