It is an experience not to be missed: discover the historical highlights of the Principality of Liechtenstein on foot on the Liechtenstein Trail. Where else can you walk an entire country in just a few days and learn all about its rich, 300-year history at the same time? Awaiting the explorer are 75 kilometres full of exciting stories, sights, majestic views, idyllic spots to have a rest, and much more.
There are many ways to explore the Liechtenstein Trail. Experienced hikers with good fitness can complete the entire route in one day, though most walkers will want to take a little more time. We recommend breaking the Liechtenstein Trail up into several stages or choosing a section of the route for an enjoyable day hike.
