A summer tango holiday in the mountains of the "Bregenzer Wald" in Austria with Judita Zapatero and Diego "El Pájaro" Riemer: not only fantastic tango classes to enjoy but also the chance for walks and excursions in the magnificent landscape that nature has kindly provided. The Bregenzer Wald landscapes are balsam for the eye – and the soul. A shapely combination of gently undulating hills, expansive plateaux, romantic river valleys, and impressive peaks – ideal for active people and lovers of nature. Included in the price is the "Bregenzer Wald Card", which entitles you to free use of cable cars, swimming pools and public transport in the Bregenzerwald.
We are very pleased, that again Fausto Carpino & Stephanie Fesneau from Italy will teach again at Bregenzer Wald. You will be delighted by their refreshing pleasant nature and didactically well-structured teaching. The courses take place either in the morning or late afternoon so that there is sufficient time to explore the beautiful area. The lessons are taught in English. After dinner, we continue with an intimate Milonga.
Accommodation is in the Bio Hotel Schwanen in Bizau. The Hotel Schwanen is officially certified as an organic hotel. What is outstanding is the exquisite quality in the Restaurant (14 Gault Millau Points) and the relaxed atmosphere of the family run hotel.
There is waiting for you a healthy revitalizing breakfast in the morning and in the evening a delicious 4-course menu (with a choice of a vegetarian menu).
The restaurant is bright and tastefully decorated and has a lovely garden terrace where you can enjoy delicious afternoon apricot dumplings (“Marillenknödel”) and Austrian strudel specialties.
The hotel also has a choice of varied rooms available.
The rooms in the Schwanen are classically decorated with silver fir and furnished with simple but comfortable modern furniture by Bregenz craftsmen. The rooms differ in size and location: Schwanen I is about 30 square meters, Schwanen II about 22-24 square meters. Both room types look towards Kanisfluh or towards Hirschberg. The rooms Schwanen III faces the street, which is not busy at night, as Bizau is located in a small valley.
The room allocation takes place after booking, first come first serve.
Alternatively, the accommodation can be requested in well-equipped apartments. These are located about 5 minutes walk from the "Schwanen" away. The meals are taken together with the group in the hotel "Schwanen". The travel price corresponds to the room type Schwanen II.

Note on the Bregenz Festival:
Tickets are only valid on the day of the scheduled performance and are only valid for the Seebühne. The Bregenz Festival endeavours to hold the performance on the Seebühne even if the weather is doubtful and would like to point out that, if necessary, performances will also be held on the Seebühne in the event of rain, or that there may be delays or interruptions. In the event of a transfer to the Festspielhaus, category 3 ticket holders will be refunded the ticket value if the performance on the Seebühne did not take place or was shorter than 60 minutes. The tickets should be booked at the same time as the travel registration for the Tango Journey, as we receive special conditions as a group (ticket price 118,- €).
Tango with Judita and Diego:
There will be a total of 10 hours of classes and practicas for experienced dancers with Judita Zapatero and Diego "El Pájaro" Riemer. The focus will be on clear leading and active following.

The courses take place in the mornings or afternoons, so that there is still time to explore the beautiful area. There are two course groups, some Practicas take place together for all participants after dinner followed by a Miolnga.
