Perched on the northern edge of the Alps in close proximity of the four-border corner of Liechtenstein, Germany, and Switzerland, is the Austrian city of Bregenz. The eastern shore of the famous Lake Constance meets the contours of the town, thereby increasing the potential for tourism here exponentially.
The beautiful city of Bregenz is accessible via air courtesy of the three proximal airports of Zurich, Friedrichshafen, and Munich, respectively. The populous city is visited by thousands of tourists, many of whom get a car for hire in Bregenz to explore the entire region by making the city their primary base. The city is also connected to several parts of Austria and beyond via train, road, and bus services as well. Locals recommend, however, that those coming to town without their own vehicle here should definitely get one for hire while in town.
A lot of tourists find themselves gravitating towards the Lake the very moment they enter the town. There is just so much to see and do in vicinity of it. One can go swimming, or enjoy boat cruises to places such as Kontanz in the period between April and October. The Lake Promenade is well-frequented too, on account of having some great outdoor restaurants. Moreover, the month-long Bregenz Festival held from mid-July to mid-August is centered around the Lake. It is where the world’s largest floating stage is built annually, and brilliant performances by international stars are showcased. Even if one is in town for an extremely brief period, they should definitely hire a car in Bregenz and visit the Lake. It is truly spectacular.
Bregenz has so much to offer its visitors that people often feel they are unable to do justice to the city on a short trip. Important historic/cultural sites such as the Martin’s Tower, St. Gallus Church, The Art House, the Museum of Military History and ruins of the fortress of Hohenbregenz are worth visiting. Those who can appreciate scenic beauty should get a car for rent in Bregenz and visit the proximal port-town of Lindau, which offers stunning views of the Swiss landscape, apart from having wonderful shopping facilities as well.
The Austrian town of Bregenz is ideal for a fun-filled vacation, be it a long, luxurious holiday, or a short weekend getaway. Furthermore, with the availability of rather cheap car rentals, it becomes all the more easy to afford the luxury of having a vehicle to drive around when on holiday.
