Bregenz is a city in the far west of Austria, in the region of Vorarlberg, of which it is the capital. It lies on the banks of Lake Constance (in German: Bodensee) and is Austria's most important harbour on the Lake. Apart from that it is also an important hub for the railways.
The Bregenzer Festspiele take place in July and August, on several floating stages on the lake, and others in the city. There are perfomances of Opera's, Opperetta's and other classical music. The most famous of the stages is the Seebühne, where in 2008 scenes where filmed for the James Bond film, Quantum of Solace. The Seebühne can hold up to 7.000 people.
Bregenz has a moderate summer, and a moderate winter, if you compare it with the rest of the country. In winter the average temperatures drop just below 0 °C, during the night, but are still above 0 °C during the day. In summer the average temperature is around 23 °C - 24 °C. Most of the precipitation falls in the early summer (June and July), when there is around 200 mm of precipitation on average.
Bregenz itself doesn't have an airport, but the Bodensee Airport Friedrichshafen is not that far away. It lies on the German side of Lake Constance (Bodensee).
