The Waterway


Equipped with only one backpack, you get to know the different facets of the Bregenzerache river when hiking throught the region for 2 days. The river flows upstream from Sulzberg to Au. Meanwhile, your luggage gets transported from one hotel to the other - a comfortable way of hiking.
The Bregenzerache is the most important river of the Bregenzerwald region. It rises above the village of Schröcken at an altitude of 2,400m and flows into Lake Constance after 80 kilometers. Partly, the river is gentle and provides attractive bathing sites. Partly, it flows through gorges and is inaccessible.
