From Vaduz, the capital of the Principality of Liechtenstein, the Grüscha Trail leads past Vaduz Castle, through the princely forest to the Walser village of Triesenberg with its beautiful views.
From the bus stop in the centre of Vaduz, the Postgass road leads uphill through the pedestrianised zone past the Museum of Fine Arts and the Chamber of Treasures. At the Brasserie Burg, the path branches off steeply to the right into the Beckagässli and from there into the Haldenweg. The Haldenweg changes to a steep wooded slope, and from there the Schlossweg leads to the Fürst-Franz-Josef-Strasse. The path then leads directly past Vaduz Castle, the residence of the Princely Family, and offers good photo opportunities. Afterwards, the trail follows the mountain road uphill to a car park, until the Grüschaweg trail works its way up through a beech forest to the village of Triesenberg (884 metres), traditionally home to the Walser people.
From the village centre of Triesenberg, the trail follows the Tobelweg up to the hamlet of Rotaboda, where the descent leads down via the Frommenhaus back to Vaduz. (Distance: 5.2 km / Ascent/descent: 74 m)
For families: Take a tour with the Citytrain Vaduz (approx. 35 min.) or visit the the Walser Museum in Triesenberg.
