Architecture aficionados regard Vorarlberg as THE European centre of contemporary architecture. Nowhere else will you find as many well-built, contemporary buildings in such a small area: hotels, schools, fire brigade buildings, community halls, and residential buildings. In the towns as well as the villages, the stylistic concept of the new Vorarlberg architecture unites the traditional with the modern.  

 E) Cheese Road- Bregenzerwald
