A favoured resort of Hemingway that features in his writings, Schruns is the main village of the Montafon valley in Austria's most westernmost and isolated province, Voralberg. Historically the people of the Voralberg have associated themselves more with their Western neighbours, the Swiss, and access from Switzerland via Bludenz is relatively easy. Schruns lies at the foot of the intermediate slopes of the Hochjoch ski area, but there are over 160km of additional pistes to enjoy in other parts of the valley too, the best and most varied being at Silvretta Nova - which also has an impressive park.

Schruns Bahnhof is 20 minutes from Bludenz (which is as little as 2 hours on the fast trains to Zürich or Innsbruck). The Hochjochbahn valley station is only a couple of hundred metres from the station, and there is also a comprehensive range of ski buses connecting all of the valley stations throughout the Montafon area with Schruns.

Getting to Schruns by Train

The best destination to access the downhill slopes by public transport in this ski area is Zweisimmen. Station adjacent to Gondola (left out of station). Note that the lift pass is good for all lifts in Gstaad Mountain Rides and on all local buses and the railway as far as Rossinière. Stations at Saanenmöser, Schönried, Saanen, Rougement and Château-d'Oex are all a few minutes walk from valley stations.
