This is a must see attraction. The views from the top are simply sensational. You have great views across the Alps and the stunning Bodensee. In winter the mountain views are totally awesome and in summer you can walk down the mountain through beautiful scenery. There is the added attraction of welcoming bars at the very top and you can...

We were fortunate to go to the top via cable car on a beautiful clear sunny day. The views were terrific and the walks along the paths were so enjoyable especially seeing some of the local wild life. A must see when in the area - especially on a clear day.

I was not aware of this attraction in Bregenz! Exceptional views from top, both on the mountains as well as on the lake.

Don't bother if its cloudy or rainy. Definitely go if the skies are clear. Easy to find, we turned up just before 10, and got on the cable car straight away. Did not bother with eagles feeding time (but would have done if I was travelling with young children). Spent about 2 hours admiring the views over Lake Constance. When... More

If holidaying around the Bodensee ( Lake Constance ) area a trip up the Pfanderbahn cable car is a must. Easy to find and tickets are cheap, this is a great way to have an amazing view across Lake Constance and the mountains when you get to the top. When you get to the top, there is a restaurant with...

This is a must-do if in Bregenz on a clear day. The lower station is just a short walk from the lakeside and the trip to the top of Pfander is well worth the price (around 11 euro). The view from the top is fantastic and you can also sit with a beer/coffee to take in the view.
