The Pfänder is a mountain in western Austria close to Lake Constance (Bodensee). The town of Bregenz lies at the foot of the mountain on the shores of the lake. With its views over the lake and the surrounding mountain peaks, the Pfänder is one of the most famous lookout points of the region.With good visibility, the view from the summit reaches from the Allgäu and Lech valley Alps in the east, over to the Bregenz Forest, the steep mountain peaks of Arlberg region, Silvretta, and the Rätikon to the Swiss mountains and the foothills of the Black Forest in the west. Below is Lake Constance, surrounded by the Rhine valley and the Swabian hills.The mountain is a popular tourist destination, with hiking paths, an alpine park and restaurants.TransportThe Pfänder Tunnel takes the A14 motorway underneath the Pfänder, bypassing Bregenz. This is a now a dual tunnel, having opened in July 2013The summit of the Pfänder can be reached by a cable car called the Pfänderbahn, with the base station in the town of Bregenz. The cable car covers a height difference of over 600m in around 6 minutes.

  • One may ride up and down our walk down as there are very nice paths for walking. The views are stunning. Beer available during busy times. Small play ground.  more »
  • It is a very pleasant trip: ride cable car, take a spin through the top, visit the small zoo, admire the Lake, walk down Bregenz and enjoy this pleasant Austrian village: a luxury.

  • We had to wait about 30 minutes on new year's eve day in beautiful, sunny weather before we were much too crowded gondola on the pfänder mountain. Top it was very windy, lots of snow, as well as at all not granted, i.e. poorly accessible. The view was very good, but far too many people. For the quite high price for mountain - and Valley drive, one might expect already half cleared paths and at least a snack bar at the mountain station.
