This time I virtually wanna take you to Schwarzenberg – truly one of the most beautiful villages I’ve ever seen: The traditional architecture consists of perfectly maintained, wooden houses, most of them several hundred years old! It’s located in an area called Bregenzerwald (named after Bregenz, the provincial capital) in Austria’s westernmost province of Vorarlberg. Too bad, I barely get to visit that part of Austria, as for us Viennese it’s considered quite far (even for such a small country)… Anyways, I spent some lovely days with my colleagues there as part of a company trip (which has been my third time already after Potsdam and Leogang) and we enjoyed some wonderful late summer weather!
We stayed at Hotel Hirschen Schwarzenberg, a historic mansion with cozy interior and an awarded restaurant. I’m so in love with this country-house style!
The first day was planned for sportive activities. We did quite a serious climb and took the fast way down on a zip-line overlooking the river. Very cool experience btw 😀
The second day was reserved for serious business talks, but at least we were surrounded by those splendid views on top of the Bezau cable car 😉
You could see as far as Lake Constance and neighbouring Switzerland and Germany…
Back in Schwarzenberg I captured some more impressions of the quiet and peaceful scenery that surrounded me – mellow hills that were dipped in golden light while the cows were grazing on them #countrysidelove
Goodbye Schwarzenberg, goodbye Bregenzerwald – I was truly impressed by your beauty!
Do you enjoy the countryside?
