View of the "old country": Webcam Dornbirn Marktplatz

Our Wehinger ancestors lived in the Marktplatz (market square) area of Dornbirn, Austria for hundreds of years (from the 1630s to at least the 1830s). According to the official Dornbirn web site:
The centre of Dornbirn, the “Marktplatz” (market square), is one of the most interesting and amusing places in Vorarlberg. Three and a half centuries of different architectural styles can be found here alongside each other, from the baroque “Rote Haus” typical of the Rhine valley, the Neo-Classical parish church of St Martin, the old-style German Luger-Haus and art nouveau facades, to the Bank-Quader built in the 1960s and the reproduction of old local house types like “Hirschen-Haus”. (Sehenwertes Dornbirn)
Now you can see it for yourself, with the Dornbirn Marktplatz Webcam. (just remember that it's is about 9 hours later than California time).
