    Insights into farming in the Bregenzerwald are afforded by the 14 stations on the “Alpgang” thematic trail. For economical reasons and in order to maintain the mountain’s sensitive nature, farmers in the Bregenzerwald have been farming their fields in several stages for hundreds of year. In the early summer alpine dairymen and their cows leave the valley and head for the mountain. They spend the summer on the high mountain pasture, and return to the mountain pasture in the autuum, and finally back to the valley. Texts on life in the alps and the cultivated landscape are to be found in stones.

    Chances to stop off for a drink/food: Alpe Sattelegg (from mid-June to early September)
