Day 2: Bezau to Feldkirch (37 miles)

Sneak in a morning massage at the hotel’s popular spa (book in advance), which sources ingredients for its organic antiaging skin-care line from the nearby Bregenzerwald forest. The emphasis on local continues at breakfast with bakery-fresh bread, regional cheeses, and house-made jams. Before hitting the road, head to town for some shopping, and pick up a pair of handmade wooden clogs—made of untanned cowhide—at Devich (186 Ellenbogen, Bezau; 43-5514/2236). The blink-and-you’ll-miss-it town of Lingenau nearby is a must if only for cheese co-op Käsekeller (423 Zeihenbühl, Lingenau; 43-5513/42870), housed in a minimalist building also designed by Oskar Leo Kaufmann.
