Welcome to Vorarlberg! Summer is the time to head outdoors! The sun and warm temperatures inspire us all to get out and about. Hiking in the fresh air of the mountains and enjoying the views, swimming in the refreshing waters of Lake Constance, comfortably tasting the regional cuisine in the outdoor dining areas under the trees, or visiting one of the numerous cultural events — there’s so much to enjoy! It’s finally time to enjoy the freedom once more as activities increasingly take place outdoors. But what is there to discover and where are the most beautiful places?
Gear up for mountain summer
Fancy a hike at pleasant temperatures in the fresh mountain air? Vorarlberg’s cable cars are in operation to transport sun-lovers above the clouds all year round. The panoramic views in the mountains are well worth the ascent.
The sun is shining, the days are long, and nature is lush and green. It’s a true joy to spend time with the family outdoors once again: For example, the ships on Lake Constance offer round trips and event cruises with entertainment programmes, the various family excursion destinations are once again looking forward to visitors, and the swimming pools and natural swimming lakes offer refreshment and fun on the water.
Summer of culture
Already seen one? In some places in Vorarlberg, especially in the cities, works of art in public spaces are truly astonishing. Such places are ideal for stimulating walks. Here there are plenty of places to linger and recharge your batteries. Meanwhile, a wide range of cultural events and exhibitions provide fresh perspectives while guided tours of towns and villages, museums and churches are true insider tips. The Bregenz Festival is also getting ready for the summer of Rigoletto opera!
Summer of enjoyment
Inns and restaurants in Vorarlberg, which are open and invite you to relax in the shady outdoor dining areas or restaurants, treat their guests to fine summer cuisine.
