LUSTENAU. A PLACE OF CONTRASTS
Lustenau has preserved its rural charm despite its large population and strong economy. It's the perfect place to live, work – and spend your holiday.
Situated directly on the Alpenrhein River between the mountains and Lake Constance, Lustenau borders on Switzerland (canton of St. Gallen) and is not far away from the Principality of Liechtenstein and Germany. Besides, it only takes two and a half hours to drive to Italy and France.
One might characterise Lustenau as a green "Großdorf", whose history has been shaped by spillovers from the Rhine for centuries. Flanked by the young Alpenrhein River on the west side, the municipality is still surrounded by vast reedlands.
