However, Dornbirn has much more to offer than just that. Along the banks of the Ach, you reach the spectacular Rappenlochschlucht, a recommended outing which certainly impresses guests. In Gütle, the industrial history meets a spectacle of nature. From here, paths take you to the unique vantage point above the Rhine Valley, the Karren and into hidden Ebnit, only a stone’s throw from beautiful mountain landscapes. The industrialisation of Vorarlberg was particularly successful in Dornbin. The mid-19th century saw numerous companies setting out on what would become a success story which has left behind urban traces. This has not changed – the competitiveness of the companies continues to leave its mark on the architecture and the lifestyle of the people even today. You must not miss the site of the closed-down Rüschwerke in the town park which have mutated into a cultural hotspot. Adapted with a great deal of sensitivity and stellar architecture, the old fabric of the former factory buildings form a lovely contrast to the modern art in the Kunstraum Dornbirn and the interactive inatura nature show which are both at home here.
