A true delight for the senses.
Nestled within the western part of Austria, this mountainous state is the quintessential alpine getaway. Neighbouring Germany, Liechtenstein and Switzerland, Vorarlberg welcomes its visitors all year round with great ski resorts, a network of spectacular hiking trails and picture-perfect mountainous scenery. Think sweeping vistas over the ever-so-stunning pastures, valleys, lush greenery and one of Europe’s most scenic lakes, the enchanting Lake Constance (also known as the Bodensee) – a magnificent 63km-long lake bordering Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Escape to the charming capital, Bregenz, and delve into the gorgeous scenery and astonishing architecture. Visit the city’s modern Kunsthaus for a delightful show of contemporary art, and discover the history and culture of this elegant region in the Vorarlberg Museum. Be sure to hop onto the cable car that takes you up to the famous Mt. Pfänder to take in the picturesque views over the city!
Another incredible element of Vorarlberg is its delicious cuisine. Influenced by its neighbouring countries, typical traditional dishes from this charming region include its Käsespätzle (the macaroni and cheese of Austria – made from flour and egg noodles topped with cheese and onion), the Flädlesuppe (a dish derived from savoury pancakes, in a broth), and the tasty traditional German pastry of Apfelküachle (sliced apples covered in batter, then baked or deep fried till golden brown).
Hosted on an incredibly designed floating stage, be sure not to miss he annual Bregenz Festival in July and August! Having been a magnet for music lovers for years, enjoy some spectacular opera shows against the magnificent sunset over Bodensee lake.
