Overview


Located on the Swiss-Autrian border, Sulzfluh is an important summit of the Rätikon Mountains, part of the northern Limestone Alps, is easy to climb and provides a beautiful view from the top.

The mountain range of the Rätikon is enframed by the Rhine in the West, the Ill in the North and the Silvretta in the East. The southern border is formed by the Landquart, which is already in Switzerland. Many people will be disappointed, that none of the Rätikon's peaks reaches the 3000m and only one small glacier, the Brandner Gletscher, exists in this area. But these circumstances might turn out to be big advantages for the hiker: almost every mountain and also the Sulzfluh can easily be reached without crampons and/or ice axe. So the Sulzfluh is the ideal region for alpine tours and climbs even for the beginner.

Sulzfluh is the east neighbour of the fantastic Drusentürme called also Drei Türme, a jewel of the Alps. The summit dominates the Gauertal (Montafon, Autria) in the north and the valley of Sankt Antönien in the south (Prättigau, Switzerland).

I stayed the last two nights in Berghaus Alpenrösli at Partnun, that is a good basis for the south routes to Sulzfluh
