Bregenz General Information
As the western-most state in Austria, Vorarlberg has a cultural vibe that strays much more in the direction of Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Alsace and Swabia Germany. Walk through the handsome streets of Vorarlberg capital Bregenz in fact and you will hear not Austro-Bavarian but a distinct Walser Alemannic dialect. If singular charm is your bag, Bregenz is the place.
A tidy community of 30,000 people, the heart and gateway of Vorarlberg is a pre-eminent tourist magnet in Austria. Bregenz has two bedrock points of interest in Lake Constance and Pfänder mountain and indeed, both provide enough reason to pay the town a visit. Bodensee, the German place-name for Lake Constance, is a remarkable waterway at the foot of the Alps that marks the confluence of Germany, Switzerland and Austria. While a number of towns dot the shoreline, Bregenz is surely one of the most attractive. The vast summit of the Pfänder has a lot to do with that tag, as it offers spectacular panoramas of the distant Alps and on a clear day, foothills of the Black Forest. Attractions to consider within Bregenz include heritage landmarks like the Kunsthaus, Martinsturm, Strandbad and Feistspielhaus. The Upper Town of Bregenz contains architecture from the 13th century and for a memorable stroll, the promenade that lines Lake Constance is a must.
