Basic Information
Identifier OE_06005
Site Name Bludenz
Description The city center of Bludenz is located at about 570 meters altitude at the southwestern foot of the Lechquellengebirge, terraced above the valley floor of the Ill and on a portion of the debris fan of the "Galgentobelbach" created. The official altitude for Bludenz is 588 m. This refers to the location of the somewhat raised above the city center "Laurentius" church. The highest point of the municipality is formed by the summit of the "Weißes Rössle", 2214 m, northwest of "Ausserbraz". Parts of the mountain forests in the north of Bludenz belong to the European nature reserve "Natura 2000" which extends from Galgentobel to Klösterle. The city lies at the intersection of the valleys Walgau, Brandnertal (Rätikon), Montafon (Silvretta) and Klostertal (Arlberg). In Bludenz three archaeological sites dating in the Bronze and Iron Age could be determined. One of those is the well-known Bronze Age hilltop settlement "Montikel". A second settlement area and a funerary site from the Late Bronze Age and Early Hallstatt period could be first determined in 1937 at the so-called Kleiner Exerzierplatz. Further historic sights are e.g. the City Museum "Bludenz" in the Upper Gate ("Oberes Tor") or Castle Gayenhofen - today it houses the district headquarters Bludenz.
