Rappenlochschlucht

Rappenloch and Alploch Canyon

In Gütle, a district of Dornbirn, lie two of the largest gorges in Central Europe. The Rappenloch and the Alploch gorges. Boardwalks lead past breathtaking scenery. One hour is enough to hike from the starting point in the Gütle through the first gorge, past Lake Staufen and then through the Alpenloch Gorge to the Ebniter Straße. From there, buses run regularly back to the starting point, the former Hämmerle factory - now home to the Rolls Royce Museum.

Rappenlochschlucht open as far as the old bridge
The Rappenloch gorge is currently accessible from the Gütle up to the level of the old Rappenloch bridge. After that, you have to change to the bypass to get to Lake Staufen or to the hiking route at the Karren.
