Bregenz Things to Do: 64 reviews and 150 photos


Go up the Pfander mountain. It is 1064m high and a cable car will take you to the top for 5.5E. I was a bit disappointed with the view from the top; it was spectacular but marred by the cable car supports. What is worth doing is walking back down the hill. This is possible in about 1.5hours, though I took a much more leisurely route - caused by getting lost and breaks to sit in the sunshine!! The routes are colour coded - yellow is easy, anyone can cope, red means you need to have good shoes with grips.

The paths are well marked, however I managed to make two wrong turns, though whether this was due to the signing or me wandering along enjoying the views and the sunshine and not paying attention to where I was going is debatable!

Also at the top of the moutain was a wildlife park or sorts which has an Eagle display and one or two other bits. I didn't bother stopping but the kids there seemed to enjoy it.
Breathtaking views of the lake and the Alps.
