Bregenz Forest

Peaks & Valleys.

When people think of Vorarlberg, they usually first associate this federal state with the world-famous Lake Constance. Not without reason, of course, but this region has so much more to offer. If you are looking for relaxation and tranquillity, hospitality and delicious food, but above all unspoilt nature and vast landscapes, this is the place to be. Relax at the westernmost tip of of Austria - you will be thrilled!

Details of the tour through the Bregenzerwald

Explore the delightful Sulzbach with its ornate churches and chapels. A lime tree over 400 years old, including a statue of the Virgin Mary, lets your gaze wander back in time. The flora and fauna of the Wildrosenmoos are just as fascinating as the Trogen moors. A forest nature trail awaits you on the Rotenberg, which offers interesting insights into one of the smallest structured forests in Austria - it has around 170 owners.

From the Stangstattkopf, which is just over 1,000 metres high, you will reach the "Hennenbergvorsäss" high moor. Direct your gaze to the fascinating flora before you can enjoy the magnificent view of Lake Constance from the Niederalpe on day 5. On the last stage, not only a spectacular view awaits you at the Weißenfluhalpe, but also a rustic mountain hut. Taste your way through the homemade, regional specialities of the warm hosts before the final descent to Bezau.

Highlights of the 7-day hiking tour

  • The Trogen moors: Since 1999, the area of just under 46 hectares has been placed under nature conservation. Parts of the moor have been re-naturalised over time to preserve the rare flora and fauna.
  • Enchanting villages full of Vorarlberg customs: Lingenau, Andelsbuch and Bezau not only serve as places to stay during the tour, they are picturesque gems in the Bregenzerwald. Characterised by handicrafts and agriculture, tradition is important here, and the warmth of the inhabitants contributes to their popularity with visitors.
  • The untouched nature of the region: On the way through the Hausbachklamm gorge, you could easily forget civilisation at some points, so pristine is this area. By the way, those who get a permit at the tourist information office are allowed to use the barbecue area.
  • Spectacular panoramas await you at many points on this tour. The Baumgarten Panorama Trail near Bezau is particularly noteworthy here. By the way, the particularly brave can go paragliding at the local flying school. But the trail also offers great views of Lake Constance, the Alps to the Allgäu and sometimes even to Ulm Cathedral.

Eine sehr schöne, abwechslungsreiche Wanderung
Wir, drei Personen zwischen 55 und 70 Jahren, erlebten eine interessante Wanderung. Leider spielte das Wetter nur zum Teil gut mit.
