Karren, Cable Car, Dornbirn


Get away from it all with the Karren cable-car. Superb hiking trails, the Rhine Valley beneath you and in the evening, the valley sparkles like a sea of light. The Karren is a popular meeting place in the region and starting point for some marvelous hiking trails.

The Panorama Restaurant at 976 meters is worth a visit.
Whether you would like to go and eat something or just enjoy the fresh mountain air – it only takes five minutes for the cable-car to take you high above the city rooftops where a wonderful panorama awaits you: the magnificent view of three countries during the day, a sea of lights by night.

Karren-Kante with Selfie-Point
As the first excursion destination in Vorarlberg, the Karren recently added a 12-meter-long bridge. On the new lookout platform visitors can enjoy an impressive all-round view. Standing above all, the view sweeps from the ridge across the vastness of the Rhine valley, the Lake Constance past the Swiss mountains deep into the region of Vorarlberg.

The Panorama Restaurant – good food with a view! Experience excellent cuisine and a warm and friendly welcome at  976 meters above sea-level.
Whether with a superb multi-course menu in the glass restaurant, or with hearty Kässpätzle at the inn, the evening high above the city rooftops is sure to be remembered. It will certainly not only please the culinary night owl but also the hungry hiker and will be ideal for family parties and corporate groups alike. Relax and enjoy a delicious meal and a fantastic panorama of the Swiss mountains, the Rhine Valley and Lake Constance.

Mineral Health Spa, St. Margrethen (CH)


Leave stress behind and immerse yourself at the Mineralheilbad St. Margrethen, gathering new strength and energy.

Relaxation and recovery in 36 degrees warm mineral water
The generous outdoor area of the Mineralheilbad is accessible all year round. Here, guests experience the pleasant effects of the mineral water in massage and whirlpool basins.

On the way to St. Margrethen, it is filtered naturally, simultaneously absorbing valuable minerals and trace elements such as iron, magnesium, calcium or potassium from the stone layers. At the Mineralheilbad, you relax and recover literally in natural mineral water. More nature is hardly possible.

Exceptional experiences in the sauna world
In the generous sauna world of the Mineralheilbad, three sauna concepts with various treatments are available. In the surroundings of a unique design concept, sauna facilities such as the steam bath, the organic sauna and the classic Finnish sauna offer everything: Special infusion ceremonies, acoustic journeys with sound bowls, adventure showers with flavour, an open fire in the Meridian Lounge, a generous outdoor terrace and much more

Inatura, Museum, Dornbirn


The inatura museum in Dornbirn offers something for everyone, and does this in a particularly unusual way, because here touching is expressly encouraged. The main focus is on trying, playing, experiencing and understanding. The journey takes you through the different habitats that are characteristic of Vorarlberg: mountain, forest and water. In the final section of the museum, we go beyond the realms of possibility and in the truest sense of the word, go inside ourselves. inatura makes it possible to actually visit our bodies.

Interactive and multimedia presentations demonstrate the exciting links between the life and interactive zones and provide an insight into the wonder of nature, People and their technical achievements. A fascinating experience. It is not surprising, therefore, that inatura is considered to be one of Europe‘s most modern natural history museums.

Jewish Museum, Hohenems


The permanent exhibition of the Jewish Museum Hohenems in the Heimann-Rosenthal Villa tells the story of the Jewish community from its beginnings in the 17th century to the end after 1938.

The exhibits tell of a life between local belonging and transnational family networks; they tell about migration and home, hope, success and loss, persecution and escape routes. The exhibit includes perspective on the new beginning of survivors after 1945 well as debates about memory and forgetting, and the Hohenems Diaspora, the perspective of descendants all over the world. Visitors are invited to move between the historical timeline of events and challenges, and the cycle of life and the Jewish year — and to confront questions that are still relevant today.
