Nature and Culture Days in BludenzScenic Bludenz is located at 570 meters above sea level, where five Alpine valleys meet - Walgau, Brandnertal, Montafon, Klostertal and Großes Walsertal. Therefore it makes a perfect base for nature exploration in the picture-book surroundings in summer and winter alike. A real holiday heaven for sport aficionados, pleasure-seeking holiday makers and families with children. You can choose from endless hiking paths and mountain bike trails in summer, and immaculate ski slopes and powder runs in winter. Culture fans are recommended to visit the charming old town of Bludenz with its romantic arcades and nice shops. Beer lovers explore the local Fohrenburg brewery. Other highlights not to be missed are St. Laurentius church and the town's castle.
Picture-book old town amid mountainsTwo of the town's landmarks are St. Laurentius church and Baroque-style Schloss Gayenhofen castle. 138 steps lead on top of the church tower that offers awe-inspiring panoramic views. With a bit of luck you can listen to one of Gammon's artistic sound installations. The historical old town boasts narrow lanes, medieval buildings and patrician houses worth-seeing.
The surrounding area of Bludenz lends itself to activities amid unspoilt nature: walk along the lovely Montikel panorama trail, take a rest on the benches and indulge in stunning views of the scenery.
