Lochau is situated in the westernmost federal country of Austria, Vorarlberg. Due to our central location in the triangle of Austria, Germany and Switzerland, the so called “Dreiländereck”, you have a wide choice of day trips and excursions. Even the Fürstentum Liechtenstein is within easy reach from your holiday home. A 45 km trip on the motorway will bring you there. Mind that the Austrian and Swiss motorways are toll roads. Motorway vignettes are sold at the border crossings.

Tips for excursions and sights you might want to see:

Cities and Places:

Festival town Bregenz: Bregenz is a lively and charming city, not only at festival times. Its situation on the Lake of Constance invites people to admire the lakeside stage and to enjoy a relaxing walk along the lake.

Other places of interest:

The old town of Feldkirch with the Schattenburg Castle and its Cathedral and the old town of  Dornbirn, which is the biggest town of Vorarlberg, are two of our guests’ favourites as far as sightseeing and shopping are concerned.

Fürstentum Liechtenstein: Especially Vaduz, the Lord’s residence, and the old town of Bad Ragatz are worth seeing.

Another beautiful and interesting destination for a day trip is St. Gallen with its old town and its world-famous library in the Abbey of St. Gallen.

There is a wide offer of boat trips on the lake and of memorable day excursions by ship or by boat.

Enthusiastic bikers will enjoy the well marked bicycle paths around the lake.
