The Bregenz Forest Mountains, also the Bregenzerwald Mountains , are a range of the Northern Limestone Alps, named after the town of Bregenz. The Bregenz Forest Mountains are entirely located in the Austrian state of Vorarlberg.
The term Bregenz Forest Mountains refers to the range according to the Alpine Club classification of the Eastern Alps ; the term Bregenz Forest, by contrast, refers to a landscape or region which is part of the Bregenzer Ache basin area. As a result, the Bregenz Forest Mountains and the Bregenz Forest are not conterminous.
