Schubertiade and Solice 

The recent posts about Oberammergau reminded me of the Bregenzerache river, set in an Alpine valley with that characteristic beauty of softly-rolling foothills and majestic mountains, luscious mixed forests, high-Alpine coniferous woods and green meadows dotted with wild flowers.

Through this stunning landscape, captured by the lens of Peter Zelei, winds a narrow road to the small town of Schwarzenberg which lies in the heart of Bregenz Forest. Continuing into the centre of the town, the road is flanked in early summer by blossoming trees which lead to the Angelika Kauffmann Hall. It is the home of the Schubertiade, another Alpine summer festival and regarded as the most significant and distinguished Schubert festival in the world.

The festival runs throughout the summer, and these links provide detailed tourist information about Bregenz Forest and Bregenz and Lake Constance.

Besides the music and there are other notable music festivals in the region, there are numerous other activities on offer, such as river-rafting, bungee jumping, golf, rock-climbing, horseback riding, fishing, nature tours and of course hiking. Jame Bond fans might recognise the Tosca opera scenes in "Quantum of Solace", filmed on location.
