The climate of Vorarlberg (Austria)
Vorarlberg is a federal state located in the most western tip of
Austria. The capital is Bregenz, the largest city is Dornbirn.
Vorarlberg borders Germany in the north, Tyrol in the east and
Liechtenstein and Switzerland in the south and west. Bears have made
this region their habitat, coming from Trentino, Italy. Expectations
are that wolves will also make this region their habitat. The Alpine
valley Montafon is well known. Cities and villages such as Vadans,
Schruns, Tschagguns, Gergellen and Gaschurn can be found here. During
the summer you can go mountaineering, hiking and mountain biking.
During the winter the region transforms into a skiing paradise, the
area is covered in a thick blanket of snow. Many footpaths and cross
country skiing tracks can be found here as well. Vorarlberg has a
continental climate with cold and reasonably dry winters and
pleasantly warm but wet summers. Please, bear in mind that the skiing
tracks are at a higher altitude where it may be much colder.
