Bregenz, capital of the Vorarlberg, combines art enjoyment, hospitality, zest for life and a unique symbiosis between the lake and the mountains like no other city. The city is characterised by its natural beauty, the rich and varied artistic attractions, the charming atmosphere and the extensive range of experiences on offer. Nowhere else on Lake Constance do history and modernity come together quite so harmoniously as in Bregenz. Architecture, pleasure and the art of living are all familiar features of the region.
With the broad spectrum of art, architecture, culture and nature activities, modernity and tradition combine in a unique manner. Bregenz stands for popular values, Bregenz is urbane and, together with its inhabitants, is open to the world and its guests. Bregenz is a city of encounters. The streets of the city centre encourage visitors to linger in the wonderful restaurants and cafés. Since 2013, the heart of Bregenz is once again the Kornmarktplatz, the centre of social life. An urban space with a modern design which fits in with the contemporary architectural landscape.
Renowned for the annual Bregenzer Festspiele which presents spectacular musical works on the world's largest floating stage, this cultural city serves up a wide range of art and cultural events. From the Bregenzer Stadtfest and the Bregenzer Jazz Festival to the Erlebnisstadt, cultural life is actively designed, experienced and shaped.
Cultural life is complemented by a breathtakingly impressive landscape between the Pfänder, Bregenz's emblematic mountain, and Lake Constance.
