Culture | Museen

Take, for example, the smart baroque churches and meticulously maintained chapels. Or the Schubertiade with its superb singers and instrumentalists in Angelika Kauffmann’s village of Schwarzenberg. The museums of village history, Franz-Michael Felder, women’s issues and the traditional folk costume of the Bregenzerwald.

Brass music concerts, music festivals, church and mountain concerts attest as much to the creativity of the Bregenzerwald as do the crafts and design shows, the centuries old timber-covered bridges and industrial monuments. All this is accompanied by modern timber architecture, which is deemed an international sensation due to its prevalence in this rural area.
