Austria Pure Culture

Swinging your way through town

Twice a year, central Dornbirn is filled with sound.

The next acoustic event gets started on Wednesday, 30 May 2018, when Hörbar Marktplatz brings the city in the heart of Vorarlberg to life.


The evening kicks off at 7:30 p.m. with a firework of sound from Roadwork direct on the market square. From here, the night owls fan out to the 16 different participating venues to twist and twirl the night away or just let themselves swing along to the music – and admission is free!


We’ve picked out 4 hot spots for you to visit during this awesome fest – or on any other day, for that matter ?:

“wirtschaft” | Roadwork

The Dinner & Comedy nights at “wirtschaft” regularly treat guests to good food combined with an evening of entertainment. And on any other night, entertainment and good humour are also a regular part of this wonderful locale. Located directly next to the WIFI business campus, “wirtschaft” is a popular meeting place during the day and the perfect location for an after-school or after-work beer in the evening.


TIK | Prinz Grizzley and his Beargaroos

The Theater im Kopfbau (TIK) is an open place for young culture, a stage for theatre and dance productions, a meeting place for art partners, a concert venue, an exhibition space – and it’s good for readings, too. The TIK has been around for more than 12 years and has hosted countless events in this time. This evening, it turns into a dancefloor for the city.

Vienna House Martinspark | DABADO

The hotel bar Im Ersten is not only a meeting place for hotel guests but also a popular choice for celebrating special occasions. The unique architecture creates a one-of-a-kind atmosphere in the open design bar on the first floor. In the past, the Friday Night Fever was a regular crowd-pleaser. Today, the hotel is still known for its breakfast and the romantic evenings with a Dinner4Two.




Anziehbar | Andi Joseph

You don’t need a lot of space to have a good time: Anziehbar is café, club and bar all rolled into one, and it offers everything you need for a fantastic evening on a minimum of space right in the middle of the market square. DJs regularly lay down tracks here to rock the alternative scene with their tunes. And thanks to the constantly changing cocktail offer, Anziehbar never gets boring – no matter how often you’ve been there.
