Viennese Escapes
Hiking in Vorarlberg


Rappenlochschlucht
Rappenloch Gorge
Dornbirn, Vorarlberg


Rappenlochschlucht
Bridge over the gorge


Hiking in the gorge is possible
from the end of April through mid-November


Hiking boots and stamina are de rigueur
to master the steep cliffs safely -


Gorgeous views of waterfalls and a small lake
at the top of the climb will be your reward

Austria's westernmost province,

  3. Love those blue skies poking through and waterfalls, so refreshing. One of those places that looks like a hike to get to, but the views are beautifully worth it.
