Winterwanderung Niedere Höhe – Winter in Vorarlberg
Vorarlberg planned a hike.
October 14, 2020
From Bezau you take the cable car up to the Baumgarten mountain station, the starting point of this winter hike. The architecture of the station and the adjoining mountain restaurant, which you can stop off at after your tour, is modern and straightforward.To warm up, the first ascent is imminent at the beginning of your tour: With a wonderful view of the mountains of Vorarlberg and the Swiss Alps, you hike from Baumgarten next to the ski slope up to the Hintere Niedere Höhe. There the winter hiking trail branches off to the left and leads you past snow-covered fir trees and bushes. High above the Bregenz Forest, you hike over the Vordere Niedere down to the wooden Theodul Chapel, which is located on a slope with a great view. The windowless, puristic interior offers a nice place to rest.Just a few steps away is the mountain inn Niedere, the perfect place to warm up with a hot drink. From the terrace you can enjoy a fantastic view of Lake Constance when the view is clear. Then it goes back on the same route to the starting point at the mountain station.The path from the Niedere Höhe junction is only groomed when there is sufficient snow. You can get information about this from the Bezau cable car at +43 (0) 5514-2254.
