Bodensee-Vorarlberg

Panoramic view of the bay of Bregenz at Lake Constance

Exciting. Inspiring. Lake Constance-Vorarlberg!

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.

TIPPS!
Der Winter in Vorarlberg beginnt...
Endlich wieder durch den Schnee schwingen, über Loipen gleiten, auf verschneiten Wegen wandern. Im November/Dezember eröffnen die Skigebiete die Saison. In den Städten und in einigen Dörfern in Vorarlberg laden zu jener Zeit Adventmärkte zum stimmungsvollen Bummeln, begleitet vom Duft nach Lebkuchen und Punsch.
  Tipps für den Saisonbeginn und vorweihnachtliche Unternehmungen gibt’s hier
