Ausblick Karren, Dornbirn © Karrenseilbahn Dornbirn GmbH

A day in Dornbirn

As a former centre of industry, Vorarlberg’s largest city has a lot to offer and many stories to share.

Vorarlberg’s largest city presents an irresistible flair, especially when the weekly farmer’s market takes place against the picturesque backdrop of the market square.

Discover and taste local products before going on a guided tour of the city. As a former centre of textile production, Dornbirn is characterised by the villas, town houses and mills that the factory owners built. Cultural facilities, clubs and even museums, such as the ‘inatura’ interactive nature show, have now frequently taken over the former production sites. A trip to this museum is always a great experience for nature lovers and is the thing to do when the weather is bad.

Afterwards round off the outing with a cable-car trip up Dornbirn’s local mountain – the Karren. For enjoying an extensive and delicious lunch at the panorama restaurant. Capturing the view of the prospering Rhine Valley, the nearby Swiss mountains and Lake Constance in a photo is a must. Specially installed selfie-points and viewing platforms have been set up for visitors with a head for heights.

And then it’s time for an afternoon dedicated to beer. The world of beer that was created by the long-standing ‘Mohrenbräu’ company in 2016 is the place for visitors to interactively experience everything about the business’ founding family and history as well as about how it makes beer. Guided tours and tastings with qualified beer sommeliers may, of course, be booked in advance!
