Up till the 1950s there was a road from Mühlbach to Vals at 1,354 m above sea level. The village grew slowly. The undisturbed countryside and the unique landscape of the alpine pastures remain the same even to this day. The village, with a population of around 600 people, 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-going traffic and as such, a paradise for mountain bikers, hikers, cross-country skiers, downhill skiers and snowshoe trekkers.
From the SILENA hotel you are on the doorstep of your activity holiday at the valley station of the Jochtal-Bahn, which brings you directly to the ski region Gitschberg Jochtal. Or, you can just walk in the direction towards the end of the valley, choosing one of the numerous hiking routes or mountain bike trails. You can of course choose your own route on your mountain holiday or you can also join one of our daily mountain hiking excursions. Mountain bikes and fatbikes are available free of charge in your SILENA Hotel.
Your nature holiday can be enjoyed in all the seasons of the year because of our sunny valley location. In the winter you start the day off on your cross-country ski track right outside the SILENA. You can try out a fatbike or stomp through the enchanted snowy landscapes in snow shoes.
Get rid of your energy in one of our CrossFit training, or let us help you relax even more on a breath-walk across the upland moor.
