Summer variety in the mountains
SPORT, CULTURE AND LOTS OF NATURE
High adventure is waiting for you not far from the hotel. At the Damüls mountain ropes park, you will experience the forest from a completely new perspective. You can enjoy marvellous views and overcome exciting challenges. Float from tree to tree and race back down from Bregenzerwald to the Große Walsertal with the 200 m long Flying Fox.
When you are this close to Lake Constance, you can’t miss out on a boat trip. With the three-country panorama trip, you can admire the landscapes of the shores of Austria, Germany and Switzerland. In addition to the daily regular schedules between April and mid-October, there are also cruises with a special programme. You can choose from tourist attractions, culinary enjoyment or parties – a wide choice is available.
If you enjoy historical exhibitions or musical highlights – if you are interested in art and culture, then you will be in heaven in and around Damüls. At the Großes Walsertal Museum, the Franz Michael Felder Museum or at Juppenwerkstatt Riefensberg to mention just a few options. You can discover unique ski curiosities at the Damüls ski museum. You can also experience the Schubertiade, a festival for Franz Schubert with song evenings, orchestra concerts and more.
Mountain cheese is the showpiece of our region. It is produced on the Alpe Oberdamül according to long-standing tradition. Look over the shoulder of the alpine dairy farmer at work and see how alpine cheese is lifted out of the vessels. A whole host of alpine dairies and farm families supply their home-made Bregenz Forest cheese with their products. Also here you can experience how original Bregenz Forest mountain or alpine cheese is produced and, above all, how it tastes.
Experience the unity of technology and an artistic landscape. The Wälderbähnle railway runs from May to October between Bezau and Schwarzenberg. Alternating with a more than 100 years old steam locomotive or a historical diesel locomotive, the Bähnle puffs along through the idyllic nature.
A conveyor belt quickly takes you up to the start ramp from where you can slide back down along more than 75 metres of the track. The summer tubing track is open the same hours as the Panoramabahn Stafelalpe and can be used by children aged 5 and above, but that doesn’t mean that parents can´t also enjoy the fun!
The Creativio Drei Lindenhof horse farm is a special place surrounded by the nature of the Biosphere Park Großes Walsertal and is a meeting place for horse lovers. Here you can trot and gallop over beautiful meadows or in a modern riding arena. The horse farm offers riding lessons and rides from 1 to 3 hours – for beginners and advanced riders, children and adults.
