Rorschach to Bregenz
At the eastern end of Lake Constance (Bodensee) is Bregenz, the beautiful capital town of Vorarlberg, Austria with its peaceful promenade under shady, spreading branches taking one past perfect green lawns and colourful well-laid gardens all looking out across the clear waters towards the island of Lindau on the far side. Bregenz sits below the Pfänder mountain which is accessible by cable car and offers fantastic views over the town, the Alps, the Allgau Alpen range, the Bregenzerwald and the entire lake, evening sunsets are certainly worth making this trip for. In the centre of the Old Town is the Baroque Martinstirm (St Martin’s tower).
The harbour is a bustling place with its railway station and port and large selection of outdoor cafes and restaurants. Bregenz is the setting for the annual Bregenzer Festspiele, an opera held on a large, open-air floating stage on the edge of the lake. Read More
