    In Dornbirn it is possible to take a gondola up to a beautiful viewpoint called the "Karren". From here you can see all of Dornbirn and the surrounding landscape, including the Alps and the Boden sea.

    Have lunch at the modern restaurant at the top of the "Karren", and then walk back down again. The walk will take about two hours, and along with the view you will see lush green fields and old Austrian farm houses.

    Near the Hohenems parish church stands the palace belonging to the Counts of Waldburg-Zeil (1562), in which two manuscripts of the "Nibelungenlied" were found in 1755 and 1779. During the 17th C. a Jewish community settled in Hohenems, and in 1771-72 a synagogue was built, which now serves as the fire-brigade headquarters. From the palace a footpath leads up in 40minutes to the ruined 12th C. castle of Alt- Ems (713m/2,339ft) and to Glopper castle (Neu-Ems; 14th C.). From the top there are superb views over the Rhine valley to Lake Constance.

    Favorite thing: Near the motorway on the western edge of the town of Dornbirn lie the modern trade fairgrounds. Since 1949 export and trade fairs have been held here every year in late July and early August.
