The mighty mountain is the home of myths such as the story of the Swedish soldier who got lost and wound up here during the Thirty Years’ War. In the part of the village called Übermellen, typical, old Bregenzerwald houses dominate, whereas Oberfeld’s villagescape is determined by contemporary residential buildings. Mellau is the only village in the region not to have its cemetery next to the church.
