We went on an overcast day with low cloud, so missed any distant views of the alps. The booking process is efficient and the prices reasonable. The views as you travel up the mountain are inspiring, but once at the top we couldn't see much. The wildlife park at the top wasn't great. I think it you had longer and... More

At the top, there are great views, eating and drinking options and clearly defined paths (colour coded for difficulty and with distances marked) if you want to explore a bit. If you are a little scared of travelling on a cable car (like me), stand in the middle and look out the sides at the scenery. Far less scary than... More

We took a chance that we would still be able to see something despite a showery day, and we were rewarded with a break in the clouds and a dazzling vista over the length of the Bodensee. Once at the upper Pfanderbahn station, there are views spanning at least 270 degrees, taking in parts of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, with... More

We took the cable car on a beautifully sunny day and were rewarded with outstandingly clear vistas for miles around. On arrival at the top station there is a restaurant, shops and alpine zoo (you can view some of the animals without charge). Radiating out from the cable car station are various mountain paths. If you take the path leading... More

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)
