Schröcken.

Extensive hill-top sight with an impressive mountain backdrop.

In terms of its landscape, Schröcken can be characterised as exceptionally diverse. Schröcken is a scattered settlement, split into 9 parcels of land (= districts), with people residing on hillsides and plateaus, with widely scattered hamlets. The district extends from the town of Unterboden at 1150 metres up to Körbersee, a natural gem, at 1660 metres altitude.

Schröcken nestles amid lush Alpine meadows and shady mountain woodlands, surrounded by steep flanks, in an impressive valley basin which is encircled by the Juppenspitze, Mohnenfluh, the distinctive Braunarlspitze, the Hochberg, the Rothorn, the Hochkünzelspitze and the Höferspitze.

The town’s name goes back to the rugged mountain landscape (Middle High German ‘schrecken’ for ‘burst’, ‘fissure’), whereby until 1640 the description ‘Giersboden’- in Walser ‘Gir’ for bird of prey predominated.

The accommodation available in Schröcken ranges from cosy and comfortable holiday apartments, to bed and breakfast establishments and hotels providing half-board, to superbly equipped chalets.

The extension of the Hochtannbergstraße in 1954 was another milestone in the development of tourism.
