Hiking My Way For The Best Käsespätzle In Vorarlberg Austria

While in Bregenzerwald – Bregenz Forest, we had an amazing hike from Schetteregg (part of Egg village) to a remote little village with no shops, just an Inn, 30 houses, a few locals and hundreds of cows, of course: The village name is Schönbach and the Inn – Jagdgasthaus Egender.

As we also spent the night in there, we (me and my girl friend) had each a backpack with change clothes beside all the camera equipment.

Packing list:

  • Water
  • Some snacks
  • Comfortable shoes (trainers works fine) and sport gear in layers: at noon was so hot, yet in the night the temperatures drop significantly.
  • Sunscreen, hat, sunglases
  • Vorarlberg App – works offline too. Yet we didn’t use it was all the trail was so well marked as we were able to find the way with no additional help!
  • Champagne – little bottles, to celebrate being here, we did as it was way too beautiful!

How long it usually takes for the hike: 3 hours

How long it took us: 5. This due to our countless stops to admire the view and take pictures, couldn’t stop!

The hike was spectacular: we passes waterfalls, mountains, saw hundreds of cows, mountain bikers, beautiful little villages. It was a dream and the weather fantastic in the middle of June 2017.

In Schönbach

I cannot describe the pleasure and joy to just stay here on the terrace, to look at the Alps in this ocean of green and to hear the cow’s bells.

Käsespätzle: dumplings with a lot of cheese and fried onion, prepared in the oven. Is very very tasty. We also took meat and apple strudel and salad and lots of beer! And then just spent the night here, which was really perfect!
