Below is Lake Constance, surrounded by the Rhine valley and the Swabian hills.The mountain is a popular tourist destination, with hiking paths, an alpine park and restaurants.TransportThe Pfänder Tunnel takes the A14 motorway underneath the Pfänder, bypassing Bregenz.

  • Fantastic place to discover in nature, took a cable car in the evening, there were few people at the top which allowed us to enjoy the animal park without anyone. Horses, goats, deer, marmots etc. people in well-appointed parks. We had a lot of fun making this visit

  • In the course of a weekend break in Lindau, we were also on the pfänder. Arriving at the top we enjoyed for a few hours the fantastic view over Lake Constance and the mountains in the sun.
