    Hike from the Bödele into the valley on wide-tracked winter paths.

    From the bus stop on the Bödele (1,140 m), take a short walk along the road to Schwarzenberg where you pick up the winter hiking path. Cross the pistes of the Hochälpele lift, hike through alpine forests to the Hochälpele alp (1,250 m, extensive views across the Bregenzerwald) and continue to Lustenau hut (1,250 m, chance to take a detour to the Bregenz hut). From Lustenau hut, take a scenic path across the Klausberg mountain pasture down into Schwarzenberg (695 m).

    Culture on the route:It was on the Bödele, close to Losen pass, an ancient crossing into the Rhine Valley, that Otto Hämmerle, an industrialist from Dornbirn, erected a countryside summer resort. After the Arlberg, the Bödele is the second birthplace of Vorarlberg skiing (in 1903/1904 a ski jump was built, and the first ski race was held. In 1907, the first ski lift in the world was built here).A drink/food:Bödele hotel Berghof Fetz, Lustenau hut, Bregenz hut, Schwarzenberg
