Every season has its own charm and determines the rhythm of life. The spring with its blossoms that bathe the landscape in brilliant white and fresh green, the summer that warms the lake and attracts people to the beaches and of course the autumn, the time of harvest.

Vines, orchards and hop gardens decisively shape the landscape and have replaced traditional cattle farming over the years. It was not until 1934 that the communities of Hemigkofen, Nonnenbach and Kressbronn merged to form the present community of Kressbronn. In the first documents of the St.Gallen monastery from 799 A.D., the names of villages from the hinterland are already mentioned.

From the 12th to the 18th century, the Counts of Montfort determined the fate of the surrounding communities, as well as large parts of what is now Vorarlberg. Especially in the 18th century they proved to be generous donors of several baroque chapels.

The modern Kressbronn of today has a good infrastructure for locals and vacation guests. They can find out everything they need to know about an eventful and relaxing vacation at the tourist information office in the old railroad station. Kressbronn offers everything a holidaymaker's heart desires, from a wellness hotel to numerous guesthouses, from farm vacations to a campsite right by the lake. There is a special cultural highlight every year at the Bregenz Festival, when a special ship departs from the Kressbronn landing stage directly to the festival stage and back again after the performance.

Families with children feel particularly well in Kressbronn, because for this the community was awarded the title of "family-friendly vacation resort" in the state competition of Baden-Württemberg. A varied and rich children's and family program from taster sailing, pony adventure days to the corn maze in summer make the vacation an experience for young and old.
