The Bregenzerwald is the perfect holiday region in any season for families, culture-lovers, hikers, sportsmen and women and gourmets.  But above all it is a haven for anyone seeking peace and relaxation off the beaten track in dreamy landscapes.  In summer the attractions include more than 2,000 kilometres of waymarked hiking trails through the forest, numerous golf courses and a host of Alpine dairies that welcome visitors, while in winter the scenery is transformed into fabulous ski pistes.  Gourmets relish  Bregenzerwald cheese varieties and hedonists in search of pampering and relaxation head for the wellness facilities at small but perfect spa hotels –  treats include everything from exotic aromatherapy to traditional saunas.
