The city of Dornbirn stands in the extreme west of Austria, just a few miles from the German and Swiss borders. It overlooks the eastern end of Lake Constance and the lakeside town of Bregenz is nearby. If you hire a car in Dornbirn there are plenty of choices for day-trips, from taking the journey to explore Liechtenstein to staying close by and touring around the lake. Bregenz Forest is located nearby and is considered one of the most beautiful in the country of Austria, so it is a definite must-see when in the area.
Dornbirn stands on the foothills of Mount Karren on the River Dornbirner Ach as it plunges down to Lake Constance. Visitors with a hire car in Dornbirn will be able to fully explore the city and its attractions. The best known attraction is probably the privately owned Rolls Royce Museum, which claims to have the world's biggest collection of the luxury car marque.
In contrast, many visitors walk to the top of Mount Karren. It takes two hours from the Main Square and the reward is the spectacular views at the top. There's a cable car instead if you lack the energy. Elsewhere look out for the Spielboden Arts Centre, the Inatura interactive museum about nature and Kunstraum modern art gallery.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
