Top nature and culture tips

In Vorarlberg, a great variety of nature is at your fingertips in a relatively small space. The region boasts over 700 mountain peaks, 3,933 rivers and streams and around 97,000 hectares of forest. In addition, Vorarlberg is an art-loving state in which courageous, innovative projects are realised time and again.

The 5 Top Nature Tips
  • One-of-a-kind: The view over Lake Constance from the scenic Pfänder (Bregenz) or Karren (Dornbirn) mountains. Both mountains are easily accessible by cable car.
  • Romantic: The sunset at Lake Constance. There are so many readily accessible places to enjoy the spectacle
  • Invigorating: Swimming in Lake Constance or in one of the idyllically situated open-air pools (german only).
  • Refreshing: A hike through the Rappenlochschlucht gorge near Dornbirn one of the most impressive gorges in the Eastern Alps
  • Informative: A visit to the interactive inatura nature show in Dornbirn
