Escape from the daily routine with the Karren cable car
Wonderful hike and walking routes, breathtaking viewes of the Rhine Valley – and evenings with a glittering sea of light from down below.
The Karren is a very popular meeting place in this region. It is the starting point for many beautiful walking tours and is also very relaxing to stay at the top of Karren mountain at an altitude of 976 meters whether to have a meal at the Panoramarestaurant or just enjoy the view. In just five minutes the cable car will take you above the roofs of the town, giving you a beautiful view from the overlook/observation point of three countries during the day and night.
At the "Karren-Kante" you can enjoy an incredible view of the Rhine Valley, the Swiss mountains, and Lake Constance. On the „Karren-Kante“ balcony, which is 12 meters long and was constructed in 2016, visitors can feel nature up close and personal, virtually standing on thin air.
