Bregenz is the capital city of Vorarlberg and has almost 30,000 residents. It sits on the northern edge of the Alps on the edge of Lake Constance, which is one of the largest lakes in Europe. The city is popular as a travel destination during the summer months when it hosts several festivals. The most famous and popular one is the summer music festival, Bregenzer Festspiele.
There are a handful of interesting sights around town. Kunsthaus Bregenz is located in a building that was designed by Peter Zumthor. It houses different contemporary art exhibits that often change and rotate. Martinsturm, or Martin's Tower, is the most famous landmark in the city. It also has the largest "onion cupola" in Europe and is open between Easter and mid October daily. Otherwise, it is closed on Mondays.

Seebuhne and Festival House is an interesting place to see. Guided tours are available during the festival season. It's also possible to access the open air seating area for free when there are no performances going on. This will let you see the floating stage, which was featured in the James Bond movie, Quantom of Solace, in 2008.

If you want to head a little bit outside of town, you can go to Wettingen-Mehrerau Abbey. It's just a short walk or bike ride along the lake's edge and is worth a visit. It's approximately two kilometers from the main train station.

The Lower Town has a town hall that was built in 1686, a theater, several churches and the tourist centre.

There are some wonderful activities you can enjoy around town and it is really recommended that you visit during the summer months when the weather is at its warmest and there are many fun festivals and events going on.

Reservations and advanced planning is advised if you plan to be in the area during this time. Also be aware that some prices might jump up higher than normal.
