Get away from it all with the Karren cable car!
From the valley station at 464 metres above sea level, you can climb up to 976 metres above sea level - you can take the cable car high up! The cable car in Dornbirn is a popular excursion destination in Vorarlberg and the Lake Constance region.
Wonderful hiking routes, fantastic views over the Rhine Valley - even in the evening when the sea of lights glistens deep down. The Karren is a popular meeting place in the region. On the one hand, beautiful hiking trails have their starting point here, on the other hand, it is particularly easy to live in the panorama restaurant at 976 metres. Whether you want to go out for a bite to eat or just get a taste of the mountain air: In five minutes, the cable car takes you high above the roofs of the city and Vorarlberg and offers you a wonderful view: the entire border triangle by day, the sea of lights by night.
All hiking trails are also available as interactive hiking maps on our homepage.
