Doren is a municipality in the district of Bregenz in the Austrian state of Vorarlberg.

Geography[edit]

The municipality of Doren is located in the northwest of the Bregenz Forest. The municipality of Doren lies about two-thirds on the south side of the Sulzbergstock, which belongs to the Molasse basin, and to one third on Sulzbergstock's north side.

The community boundary of the community is formed by the three rivers Weißach, Bregenzer Ach and Rotach. Doren borders five other Vorarlberg communities in the district of Bregenz (clockwise, starting in the north): Sulzberg, Krumbach, Langenegg, Alberschwende and Langen bei Bregenz.

Doren is a member of the German-Austrian community project Naturpark Nagelfluhkette. The landscape is characterized by forests, natural monuments, numerous waters, raised bogs and biotopes.

Culture[edit]

Parish church Doren[edit]

Chapel in Brenden (Doren)

In 1823, the church was built according to plans of the District Office Bregenz. Presumably, there was no predecessor. The consecration took place in 1826 and in 1853, it was raised to parish church.

Coat of arms[edit]

The coat of arms was created in 1969 inspired by a design by the Schruns artist and heraldist Konrad Honold. It shows the two rivers Weißach and Bregenzerach, the deer antler stands for hunting.
