From nearest airport Friedrichshafen follow B30/B31/A96 towards Lindau, then A96 as far as Dornbirn Nord (exit 14) then the scenic L200 Bregenzerwald Landstrasse passing through a dozen or so villages including Mellau, Au, Schoppernau, Shrocken then finally Warth.
From Zurich (175km) follow A1/A4/E41 to St Gallen then A13 Lustenau then Dornbirn and L200 as above. Although driving from Zurich is 70km farther than the journey from Friedrichshafen, there are plenty more flights into and out of Zurich and it’s an easy journey.
Driving from Innsbruck via the most direct route is a little shorter and seemingly quicker than from Zurich, but it’s a more complicated route via Reutte and Lechtal , most of it on slower B roads, with greater risk of being held up by slow traffic, especially in bad weather.
Getting to Bregenzerwald from the airport is usually quickest by car and having a car will come in handy if you want to explore other villages and ski areas nearby at Dam?ls-Mellau and Diedamskopf at Au-Schoppernau, but if you don’t have access to a car there is a free ski bus service.
Road closure: Note that you cannot drive between Lech and Warth in winter (the road is closed because of the risk of avalanches) and hence you can only drive to Bregenzerwald via the Arlberg in summer.
