You can't miss the Hirschen Schwarzenberg, an 18thC inn opposite the church on the main crossroads in the village. The whole of Schwarzenberg is a national treasure, with its wooden-shingled houses so typical of the Bregenzerwald valley. Few hotels succeed in being all things to all people but the Fetz family, who have been here for 100 years, manage to do just that. Locals pop in for a drink in the low-ceilinged Jägerstube but for special occasions book into the resturant, rated one of the best in the area.
  Families arrive in winter for ski holidays but during the summer the hotel is filled with couples. There is even a choice of style in bedrooms. The old house is traditional and romantic, with Louis-Philippe-style furniture. The new "Waldhaus" is designed in modern architectural style from the region. Rooms are larger in this modern annexe, with more of a country look. Colours here are delicate shades of purple, blue and green, with touches of bright pink or yellow. This is also where small business seminars are held, away from the other guests.
  Behind the village, the Hochälpelekopf is covered with ski runs; cross-country trails loop round the valley.
