For couples who are in need of some relaxation together the Kuschelhotel Gams is the ideal spot - gay or straight. It's a romantic hideaway in the heart of Bezau, one of the Bregenzerwald's cozy villages. Elegant materials, design with an attention to detail, and soft lighting create a special atmosphere in the whole hotel. With an herbal sauna and an earth sauna, a quiet room, and indoor and outdoor pools the spa area leaves no wish unanswered. The hotel restaurant creates a warm atmosphere for a romantic candlelight dinner for two. There's also a special Lying Dinner and a sleepy Pyjama Breakfast in your room. If the Bregenzerwald region wasn't so stunning there would be no reason to leave the hotel on your vacation.
Sometimes size isn't everything, as the Hotel Bären in Mellau proves. This small, one-of-a-kind hotel in Vorarlberg is an interesting place. The Frick family wanted to create a refuge for friends and guests who value quality and attention to detail. The Boutiquehotel Bären stands for open-minded simplicity, Alpine charm - and since it's the Bregenzerwald region - for modern design that's influenced by natural materials and clean originality. That's why there's no question that gay and lesbian couples are just as welcome as straight partners.
At the hotel's Café Deli there's an incredible regional breakfast, slow food, and specialty coffee. The furniture in all guest rooms comes from local craftsmen and the minimalist sauna and quiet room offer picturesque views of the Alps.
250 years of hospitality make Hotel Hirschen in Schwarzenberg a unique stay. Art and culture are part of the hotel's concept and will frame your whole stay in Bregenzerwald. Host Franz Fetz grew his own art collection, created a concert series, and furnished the rooms with unique pieces of art. Over the last three decades he has turned the Hotel Hirschen into a cosmopolitain hotspot amidst the sleepy village of Schwarzenberg and opened it to the rest of the world. Franz's son Peter Fetz brings another piece of international flair: after spending time globetrotting he returned to Schwarzenberg to lead the hotel. There's no better place to stay for a visit of the Schubertiade classical music festival or the Bregenz Festival. You can also mix things up with a relaxed hike to the hotel's mountain hut, where the cheese you can sample at breakfast is still made in small batches.
