Top Reasons to Go to Vorarlberg
Bernstein in Bregenz. With Swiss mountains on your left, Bregenz behind you, Bavaria to your right, the sun setting over Lake Constance, and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra striking up the overture of West Side Story on the world's biggest floating stage—this is an unparalled place to see an opera or a musical.
See four countries at once. Take the cable car up Pfänder, the mountain behind Bregenz; the views are incredible.
Dine in a 500-year-old restaurant. In the days of Christopher Columbus the first guests enjoyed Montafon cooking and a good beer at the Löwen in Tschagguns, in the Montafon valley. Today it's a historic house, yet the opposite of a museum—a welcoming Gasthaus with very good food.
Lech. The village of Lech welcome more than 8,000 overnight visitors around Christmas and New Year but it's still a lovely, authentic Austrian Alpine village; Zürs may be higher up the mountains, we think Lech wins any competition with its authentic charm.
Experience top hospitality in a top village. The Gasthof Post is a bit like Lech itself—full of charming understatement. Teatime in overstuffed armchairs for all house guests will prepare you for a delicious dinner. You'll never want to leave.
