Gutenberg Castle, which towers over Balzers, is visible from afar. After passing the medieval castle, the route leads through Balzers and on to Triesen. Hikers pass through the old part of the village and reach an area of land formerly home to the Jenny, Spoerry & Cie cotton-weaving mill. 

From the Kulturzentrum Gasometer the path leads steadily uphill to the Kapelle St.  Mamerten.  This is followed by the steep ascent to the Walser village of Triesenberg. The village centre lies at an around 900 metres above sea level. Triesenberg emerged from a Walser settlement in the 13th/14th century and has preserved its history and traditions over the years.
