The Frutz River is a 19 km long river, which flows in western direction through the "Laterns" Valley in the area of Feldkirch to the Rhine. At Rankweil the river divides into a side and main arm. The smaller one has an own name called "Ehbach". Near the mouth both arms merge again into one arm and then merge with the Rhine.
