Welcome to Bregenz

Bregenz is the capital of Austria’s most prosperous province. The shore of Lake Constance, one of the biggest lakes in Europe, is minutes from the small downtown. It is highly advisable to go down to the lake in the evening and check out the beautiful sunset. Inhabitants of Vorarlberg are said to be very friendly and open.

What a view! Ah yes, the locals proudly agree, Bregenz does indeed have the loveliest of views: before you the Bodensee, Europe’s third-largest lake, spreads out like a liquid mirror; behind you the Pfänder (1064m) climbs to the Alps; to the right you see Germany, to the left the faint outline of Switzerland. Just wow.
Whether contemplating avant-garde art and architecture by the new harbour, sauntering along the promenade on a summer’s evening or watching opera under the stars at the much-lauded Festspiele (festival), you can’t help but think – clichéd though it sounds – that Vorarlberg’s pocket-sized capital has got at least a taste of it all.

Bregenz has about 28,000 inhabitants and has roots back to Roman times. The city was originally founded by the Romans in 15 BC, when it was known as Brigantium.

Bregenz is located at the northern edge of the Alps, between Lake Constance (the Bodensee) and the local mountain, the Pfänder (1064m). To the southwest lies the Rhine delta, a huge valley divided between Switzerland to the east and Austria to the west. To the south lie the mountains of Switzerland and southern Vorarlberg. To the north, overlooking Lake Constance, are the alpine foothills of the Allgäu Bavaria and the quaint villages of Baden-Württemberg in Germany.
