Holiday with your dog

Of course, man's best friends should not be missing on a dream vacation in the Vorarlberg Alpine region. An intensive time and shared experiences strengthen the bond between humans and animals and between mountains, a snow-covered winter wonderland and themed trails, there are ideal conditions for discovering the unique landscape on four paws.

Rules of conduct for dog and owner

So that both - you and your dog - can have an unforgettable holiday experience in the alpine region of Vorarlberg, there are a few points to consider. Here you will find all the necessary tips for a carefree stay in the region.

Dogs must be kept on a leash in these areas

  • In public transport (buses, trains, cable cars) and their stops
  • In public buildings and facilities
  • In public playgrounds
  • On cycle paths, walking and hiking trails and cross-country skiing tracks
  • On agricultural land

Checklist for your holiday with your dog

  • Leash and muzzle: Even on the mountain, certain rules apply and situations may arise from time to time that require a leash. It certainly doesn't hurt to have a muzzle with you.
  • Drinking water: Not only humans long for a glass of water after a strenuous hike, the dog should also be sufficiently supplied.
  • Food: Just like a thirst quencher, your dog should also be provided with sufficient food during a hike.
  • Towel: A small towel that can be used after a surprising rain shower or a well-deserved bath should not be missing either.
  • Dog excrement bags: Dog excrement should always be removed, not only in the valley but also on the mountain. It is important not to pollute paths and landscapes unnecessarily. Did you know that grazing animals can become seriously ill from dog excrement?
  • Tip: ROBIDOG - The dog toilet: You will find the green dog excrement disposal system at almost all walking and hiking trails in the Vorarlberg Alpine Region. Here you can immediately dispose of your dog's waste in a professional manner.
  • EU pet passport: Not only as a human being should you be able to identify yourself, your four-legged friend also needs proof of identity.

What can I trust my dog to do on holiday?

Dogs should do on holiday what they are used to doing at home. If the dog is used to a leisurely pace in everyday life and gets less exercise, it will not be a long-distance dog on holiday either. If you plan to hike in the mountains with your dog and know that he needs endurance for this, start getting the dog used to such distances early enough.

On the way with public transport

Bus & Train

On buses & trains, dogs travelling must be secured with a leash AND muzzle.
A dog always needs a ticket.
A day ticket costs EUR 1.90, a week ticket EUR 7.20 and a monthly ticket EUR 15.00.

Dogs can be taken free of charge and without a muzzle and leash.

  • If the dog is transported in a closed container.
  • For partner dogs for people with disabilities
  • For guide dogs, assistance dogs and dogs for the blind

Mountain cable cars

In the Brandnertal (Bergbahnen Brandnertal), in the Klostertal (Sonnenkopfbahn) and also in the Große Walsertal (cable car Sonntag-Stein) dogs are allowed and free of charge.

In general, leashes are compulsory in large-capacity gondolas and a muzzle is recommended.

Hikes with a dog

Spending time in the mountains together with your dog is not only fun, it also bonds you as a team. However, you should consider some of our tips before you start your hike.

The route should be chosen to suit the dog's health and fitness. Young dogs should have completed the growth phase. Hikes that are too long are a strain on bones and joints that are still growing.

Pay attention to signals from your four-legged friend. A dog cannot sweat, only pant. Breaks help against overheating: You can recognise an exhausted dog by a blue tongue.

We also recommend a chest harness instead of a collar when hiking in the mountains.

Now it's simply "WAU" - enjoy the most beautiful hiking trails in the region with your dog!
