Getting Here & Mobility

Location & Mobility

The two lovely villages of Damuels and Fontanella-Faschina are located right at the center of Vorarlberg, Austria's westernmost province. They are easily accessible via Bregenzerwald or Großes Walsertal throughout the seasons. In summer Damuels can be also reached on the Furkajoch pass road (from Rheintal valley).

Do you need some snow chains?
Please note, that sometimes snow chains are required for getting here in winter! In Austria winter tires are an absolute must (in case of wintry road conditions) between 01 November and 15. April.

Toll sticker for the highway
If you travel on Austrian motorways or highways you need a Vignette toll sticker for your car/motorbike. The toll sticker is available either for 10 days, 2 months or a whole year. Please purchase the Vignette already before entering the Austrian territory at petrol stations or kiosks in the border area.

Travelling by Car
