Travel Tips for Feldkirch
The Silvreta Nova Skiing area...
The Silvreta Nova Skiing area is a rather modest area for beginners to intermediates. The Pistes are rather easy to take. They have mostly chairlifts and cabins.
People are very friendly with a good sense of humor. The view from the topmost point with a bright cloudless sky over the hilltops.

Transferring through Feldkirch
To be honest, this page is here mainly to keep my country count accurate. Feldkirch was one stop in a weekend trip going right around Bodensee (Lake Constance). Click the Europe page for details.
I arrived by "postbus" from Vaduz via Schaan in Liechtenstein, walked around a bit and bought some food, and left by train for Lindau in Germany.
My Brief Moment in Feldkirch
"The Western Most City in Austria"
After my 2 hour sojourn in Liechtenstein, I drove back into Austria on my way to Klagenfurt. Bordering Switzerland, Feldkirch is an old city that is pretty much typical of the other smaller Austrian cities.
However, there was this old looking wind mill like old cobblestone builiding. That's about all I can tell you about this city.
I was in Feldkirch in February 2001. I have a friend living there and the main goal of the trip was to tell him Hello! Still, we did few things together an i really enjoyed my time there.
It was the time of Karnaval. We went to a bal all costumed. Actually, only women were costumed and would wear a mask untill midgnight. Guys were all well dressed and their goal, during that night, is to serves the women... i found it strange but funny.
There also was a Karnaval parade that i assisted. I was siting in a window when a witch passed by and took me off. HAHA!! The witche ran throught the streets carying me on its shoulder for a long distance! I was so surprised. It was a very funy parade, with a lot of cars and a lot of costums.
After the parade, my friend took me for a car ride in the mountains. It was beautyfull. All the sites... behing so hight and watching so fare!
I also went for a dinner in the castle of the town. The meal was good. I had a traditonal (i forgot the name!!) ... It was paned porc and it was good.
One night, i assisted a the 'fanfare' show. There was fanfares from all around (also some people from Switzerland where down... it's not very fare) and i enjoyed Glüwein and music for a moment.
People in Feldkirch are very nice!!
