Hiking Holidays Liechtenstein Cottage variant

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 2'300 m 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. Afterwards, you hike through the Täli and climb to the Tälijoch via high-altitude paths with great views. On the other side, hiking trails lead directly down to Malbun.

Tour character

You should have some hiking experience and good basic physical fitness for this trip. Surefootedness is crucial for the tours on the alpine high trails. There are only a few short, somewhat exposed sections. You can shorten and simplify most of the legs with public transport.
