Holiday in Au
Location and orientation
The wonderful and quiet village of Au has adapted fully to its visitors. No wonder, after all, you are in an almost perfect position here: on one side the seemingly endless woodlands of the rear Bregenzerwald, on the other the Eastern Alps with their peaks and valleys. Located in the westernmost province of Austria, Vorarlberg, the distance to Bregenz on Lake Constance is just 48 kilometres, and even Friedrichshafen in Germany is just 80 kilometres from Au. But it's so nice here that you won't want to leave!
From May to October, the municipalities around Au issue the free Bregenzerwaldcard, with which you can use public transport free of charge and leave your car behind!
Top 3 travel tips
The "Wäldlerbähnle", as the Bregenzerwaldbahn is affectionately called, once connected Bregenz with Bezau in the Bregenzerwald. Today, only a part of the once more than 35 kilometres long route of barely 5 kilometres has been preserved, but this is especially beautiful and can be travelled with the museum railway. During the trip you can enjoy great views of the Bregenzerwald and the surrounding area. Parts of the route, such as the Andelsbuch railway station, are now used for other purposes: numerous cultural events and exhibitions take place here. Most of the old routes were converted into cycle paths and some bridges can now be climbed - secured, of course.2. Hiking and winter sports in Bregenzerwald
Around your vacation rental in Au there are numerous hiking and cycling trails worth exploring. There is something for every taste and requirement, from a leisurely walk through the forest to a challenging climbing tour in the Alps. And even during the winter months it doesn't get boring here: cross-country skiing trails, ski runs, snow runs or simply down a slope with a sleigh - the children won't forget this holiday in Au so quickly! And neither do you, of course.3. An excursion to Lake Constance
