Bregenzerwald

Description

Bregenzerwald

In the extreme northwest of Austria lies the Bregenzerwald. This mountain area is part of the Vorarlberg region. The area borders on Germany, the Allgäuer Alps.

These limestone mountains provide excellent hiking and count some 2000 km well marked trails. The summits rise to 2000 meters. In general it is easy walking, suitable for people who desire a less Alpine experience than climbing in the popular and nearby Rätikon or Silvretta mountains. For this reason the Bregenzerwald is also relatively quiet. For those hikers who like to take it easy, it is pleasant to know that there are many ski lifts in operation during summertime, bringing you halfway the valley and the ridges while humming your favorite melody.

The Nordalpenweg (01) runs right through the Bregenzerwald, and coincides here with the Via Alpina and the European Long Distance Trail E4. The Voralpenweg (04) touches the north side of the Brengenzerwald.
