Craftsmenship of the Region
In recent years an independent, design-oriented craft scene, parallel to modern architecture,
which is in high demand domesticly and abroad, has developed in the Bregenzerwald.
Around 90 innovative craftsmen – from carpenters to textile designers – have come together to display
their workpiees at the Werkraum Bregenzerwald.

The dialect of the Bregenzerwald is also called ‘Mundart’
The spoken dialects of the valleys in Vorarlberg have Alemannic roots,
and are reminiscent of Swiss-German and Swabian dialects.

Our Traditional Clothing
The Pride of the Local Women
The pleated Juppe with its filigree gold embroidery on the bodice and apron – in our dialect we
say “Müodôrë and Vöortuoh” – and the figurative, tightly strapped belts, make the costume so special, unique and beautiful.
