Gravelbiking & Bikepacking

Outside in the Alps

Vorarlberg and the Bregenzerwald, where the Hotel Bären is centrally located, is a great gravel destination with varied tours of flowing forest paths, racy gravel roads and mountain routes with great views. But the best thing is: a delicious snack is never far away!
