The Falknis is the westernmost peak in the Rätikon massif, located at 2560 metres above sea level on the border between Liechtenstein and Switzerland. From the Liechtenstein side, the Falknis can be reached from Steg via a demanding alpine trail.
Distance 29.8 km
To reach the Falknis mountain, first descend from the Rappenstein ridge towards Mazorahöhe. After reaching Mazorahöhe at around 2000 metres above sea level, a very steep and demanding mountain path climbs over the Guschasattel and the Falknishorn to the summit of the Falknis. There, magnificent views await. On the other side of the Rhine Valley, the peaks of the Glarus Alps as well as the Churfirsten and Säntis peaks in the Alpstein massif. To the north, the view even extends beyond Lake Constance. The way back is again via the Rappenstein ridge, from where a narrow path leads to Alp Gapfahl. The path then turns into a wide dirt road that winds its way down. At the first turn-off, the trail heads left into a hiking trail and follows the Liechtenstein Panorama Trail (trail number 66) to the Berggasthaus Sücka mountain in and from there down to the starting point in Steg.
