Hiking to Alpe Rothenbach

Our "house hike" to Hirschen's Alpe Rothenbach behind the Klausberg takes two hours. On the way back, we recommend you stop at the St. Ilga spring, whose water is said to have healing power on eye complaints, gout, and open wounds.

Poetic hike on the Eduard Mörike Path (historical hike)

In 1857, the famous poet Eduard Mörike went on a summer getaway at the Hirschen with his wife Margarethe. On the occasion of his 200th birthday, the community built the "Eduard-Mörike hiking path". This day hike leads from the town center through hamlets and shady forests over a high moor up to the Hochälpele, which fascinated Mörike with its gorgeous views. The path is signposted with poetic commemorative plaques.

Geißkopf Tour (part of the "Legend Hike")

According to legend, the blessed siblings Merbod, Diedo, and Ilga descended from the counts of Bregenz of the 11th century. The siblings dedicated their lives to prayer. Ilga said goodbye one last time to her brothers on the Lorena pass. They cried a lot. As the tears fell to the ground, a spring appeared on this very spot. Another spring appeared on the Berghalde, where Ilga had spilled water at her hermitage. To this day, the water of these springs is thought to have healing properties – those afflicted with eye diseases in particular make pilgrimages to the springs to wet their eyes with this healing water.
The hike starts at Berghof Fetz and then heads towards Geißkopf-Bergvorsäß-Lorena. There is an info board here about the legend. The spring is located in the upper forest in the direction of Maien. The path was previously an old packer's route from Alberschwende to Schwarzenberg. A trail on the Unterer Geißkopf takes you back to the starting point. Time-on-trail ca. 2.5 hrs.

Hiking in the Fohramoos

The Fohramoos nature reserve on the Bödele is a recreational jewel. Experience walking over the swampy meadows barefoot.

Bezau Baumgarten

Take the gondola from Bezau to Baumgarten at an elevation of 1648m. This is the most convenient and comfortable way to enjoy an indescribable panorama from Lake Constance to Arlberg.


Hiking in Schönebach

Classic hike on the wonderfully located Vorsäß. Delicious cheese dumplings at Gasthof Egender included.

Mountain tour on the Kanisfluh

Experience the sunrise on the Kanisfluh in ibex territory. On one of the most striking mountains in Bregenzerwald, breakfast tastes even better. A hike on the loop trail from the summit station takes 3.5 hours.
