Route description

The „Liechtensteiner Panoramaweg“ takes 3 to 4 days and leads from Malbun to Ruggell. You will have a view above the mountain Rätikon as far as Lake Constance.

Stage 1: Malbun – Steg

13km (10mi), time: 7h

From Malbun walk to the cable car station at Sareiserjoch. You can take the cable car to get there. The path „Fürstin-Gina“ leads you up to Augstenberg. Next to the summit cross you will have a great view on the mountain chains „Falkniskette“ and „Schesaplanastock“. Afterwards descend on a steep and rocky path to hut Pfälzerhütte. A detour to Naafkopf is totally worth it. Pfälzerhütte is suitable to stay overnight. Alternatively you can walk towards the northern slope of mountain Naafkopf and as far as valley Saminatal. From there you get to the hamlet Steg, where you are welcome to stay at guest house Sücka or hotel Steg.

Stage 2: Steg- Gafadura

12km (8mi), time: 7h

The second part of the hike starts in Steg and guides you over Alp Silum Fürstensteig. The path is hewn out of the rock and is known as one of the most venturous paths on mountain Rätikon. At the summit cross on Grafleispitz take the ridge Kuhgrat and enjoy the stunning backdrop while you walk up to steep-track Drei-Schwestern-Steig. Continue to hut Gafadurahütte, where you spend the second night.

Stage 3: Gafadura- Ruggell

19km (11,8mi), time: 7h

From hut Gafadurahütte start descending to Planken. Enjoy the amazing view while you hike down on winding roads and mountain trails. Now descend steeply, through a forest until you reach Nendeln.
