In Roman times Bregenz was a transportation and communication hub of supra-regional importance. At that time the Lake of Constance was named after the city – “Lacus Brigantinus” – the Bregenz Lake. The history of modern Bregenz began with the new founding of the upper town on a plateau overlooking the lake. Growing slowly but surely, the originally agricultural settlement developed to become a significant hub of the grain trade in the region, and the later industrialization and construction of railway connections helped Bregenz become the modern industrial and tourist city which it is.
