Bregenz Forest or Bregenzerwald is a popular area for recreational activities, in beautiful nature. Lush green plains, high-grown trees, and the occasional herd of cows. Not to mention the mountaintops offering stunning views for kilometres, in good weather conditions. If you, too, want to experience the recreational area at Bödele in the Upper Bregenz Forest and are traveling by car, I have summarized the multiple official parking spots near hiking routes below for you. In another post I’m also focussing on how to travel to Bödele/Schwarzenberg by public transport from Bregenz, Dornbirn and Feldkirch. For where to hike and route recommendations, check out the Hikes in the Bregenz Forest category.

  1. […] If you are travelling to Schwarzenberg by car or camper however, you wont need to know where bus stations are located. You will much rather need info on where it’s best to park your vehicle. May it be a motorbike or car, parking on the side of the road is usually not possible. It’s a rural area, and hence space for roads is limited and lanes are small.
