Vibrantly provincial in charming natural surroundings. With the cities of Bregenz, Dornbirn, Hohenems and Feldkirch, the Lake Constance-Vorarlberg region is renowned for its cultural festivals. There is so much to admire: numerous surprisingly modern buildings, attractive museums and exhibitions and fascinating views from the easily-accessible peaks. Bon vivants enjoy the much-appreciated and distinctly regional cuisine.
