The mountain for young and old alike
At an altitude of 2,000 metres visitors can enjoy an unrivalled panorama stretching from Lake Constance to the Tyrolean Alps, from the Allgäu to the Arlberg, including over 300 mountain peaks. Access to the mountain is via a comfortable gondola.
The Diedamskopf provides a wonderful selection of walking for the whole family. Wandering along any of the easy well-surfaced footpaths towards the summit, or any of the many other inviting walking routes, you will discover alpine flowers, butterflies and much more besides. Certain paths are even suitable for buggies. But the Diedamskopf also has plenty in store for more ambitious walkers. Numerous half-day or full-day hiking trails start or finish here, offering a challenging mountain experience for walkers of all tastes and abilities.
Perfect for paragliders
Diedamskopf – the fliers' mountain
It’s not only the view that makes the Diedamskopf so popular among visitors to the Bregenzerwald. It has also made quite a name for itself among paragliders and hang-gliders as the fliers’ mountain. And rightly so. This is the ideal place to take-off for long-distance flights towards the Lech valley and the Arlberg region.
The very best flying conditions are normally from October to March. During this period it is possible to land directly in the car park at the bottom station of the cable car, right next door to Hotel Elisabeth. Due to prevailing valley winds, conditions can be somewhat turbulent in summer.

Sunset trips with summer buffet and musical entertainment
It is said that if you haven’t seen the sun set from the Diedamskopf, you’ve not seen the Bregenzerwald. A romantic sunset trip is undoubtedly an amazing experience.
Bathed in the oblique light of the setting sun, the unrivalled view from the Diedamskopf over Lake Constance and the 300 alpine peaks is indescribably beautiful. Start off the evening in the panoramic restaurant with a generous summer buffet offering a selection of guaranteed to make every food lover’s mouth water.
As the sun slowly sinks towards the horizon the anticipation grows, and before long you can experience the full natural glory of the spectacle from the summit of the Diedamskopf. Watching the sun set on the Diedamskopf has to be one of the most romantic ways of rounding off a perfect summer’s day.
