Bungee jump

This bridge is high, fair enough. One hundred and six metres should suffice for a gentle fall on an elastic rope, as well as for a good adrenaline cocktail in your body. This jump is considered seriously cool – the extremely tough safety standards have been proving themselves accident-free since 1997. This is the perfect place for anybody bravely looking for the next adventure.

Sunrise hike

Start your day on the top of a mountain, watch the sun rise and remind yourself of the scale of things – this brings you back down to earth for the tasks to be faced. However, night owls can take a sigh of relief: observing the sunset from the stop of a mountain has the same, salutary effect.

3D archery

It would be a shame to let a conference or congress programme in Vorarlberg come to an end without enjoying one of the numerous natural or cultural activities on offer here. One of the playful team-building exercises is the perfect way to wind down following the intensive exchange of insights. Or maybe you prefer to finish your meeting with a sensorial flourish, and enjoy a culinary highlight from the regional cuisine?

Irrespective of how much time you have at your disposal, whether it is summer or winter, indoors or out, the region offers the most varied challenges imaginable.  Set against breath-taking natural backdrops, between the mountain and the lake, between the lowlands of the Rhine Valley and the peaks of the Piz Buin.

Group activities as well as time-out alone are quite simply refreshing for the soul, and give you the chance to experience and absorb the extraordinary, before you get back to everyday life.

The cultural pastimes in the region are on the lively side and of a high quality. The Bregenz Festival – held on the world’s largest lake stage – functions as a culture magnet. The Schubertiade, the Bregenzer Frühling dance festival, the Kunsthaus Bregenz and, it goes without saying, Vorarlberg architecture, are also very popular amongst visitors.

Making a decision is hard – the best thing to do is to take advantage of the advice offered by the team at the Convention Partner Vorarlberg, in order to draw up the perfect package for you.
