Hike and bike
Bregenz is a city of short distances. In a little while you are anywhere by bike or by foot. We show you the cycle track and footway system and along these routes, between lake and mountain, we will explore good practices in sustainable architecture: dwellings, premises and cultural buildings.
Starting Time: 14.00 h, accompanied by Martin Schweighofer, Meeting Point: Infodesk
Try and buy
Our partner Sutterlüty, the retailer with the largest share in regional products, invites us to the brand new low energy supermarket and to special regional producers: Ingo Metzler (goat cheese and whey cosmetics), Martinshof (eggs and noodles), Bregenzerwälder Käsekeller (the smell of one million kg of cheese).
Starting Time: 13.00 h, accompanied by Willi Sieber, Meeting Point: Infodesk
Walk and talk
Nature and culture in the Bregenzerwald region, where resilience is at home: an exquisite mélange of agriculture, handicraft, architecture and tourism. We walk across Langenegg, Europe’s highest awarded village in energy efficiency, and enjoy the guided “wood culture” tour in Hittisau.
Starting Time: 13.40 h, accompanied by Yasemin Cankaya, Meeting Point: Infodesk
Wood and good
The Life Cycle Tower One, an 8-storey timber building, is the new sustainable lighthouse of our partner Rhombergbau and under construction right now. We gain insight into this unique design and see what’s hidden after completion: the supporting structure of the building, all made of timber.
Starting Time: 14.00 h, accompanied by Katrin Löning, Meeting Point: Infodesk
