E-bike tour Vorarlberg: From Lake Constance to Silvretta
From here to the very top!
100 kilometres The approximate length of the track that begins in Bregenz by Lake Constance at approx. 400 m elevation and leads to Gaschurn at 980 m above sea level.
For many years, the experience of cycling in the mountains was something only the very fit could enjoy. With an e-bike things have finally changed. It is now possible to travel cross-country, to ascend to higher elevations with ease. A brisk tour from Lake Constance to the foot of the Piz Buin is just one example.
The nearly 100-km-long stretch begins in Bregenz by Lake Constance at approx. 400 metres elevation and leads up towards Gaschurn at approx. 980 metres. The first section along the Rhine river, which passes through Walgau, is even suitable for families. Journey past worthwhile attractions and build in enough time for sight seeing. Enjoy the urban flair of Bregenz and Feldkirch, for example, or take time for a break and a swim in the Old Rhine river section between Lustenau and Hohenems. Those who prefer a more comfortable tour, in spite of the aid of an e-bike, can make use of the train to complete various stretches of the journey.

Those with energy and ambition to spare can complete the entire journey by e-bike in approx. eight to ten hours. Many stretches are optimal for a normal bike. Regardless of your preference, it is better to plan in a bit more time to visit some of the scenic attractions and delicious restaurants along the way.
Special tips along the way:
The Milchpilz in Bregenz, a mushroom-shaped milk stand, has been an unofficial symbol of the city since the 1950s. Nowhere else in Vorarlberg (and possibly in Austria) is there a better milkshake to be had. This is the last of its kind in Vorarlberg that fulfils its original purpose of selling dairy products.
For a quick dip in cool water, dive into the Old Rhine river between Lustenau and Hohenems.
A few years ago, scenes for the James Bond movie “Quantum of Solace” were filmed in Feldkirch’s historic Old Town. In real life, Feldkirch is a somewhat Mediterranean city in the shadow of the medieval Schattenburg castle that towers above.
