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.
Digital hiking maps
Practical aids are available for planning hikes as well as on-site orientation. The digital hiking maps Vorarlberg (see useful links below) describe the countless trails in detail. Information on all the described routes can be printed and downloaded. In addition, it’s possible to display information about attractions, restaurants or refreshment stops or even photos and bus stops. This information is also available as part of the free Vorarlberg App “Holiday and Recreation” in German only!
