Sightseeing

There's a lot to see in Bregenz. To mention just a few highlights, the Festival Hall with its "floating" stage, Bregenz Art Gallery(KUB), the high town with Martin's tower, the imposing Heart of Jesus church and, naturally, the fabulous lakeside promenade are definitely not to be missed.

If you are interested in the town's history, head for the Vorarlberg Museum, which offers all manner of fascinating information about the oldest town on Lake Constance.  Afterwards walk through the town to compare notes, and see if you can spot one or two familiar buildings. It's great to see how the old and the new blend seamlessly together to create a wonderfully harmonious architectural whole.

Nowadays the famous Bregenz Festival is also an integral part of the city's history. Started in 1946, the Festival draws thousands of visitors each year to the city, many from Germany, Switzerland and Austria. The Bregenz "floating" stage provides a unique combination of culture and lakeside magic.
