Walking and climbing

Ten wildlife reserves and areas of outstanding natural beauty are crisscrossed by a 2,000 kilometre network of uniformly marked walking tracks, giving access to dramatic viewpoints and expanses of magical natural scenery.

A balm for the senses

The Bregenzerwald is the perfect place for climbing and mountain bike tours. There's a whole wonderful new world here, just waiting to be explored.

Walking tracks in the Bregenzerwald

The Bregenzerwald Tourist Office website offers information about a wide selection of marked walking tracks.

The choice is vast

To make life easier, all walking tracks in Vorarlberg are uniformly marked and signposted.

It's easy to assess the difficulty rating of a particular path, just by looking at the colour of the markings:

  • Yellow/white markings mean very easy footpaths and gentle walking tracks
  • Red/white markings indicate mountain walking tracks
  • White/blue/white markings refer to alpine hiking trails, where sure-footedness and a good head for heights are required.
