The Silvretta is a mountain range of the Central Eastern Alps shared by Tirolmarker, Vorarlbergmarker (both in Austriamarker) and Graubündenmarker (Switzerlandmarker). The Austrian states of Tirol and Vorarlberg are connected by a pass road (Silvretta Hochalpenstraße at 2032 m). The majority of the peaks are elevated above three thousand metres and are surrounded by glaciers. Thus, the area is also known as the "Blue Silvretta".


According to the Alpine Clubs, the Silvretta is distinguished from other groups by the following borders:St. Gallenkirch - Ill rivermarker as far as Partenen - Zeinisjoch - Zeinisbach - Paznauntalmarker as far as Ischglmarker - Fimbertal - Fimber Pass - Val Chöglias - Val Sinestra - Inn Rivermarker from the mouth of the Branclabach to the mouth of the Susasca - Val Susasca - Flüela Passmarker - Davosmarker - Wolfgang - Laretbach - Klostersmarker - Schlappinbach - Schlappiner Joch - Valzifensbach - Gargellental - St. Gallenkirch

The Silvretta is surrounded by the Rätikonmarker, Verwall and Samnaun ranges.

The Piz Buin is not the highest, but the most popular peak of the range. It can relatively easily be ascended from north or south through glaciers and stretches of easily climbing.

The Silvretta is famous for its skiing especially its many backcountry skiing possibilities. In the 1920s Ernest Hemingway was staying in the region for a winter (he lived at Schrunsmarker in Montafonmarker, Austriamarker. Later, he wrote a couple of short stories about his skiing experiences in the Silvretta. Some of these short stories are to be found in A moveable feast.
