Leisure facilites in Dornbirn


In the immediate surroundings of Dornbirn's city centre, visitors may want to visit the Rappenlochschlucht, one of the most impressive gorges in the eastern Alps. Great views of the area can be enjoyed from the top of the Karren, Dornbirn's local mountain.


Bödele is one of the most popular winter sports areas in the Rhine Valley and Lake Constance region. But also in summer this region is worth a visit with its beautiful natural landscape.
