Landscape, culture, variety, quality of life - good reasons to take a summer holiday in Vorarlberg.
Vorarlberg is the second smallest federal country of Austria, yet one which has plenty of attractions to offer. The "land in front of the Arlberg" has some of the most impressive landscapes of Europe: surrounded by the mighty mountain ranges of the Silvretta and Verwall group, the Rätikon, the Lechtal and Allgäu Alps and the Bregenzerwald. From the vast plain of Lake Constance the landscapes lead on to almost mediterranean gardens in the Rheintal valley, along the shores of Lake Constance and in the lower regions of the Bregenzerwald, and over wood-clad mountains to the glacier-topped peaks of the Silvretta range. What welds so much diversity into a common identity is the harmony which exists here between man and Nature. Vorarlberg is a symphony of human and natural serenity. Balsam for the soul, where Nature has been left unspoilt and mass tourism is unknown.
Contemporary architecture and festivals of world renown have attracted attention all over Europe. Between 7 and 29 July 2008, culture and football will celebrate an exceptional encounter during the European Championships 2008.
