Mountain Experience Vorarlberg: The region between Lake Constance and the mountains up to 3,000 metres high is richly blessed with natural beauty. The landscapes can be explored by hiking or cycling, on boat trips on Lake Constance, on outdoor adventures. Or simply by looking. There are a large number of viewing points, some of which can be reached comfortably with mountain railways.
Meadows and forests, plains and high mountains: Vorarlberg’s multi-faceted landscapes inspire exploration. In order to preserve this precious natural treasure, landscape protection is a high priority. The initiative “Naturvielfalt Vorarlberg” (Vorarlberg Nature Diversity), which focuses primarily on the 40 Natura 2000 areas in the state, raises awareness of the need to treat nature with care.
