Anyone looking for mountain-solitude is not right here. On the first glance, there are large crowds bustling on the local mountain of Bregenz. Of course, the tour leads to more remote corners of the ridge of the Pfänder where there are smaller villages hidden from those who choose to get to the top by cable car. In any case, the cable-car ride to the summit station (1023 m) already gives a hint of what to expect. Arriving at the top we are swept away by a breathtaking contrast of lake and different kinds of mountains. Additionally, there is the Rhine valley expanding below us in northern and southern direction. In autumn, when the valley is covered in thick fog in the morning, which is often the case, an especially impressive view opens up showing the Swiss summits towering behind it. In eastern and southeastern direction the mountains of the Bregenzerwald are at our feet. The Pfänder summit, however, blocks the view in northern direction over the Allgäu. Whoever wants to enjoy an unblocked 360° view has to take the additional 40 meters to the summit following the circular trail. The actual tour leads across meadows and through sparse forests past farms and villages. One section of the tour takes its course above the villages on the so-called “Höhenweg” (Ridgeway). With continuance of the tour the view does not get much greater than at the start, but the lovely hilly landscape of the Allgäu also has its charm.
