Austria's westernmost province constantly catches your attention. Whether because of its unique wood architecture, deeply rooted in tradition yet very much contemporary, its incredibly vibrant gastronomy scene, or the countless, diverse art and cultural events staged throughout the "Ländle". But above all, Vorarlberg is the ideal destination simply to arrive and relish every single moment to the fullest. In the beautiful Bregenzerwald, for instance. There, time seems to flow at a slightly different pace. It's hard to put into words, but those who have been there and felt its impact firsthand will surely agree: the Bregenzerwald casts a spell on you. The landscape is charming; mountains, hills, meadows, fields, and streams – alternating in complete harmony. The villages are strikingly picturesque, and the locals incredibly warmhearted. You can experience all of this at our Schlosshotel, and in fact the only one in Vorarlberg, Hotel Gasthof Hirschen in Schwarzenberg, which, the aforementioned creature comforts notwithstanding, also draws upon its own pool of creative potential that is second to none.
