Bregenz Forest – for pleasurable hiking and skiing
Ever heard of the Bregenz Forest Cheese Road? It’s famous for the excellent cheeses that visitors there can sample. And there are plenty of varied hiking and topical trails to burn the calories afterwards. For instance the Alpgang in Au-Schoppernau and the Goassarweag (Geissenweg) in Bizau. A practical extra: the free Bregenz Forest Guest Card (from 3 nights’ stay) is valid on mountain railways, buses and in swimming pools from May to October. Visitors in winter zip down the slopes, take ski tours or go on hikes through the snow. Do you enjoy classical music? If so, you will love the Schubertiade Festival in Schwarzenberg.
