Bundesland Vorarlberg Things to Do: 2 reviews and 2 photos
A very attractive piece of landscape is the Bodensee (Lake Constance) of which the Bregenzer Bucht, the bay between the Rhine delta and Lindau, belongs to Vorarlberg. And this positionin the Lake Constance area at the three countries corner of Germany, Switzerland and Austria at the upper Rhine means that this part of Austria belongs to a very interesting cultural area very different from the „Danube-Austria“ with its strong links to the Eastern Europe or the „Alpine Austria“ behind the Arlberg (felt by the „Gsibergers“ to be a „Hinterarlberg“) which is both an obstacle and a bridge between the North and South-Southeast of Europe. Here in Vorarlberg the eyes are clearly directed to the West, to Switzerland and the puritanic South-West of Germany. Zürich, Strassburg and Paris are closer than Salzburg, Graz and Vienna.
