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.
