(4.4/5 based on 160 reviews on the web)
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, a birds of prey show and a restaurant.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 view is beautiful, you will see Bregenz and its surroundings around Lake Constance. There is also a little zoo at the top of the hill with a handful of alpine animals. 
  • Great ride with the cable car up the pfänder mountain. It comes closely on the parking lot. Nice day trip from Bregenz out!

  • The mountain commands a fine veiw of bregenz, lake kontanz and even lindau. During spring and summer, I'd like to recommand to enjoy hiking at here rather than taking a cable car.

  • The views of the peaks is blocked by trees. Very disappointing.

  • Wonderful views of Lake Constance. The ascent is not suitable for everyone, because a safe kick is a prerequisite.

  • We have arrived with the ship little walk from the Harbor to the valley station. It is worth the train ride up the Trail enjoy and this great views over the Lake.
