Tipps bei gutem und schlechtem Wetter

Unser Tipps bei gutem Wetter sind die Rappenlochschlucht, die Alplochschlucht und der Karren. Der Hausberg ist ein beliebtes Ausflugsziel für Familien und Wanderer. Wer sportlich ist, wandert bis zur Bergstation, wer lieber auf dem bequemen Weg nach oben kommt, nimmt die Karrenseilbahn. So oder so hat man oben angekommen auf der Panoramaplattform einen eindrucksvollen Blick auf Dornbirn und den Bodensee. 

Das Wetter lädt nicht dazu ein nach draußen zu gehen? Macht nichts, hier kommen unsere Tipps für schlechtes Wetter: Die inatura - Erlebnis Naturschau Dornbirn lädt große und vor allem kleine Besucher zum interaktiven Museumsbesuch ein.
