Diverse art and culture bliss in Vorarlberg
The clergy house as an exhibition venue: at the newly adapted “Kulisse Pfarrhof” you will experience 100 years of skiing history with a focus on Vorarlberg and Damüls. The big question is whether the Damüls locals see themselves as “Wälder” or “Walser”.
The various other exhibition venues in the Großes Walsertal and the Bregenz Forest are also extremely worth visiting.
- Großes Walsertal local museum
- Blons doll museum
- Angelika Kauffmann Museum in Schwarzenberg
- Women's museum in Hittisau
- Bezau local museum
- Hittisau alpine dairy museum
- Hittisau 19th century life in pictures

- Felbers Schiefes Haus in Sibratsgfäll
Experience art in the Bregenz Forest holiday resort without visiting a museum, just open your eyes: from public outdoor art projects to traditional and contemporary architecture that make “das Ländle”, as Vorarlberg is also called, a true eye-turner.
Top-class culture highlights
Every year the big festivals in Vorarlberg attract many visitors in the popular holiday resort between Arlberg and Lake Constance. From Bregenz Festival to Schubertiade and Lecher Kultursommer, the performances include top-notch concerts, operas and theatre productions.
Arlberg Classic Car Rally
Every year at the beginning of summer, lovers of motorized gems come together in Vorarlberg. During the 4-day Arlberg Classic Car Rally, participants can look forward to extraordinary routes through fantastic alpine landscapes. The starter field alone is impressive and boasts the different epochs of automobile history. Be a part of one of the most beautiful classic car rallys in the Alps, as a driver or as a spectator.
The dying of the so-called „Juppen“, the traditional costumes of the Bregenzerwald, is a craft that has been pursued for centuries. In the Juppenwerkstatt Riefensberg you can learn more about this technique and see the stiff, shiny fabric, folded multiple times, of which the Juppen are made. This women’s costume is one of the oldest of Europe. Admire this special craft in the Juppenwerkstatt Riefensberg which is open from the beginning of May to the end of October.
Close to the customs
In the Bregenz Forest holidays full of nativeness, authenticity and tradition await you. The centuries-old Vorarlberg customs are still celebrated and affectionately lived by the Damüls locals. At cosy local evenings, musical gatherings, farmers' markets, the traditional Almabtrieb or important clerical occasions – take part in the village's events and experience the idyllic alpine region's traditions from up close.
