  • 2To start with, let us introduce you to the Bregenzerwald. Around 30,000 people live here, in 22 villages in total. The Bregenzerwald locals Wlder as they are known are confident, independent people, proud of their roots yet receptive to new things too.

    You will notice the successful, courageous blend of the traditional and the modern when you look at the architecture and experience the craftsmanship. Both disciplines are closely interwoven, and are a symbol of that which the locals of the Bregenzerwald are experts in: appreciation of art, of beauty, the creation of pleasure, both well thought-out and practical. This interplay is both visible and perceptible in many places.

    SensitiveMany of the hotels, guest houses and farms combine the old with the new, or have been completely rebuilt with sensitivity in recent years. Wood plays an essential part in all this. In the well-tended inns and restaurants, the chefs are masters of peppingup regional specialities, making them into magnificent creations. Most of the produce used comes from local farms. They are all small farms, and are managed carefully and imaginatively by families. The best-known Bregenzer wald speciality is cheese, especially the tasty alpine cheese. The informative stations and delight ful events of the KseStrasse Bregenzerwald impart impressions of cheese culture.

    Inspired For a rural region, the cultural calen-dar in the Bregenzerwald is anything but provincial! The major festival in the region is the Schubertiade Schwarzenberg. Many guests com-bine visits to the Bregenz Festival known for its spectacular opera performances on the lake stage with holidays in the Bregenzerwald.

    Soothing The Bregenzerwald landscapesare balsam for the eye and thesoul. A shapely combination of gently undulating hills, expansive plate aux, romantic river valleys and impressive peaks ideal for active people and lovers of nature. The farmers are largely responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the cultivated landscape. Typical of the Bregenzerwald is the three-layer cultivation of the fields: (valley mountain pasture high mountain pasture).

    Travelling the Bregenzerwald always means having to overcome dizzy heights to start with: from Bregenz you take the Pfnder, from the Rhine Valley the valley side which ascends 500 m, from the north you take the Sulzbergstock, from the east the Ried-berg or Hochtannberg pass, from the south the Furkajoch or Faschinajoch.

    Up and over is the way to go the most impressive views are from the north and the west and a space is revealed which, in all its diversity, is completely different to all that surrounds it, with the Bregenzerache uniting it all. Your route takes you through gorges and flat hollows wide between the hills of the foothills of the Alps around Alberschwende and Lin
