Introducing Bregenz

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 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, 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.
