A must when visiting Bregenz is The Pfänder,the local mountain on Lake Constance, where visitors can take The Pfänder panoramic Cable Car and float quickly and comfortably to the mountain station on The Pfänder (1064m) in the Vorarlberg region of Austria.

Two observation platforms on The Pfänder provide information about the Lake region and Alpine peaks.
