Culture Centre

You are standing in front of a very unusual building. It is located on the south end of the town centre at a gateway between the settled area and the natural landscape.

Nenning House

On the street leading from Hittisau to Lingenau on the longitudinal axis to the church, there is a three storey wooden house that fits harmoniously into the landscape of the village.

  Taste 2  

Schwarz House

The Schwarz House is located just outside of the town centre on the north slope of the Hittisberg - or Hittis Mountain

  Taste 3  

Village Tour

  Taste 4  

Komma Bridge

This bridge, which is listed under a preservation order, is the oldest covered wooden bridge of this type in Vorarlberg. Because Silver Fir is very water resistant, these types of bridges are usually built with Silver Fir in our region.

  Taste 5  

Ließenbach Bridge

The Liessenbach Bridge crosses the Bolgenach River and was built in 1855. The bridge construction is a hanging truss and is meant to support heavy loads. Bridges of this type are interesting wooden constructions. There aren‘t many bridges like this left.
