The Fürstensteig Trail and the path over the Three Sisters are two famous hiking routes in Liechtenstein’s high mountains connected by an exposed ridgetop track offering majestic views of the surroundings. The Kuhgrat at 2123 metres is the highest point of the hike. It offers sweeping vistas taking in the peaks and valleys of both Liechtenstein itself and the neighbouring countries of Switzerland and Austria.

The tour can be done in both directions. 

 

Alternative routes:

A: Bypass the Fürstensteig Trail via Bargellasattel ridge

B: Bypass the Three Sisters via Garsella Alpe/Garsella Eck
