Liechtenstein travel guide
During summer the main thing to do in Liechtenstein are bike cycling and hiking. There plenty of trails suitable for day trips, in addition with a few longer treks. You can even take the chairlift from Malbun up to the top of Mt. Sareiserjoch (2000 m) and start the hike from there. Even though the mountains are not better in Liechtenstein than neighbouring Switzerland and Austria (they are actually smaller in Liechtenstein), the scenery is as pretty with jagged peaks and green alp meadows, where bell ringing cows are grassing.
Malbun (1602 m) is Liechtenstein's main ski resort. It's small village full of hotels and traditional alpine huts scattered at the end of a pretty valley with mountains on all sides. Though it's primary a winter resort, you don't have to skip it in summer, for there are many nice of trekking trails – and the chairlift runs too, for those who only want to enjoy the views and not the hike.
The castle for the Prince of Liechtenstein is perched on a mountainside overlooking the Swiss alps. Very symbolic, it's raised above the valley where Vaduz stretch out. The capital is just a few hundred meters wide, but several kilometers long. There are just a few fine and traditional buildings, the rest is a bland mess of squary boxes and concrete houses which finest quality is that they can withstand lots of snow. There is a fine walk up to the castle, which offer splendid views over Vaduz and across the River Rhine to Switzerland. However, Vaduz is the not reason to come to Liechtenstein, the mountains are.
