The municipality of Schröcken is located in the westernmost province of Austria, Vorarlberg, in the district of Bregenz. Geographically, Schröcken belongs to the Bregenzerwald due to its location in the farthest part of the valley of the Bregenzer Arche, but for tourism Schröcken is still counted as part of the Arlberg area.
In summer Schröcken lies in the midst of lush alpine pastures and shady mountain forests, surrounded by steep flanks in a picturesque valley basin, which is surrounded by the surrounding mountains, such as the Rothorn.
The pioneer Alfons Strolz, had the first T-bar lift built in Schröcken under his own direction in 1953. In 1964 he was the founder of the Schröcken ski lifts.
Today, the small community is home to 220 year-round residents, most of whom participate in one of the many clubs.
Due to the well-developed bus service, the ski lifts can be reached in a few minutes from Schröcken and the village slopes lead almost directly to the front doors.
