Hiking: Liechtenstein

Big little country

While the Alpine Rhine forms the country's border with Switzerland in the west, steep peaks seal off the principality in the east. At first glance, Liechtenstein may seem very miniature, but the small country counts more than 30 mountain peaks, making it a true hiker's paradise.

Along the way, you'll discover sparkling mountain lakes, follow narrow high-altitude trails up to the highest peaks in the country, and visit charming alpine and mountain cabins. The eponymous capital and prince‘s seat is the starting point of this hiking trip, which promises a surprisingly diverse stay in the midst of a magnificent mountain world.

Itinerary

Luggage drop-off at the hotel. Directly from the center of Vaduz you hike up to the Prince's Castle and continue on pleasant forest paths with viewing spots to the ruins of the Wildschloss.

You follow the route of the Liechtenstein Trail across mountain meadows and scattered settlements to Triesenberg and return to Vaduz by bus. Today you can also visit the town of Vaduz and its treasures, as well as use your Liechtenstein Adventure Pass!

A wonderful loop on a beautiful panoramic mountain. On the explorer trail you hike on good alpine paths and narrow mountain trails past the rugged rock figures of the Three Capuchins over to the summit cross at 2'100 m!

Here, the view sweeps all the way to Lake Constance and the Swiss Alps. A hiking trail leads you up and down along the mountain flank back to the mountain village of Malbun, where a stroll through the village is worthwhile.

A true classic! The Fürstin- Gina- trail is the Liechtenstein dream tour par excellence. With the cable car you swing comfortably to the Sareiser Joch and hike over the summit ridge to the Augstenberg at over 2300m altitude.

A beautiful mountain path leads further to the Pfälzerhütte of the Liechtensteiner Alpine Club, located right at the Joch. Here a break on the sun terrace surrounded by the highest peaks is very rewarding. Those who still have energy can climb the Dreiländerberg at the border to Austria and Switzerland in the afternoon.

Arrival by train:
Leave the car at home! For every bike, biking or hiking tour in Switzerland, you will receive an SBB coupon per participant, which you can use to deduct CHF 10 from the ticket price for traveling by train. The reduction can be obtained in the SBB online store or in the SBB app. On many trips, we use the luggage counters at the stations at the beginning and at the end to hand over the suitcases. You can conveniently combine this right away when you arrive by train. If you are a GA owner, you can provide this information when booking. We will credit you the amount on the invoice. If you don't need the coupon for the trip itself, you can use it during the year. Unfortunately, a retroactive refund is not possible for administrative reasons.
