A mountainous state in western Austria, bordered by Germany, Liechtenstein and Switzerland, Vorarlberg is known for its ski resorts and stunning alpine scenery. Bregenz, its capital on the shores of Lake Constance, is one of Austria's most tranquil bodies of water and home to yearly opera performances held aboard a floating stage. This region also contains many rivers, including the Ill, the Rhine, the Bregenzer Ache and the Dornbirner Ach, all of which are perfect for tubing, boating, or simply soaking in the atmosphere. Visit in winter to see the icy beauty of the Silvretta, the Rätikon, the Verwall and the Arlberg, as well as Piz Buin, whose impressive peak of 3,312 m (10,866 ft) is surrounded by glaciers.
