Bregenz – more than just a lakeside city

In Bregenz locals and visitors alike enjoy the interaction of its many contrasting features:  on one side is Lake Constance, on the other the mountains; on the one hand the relaxed pace of a small town with 29,000 inhabitants, on the other a lively world class cultural programme. It is this mixture, this special flair, which typifies Vorarlberg’s provincial capital. Its superlative views and great backdrop – and not only on the floating stage! – makes you want to get out and do things: cycling, walking, bathing, taking a boat trip, retail therapy, going to concerts, museums, galleries, etc. Our lakeside town has so much to offer!
