the place where Austria meets Switzerland

by ada

I can’t seem to be able to catch up with this blog anymore – eight months have passed since I visited Hohenems. It’s about time to either give up on this blog or start posting again. Let’s try the latter, okay?

Hohenems, the birth place of Salomon Sulzer (more on that soon), also happens to be a border town to Switzerland, which is double win :o) Only fifteen minutes walk from the town center gets you to this practical but not very charming commercial area:

Hohenems Swiss border

Here you can either pass the abandoned border control buildings and continue along the traffic over the bridge to Diepoldsau…

or you can walk down along the Old Rhine…

…and do something…

…much better:

…you can swim over to Switzerland!

Or, if you (like me) haven’t yet figured out the Nr.1 rule of the Vorarlberger Summer, which is always wear your swimsuit under your regular clothes, you can just hang your feet in shallow waters…

…and collect freshwater mussel shells…

…of which there are plenty.
