The Kaltenberg is a 2896 m high mountain in the Verwall group in Austria. It lies on the border between the federal states of Tyrol and Vorarlberg . According to the ÖK, the 2896 m refer to the east summit, on which the summit cross is also located. The west summit about 50 m away is slightly higher at 2900 m.

The Kaltenberg is located southwest of the Arlberg in the western Verwall group. South of the Kaltenberg are the Pflunspitzen , which are slightly higher at 2912 m . The Kaltenberg Glacier is located on the northern flank of the mountain. Between the tongue of the glacier and the Kracheljoch is the Kaltenbergsee ( 2506 m above sea levelTemplate: height / unknown reference ), which drains into the Maroital and thus into the Rosanna .

The Kaltenberg, also called Maroi Schneeberg after an old name , is best reached via the Kaltenberghütte (2089 m) from Stuben , Langen or St. Christoph . From the hut it goes over the Kracheljoch and with an intermediate descent to the Kaltenberg glacier, finally over a channel secured with a rope to the summit. An alternative to the glacier is the ascent over the north ridge (first grade points ).

Further climbs in summer are the south-west ridge (places II. Degree) from the Neue Reutlinger Hütte (2395 m) and the south-east ridge (difficulty level II) from the Konstanzer hut (1688 m).

In winter, the Kaltenberg is a popular ski tour destination . The starting point for this is the Albonagrat , which can be reached from Stuben by lift. The summit can also be reached from the Kaltenberghütte on touring skis over the Kracheljoch.
