Fodor's Review

A cable car takes you up to this 3,491-foot peak overlooking Bregenz, one of the most famous lookout points in the region, from which you can see four countries—Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein and Switzerland—and almost 240 Alpine peaks. It's a breathtaking view, with the city directly below on the shores of the Bedensee and the lake stretching for 64 km (40 miles) into the hazy distance. On your left lies the Rhine valley, and you can see the hills of Liechtenstein and Switzerland. Just across the water from Bregenz you'll notice the ancient and fascinating German island-city of Lindau in Bavaria, once a free state (a status it lost in 1802). The Pfänder restaurant is open June–mid-September. Children will enjoy a 30-minute circular hike to a small outdoor zoo with deer, Alpine goats, and wild boar. Admission is free.

Adlerwarte. Eagles and other birds of prey demonstrate their prowess in free flight May–September at 11 and 2:30. 0664/905–3040. €5.
