Escape the daily routine with the Karren cable car
Wonderful hike and walking routes, breathtaking view 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 hiking routes. It is also very relaxing to stay at the top at an altitude of 976 meters whether to have a meal at the panorama restaurant 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.

Rappenloch- and Alploch Gorge
The mountain area behind Dornbirn off us two very spectacular jewels of nature, hidden but well known beyond the region – the Rappenloch and the Alploch gorge. For ten thousands of years the water of the Dornbirner Ach river has eaten its way through the limestone turning it into these two wild romantic ravines. Today it is an awe inspiring sight for the visitors watching the water rushing through the rocks. Adventurous footbridges take you through the gorge and past extraordinary rock formations.
