Visiting the Jagdgasthaus Egender

With his wife and daughter, Hubert Egender runs the Jagdgasthaus Egender that also provides overnight accommodation.

It’s quiet in the snowy alpine settlement of Schönenbach. The only thing to be heard is the almost silent snowfall. But it’s still lively in the Jagdgasthaus Egender: guests spoon creamy cheese spätzle out of wooden bowls that are called ‘Gebse’ in Vorarlberg.

The beauty of our culinary winter hikes is the shift between the silence of winter and the cheerful conviviality of dining indoors.

Hubert Egender

The Jagdgasthaus, which sources the cheese for its spätzle directly from the local alpine dairy, is the second stop on the culinary winter hike from Sibratsgfäll to Schönenbach, after the Hirschen restaurant and hotel. Visitors out on the hike are able to enjoy nature and sample the specialities to be found in Vorarlberg on their travels. The tour is not guided, guests simply buy vouchers for the tour in the Bregenzerwald Tourism office.

The morning starts with a hearty breakfast at the ‘Der Hirschen’ guesthouse.

From here, a winter hiking path is almost flat all the way to Schönenbach, which is one of the loveliest and biggest mountain pasture settlements in the Bregenzerwald.

The tour ends with cheese spätzle at the ‘Jagdgasthaus Egender’.

Finish off your day's hiking with a selection of sweet Austrian treats at Hotel-Gasthof Hirschen.

      Description

      If you take the bus, you must first take the road or follow the flattened winter hiking path down to the car park in Krähenberg (approx. 30 minutes). From the Krähenberg car park, the road descends steeply to Bilgeri’s snack bar in Krähenberg. The flattened winter path starts here (keep on the cross-country ski run). Crossing a narrow gorge with impressive views down to the Subersach is a lovely experience.…
