Egg im Bregenzerwald
Egg is the largest community of the Bregenzerwald area and often referred to as the “Capital of Bregenzerwald”. Located to the south-east of Lake Constance, it makes an ideal base for a variety of activities. Egg is the perfect place to relax and unwind and leave dull everyday routine behind. Explore the picturesque surroundings and flower-strewn mountain meadows in the course of (guided) walks and hikes in summer, and marvel at the picture-postcard scenery of snow-capped mountains, woods and fields in winter. Egg offers a variety of leisure facilities and amenities that help relaxation-seeking visitors to fully unwind and enjoy their stay.
Egg: A summer in the mountains
The mountains of Egg lend themselves to nature exploration during the summer months. There are numerous walks that are particularly suitable for families to get some exercise, fresh air, and a decent meal at one of the charming mountain restaurants. In addition, Egg features rather demanding routes and trails – not only for hiking, but also for mountain biking and Nordic walking - for those in need of more challenging tasks.
At the mountain lodges and restaurants visitors are received with a warm welcome. Seize the opportunity to sample some of the authentic Vorarlberg specialties on offer. Also experience some of Vorarlberg’s music and traditions and the ‘rhythm of the Alps’ through weekly concerts given by the Egg brass band in July and August. The kids will love it, and so will you! With many new impressions in mind you will return to your accommodation, enjoy sound sleep, and get ready for another active day out.
