Located between the lake and the city centre, in direct proximity to the Art House and the State Theatre, the architectural masterpiece of the new vorarlberg museum forms the end of the culture boulevard. The main point of attraction is the more than 150,000 artefacts from art, history, folklore and archaeology that deal with the history and present of Austria’s westernmost federal state from a wide range of perspectives.
Theater am Kornmarkt
The State Theatre in Bregenz plays a significant role in the cultural happenings of Vorarlberg’s state capital. The repertoire ranges from classics to debut performances. The theatre, as a place of imagination, stories and emotions, focuses consciously on traditional and contemporary theatre art, thus finding its recognition in the cultural landscape of the Lake Constance region.
International, diverse, inspiring
Courage to take risks, enjoyment of the unusual and the all-surpassing commitment to quality: with spectacular art events, large exhibitions and themed group exhibitions, the Bregenz galleries provide innovative splashes of colour in the local and international culture scene.
Particularly in the winter months, the Bregenz indoor swimming pool and its varied wellness area, the vitalium, invite visitors to enjoy relaxing hours in a cosy atmosphere. Finnish saunas, steam rooms and steam baths contribute to a perfect wellness day and ensure a holistic indulgence programme. From the jacuzzi, the guests let their gazes wander to Lake Constance. They enjoy indulging baths, relaxing massages and stimulating dip tank and forget the hustle and bustle of everyday life for a moment.
The museum in the valley station of the Pfänderbahn in Bregenz is a popular trip destination in any weather and at any time of year!
Here, families go on the trace of the history of the country’s first person cable car, which opened on 20 March 1927. Picture material and exhibition items inform children and adults on the idea of a railway on the Pfänder around the turn of the century into the present.
Coffee house culture
Hardly any country has as pronounced a tradition when it comes to coffee culture and sweet dishes as Austria. A tradition that is also maintained in many places in Bregenz.
In 1952, the Metro Cinema in Bregenz, with 500 seats, opened its doors. Since then it has offered film lovers and true cineastes unending cinema enjoyment. In 1958, the cinema already had 853 seats, thus becoming the biggest cinema in western Austria. Despite innovative film technology, the Metro Cinema radiates its unmistakable charm of a traditional cinema to this day.

The Vorarlberg State Library is located in a former abbey, the Gallusstift, at the foot of the Gebhardsberg. The former baroque church was meticulously converted and the imposing reading hall in particular lures visitors into an impressive literary world.
The Art House stands in the light of Lake Constance. Its structure is built from glass plates, steel and a stone mass of cast concrete that forms structure and space in the interior of the building. Viewed from outside, the building gives the impression of an illuminant.
