From the centre of Triesenberg, the route first leads hikers to an eye-catching rock deposited here as the glaciers slowly retreated millions of years ago. The journey then continues to the listed farmstead settlement of Profatscheng. From here hikers can enjoy fantastic views of the Rhine valley. The trail leads steeply downhill through the forest past the ruins of Schalun Castle to Vaduz Castle, the most recognisable landmark in Liechtenstein. 

 

After passing Vaduz Castle, there is a short descent into the centre of Vaduz. In the town centre, the walk continues through the pedestrianised zone. Here it is well worth having a look at some of the many museums. After crossing the government district, the path leads past St. Florin’s Cathedral to the old bridge over the Rhine.  Hikers then pass the football stadium and return to the centre of Vaduz.
