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.
