Dornbirn and Vorarlberg offer many cultural and natural attractions. Several options for a social event are possible, from visiting an alpine dairy kitchen and museum to visiting an internationally recognized art exhibition. After the social event, we propose to have a "Dinner with a View". There are several options for restaurants located in spots that offer an excellent view over the Rhine valley or the Lake Constance and which are either accessible by cable car, public transport, or organized transport.

The social event will soon be announced.
