April 29, 2020
Your varied long-distance hike starts in Hittisau. If you want to arrive the day before, an overnight stay in one of the excellent hotels in Hittisau, such as the Hotel Krone or the Romantikhotel Das Schiff, is recommended. You can make the first stop on this stage in the Hittisau Women's Museum. It is the only one of its kind in Austria and is located in an interesting, wood-clad building.Not far from the women's museum and the church is another excellent example of Vorarlberg architecture: the so-called tower house is a private single-family house that nestles narrowly and high on the slope. Right in the center of Hittisau you will discover centuries-old houses clad in wooden shingles and striking buildings such as the charity house, which houses a world shop.From the village center, head west, where you walk through the romantic Engenlochschlucht. The path leads over a suspension bridge to the other bank of the Bolgenach and to the next architectural highlight in this area, the loft in the barn. After crossing Bolgenach again, you climb to Rotenberg. On the forest educational trail you hike back down to the valley and reach the tranquil Lingenau, your destination today. In Lingenau you will find a good selection of restaurants and accommodation.
