The route climbs steadily through Alt-Vaduz to the Red House. From there you have a wonderful view of Vaduz Castle. After passing the University of Liechtenstein, the path becomes flatter and leads to a debris flow (known in Liechtenstein as Rüfe) and then to the centre of Schaan.

 

From there the route leads up to the St. Elisabeth Nunnery before a short, flat section to the Gamanderhaus. From the Gamanderhaus there are now about 300 vertical metres of climbing to be completed to Planken, Liechtenstein’s smallest municipality.  From here you can enjoy magnificent views of the Rhine Valley. The stage ends with a very steep descent on a mountain trail down to Nendeln.
