In 15 mins. by car you are in the Fuerstentum Liechtenstein or in Switzerland, in 30 mins. you are at the beautiful lake Constance (Bodensee) with the Bregenz festival, Lindau in Germany, nice beaches and all the watersports facilities you could want. Another nice spot for a swim, the old arm of the river Rhine, can be reached within 20 mins.

Its 90 mins. to either Zurich or Munich, even Milan in Italy is easily to be reached in a day trip. 30 mins. by car south you are in the Montafon valley which is a great area for sum
