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

Excellent views & good walking areas at the top. Good to see the animals as well, particularly the Moufflons.

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.

A great stop off as we were only spending a day in Bregenz on our way around the Bodensee. Fantastic views of Austria, Switzerland and Germany, Lake Konstanz, the Alps, complete with a mini 'zoo' for the kids, a bird show, and cafes. Well worth the ride.

The gondola in Bregenz is well worth the time and money. The entrance is near the heart of downtown. I think there is free parking in the back, but nearby parking requires slight payment in the parking meter machine at the bottom of the lot. The gondola is a large enclosed cabin with expansive glass. Rising up to 1064 m,... More

Lots of walks from the top and views across the Bodensee. Self-service restaurant available, although there is road access as well so the top is pretty busy.

We were passing through Bregenz on our way to Switzerland. A local had told us about the Pfanderbahn. It was a clear day, so we decided to try it. It was great! You could see about halfway across Lake Constance to the west, and the Swiss alps to the south. You could see the island of Lindau and the rolling... More
