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...

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.

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
