The views are incredible and you can see the entire region where Germany, Austria and Switzerland come together overlooking the large and beautiful Lake Constance. Family oriented with lots of wildlife and a large playground.

Easy to reach, great value, and a full day of outdoor fun. Take the cable car to the top, have a coffee and strudel, see the animals and then walk down to Bregenz and have something to eat/drink on the lake.

Family ticket for 2 adults and 3 children was superb value. The views are exceptional but think twice about walking back down as it takes about 90 mins and is tough on the knees

The views are stunning for both - the lake and in the other direction from the top of the hill. The cable-car ride is fun and provides for breath-taking views as well. There's even a trampoline set that you can have fun on.

This takes you to great views of the peaks and lake and is great for a clear summer day. There is food and drink availalbe at the top. If reasonably fit then the walk down takes 1.5 - 2 hours and gives views and lovely quiet nature spots. (or take the cable car back of course)

A boring Saturday was transformed by a visit to Bregenz to experience this cable car ride. I thought it was exceptional value for three of us and the family dog. At the top you are treated to a wonderful vista and if conditions allow, views over lake Constance and close neighbors Switzerland and Germany. If you are really lucky you... More

Using the Pfaenderbahn will bring you to the house mountain of Bregenz. From nearly at the start in Bregenz, you have a beautiful view over the lake of constanze and if you have perfect weather conditions, you can see over the whole lake until constanze. On the Pfaender you have the best viewpoint to the bay of Bregenz. The Pfaenderbahn... More

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...
