Countlesshiking trails are spread throughout Vorarlberg and range from easy to challenging. Many such trails provide insight into the local way of life or lead to spectacular natural features. Interesting information about the province and its people, as well as the flora and the fauna can be discovered during guided hikes. For those interested in letting nature work its magic, we recommend exploring on foot.
Natural diversity in Vorarlberg
Though compact, Vorarlberg is a region of astounding natural diversity, from moors to shorelines and the high mountains. For all those who love to be outdoors in nature, the State of Vorarlberg has initiated the campaign “Natural diversity in Vorarlberg” to ensure that the variety of nature is conserved for future generations. This campaign is a coalition of like-minded stakeholders with similar values that stands for integrated nature conservation with a focus on the 40 Natura 2000 protected areas. Natura 2000 is a network of nature protection areas in the territory of the European Union.
Uniform hiking trail concept throughout Vorarlberg
Throughout Vorarlberg, the approximately 6,000 km of hiking trails are uniformly signposted. The hiking trails are divided into three levels of difficulty, the signposts include the most important main and intermediate destinations with tides – this facilitates orientation immensely and makes hiking comfortable and safe.
