The Liechtenstein Panorama Trail (sign post 66) is a classic hike in Liechtenstein. As part of a 3 to 4 day tour, it combines the experience of magnificent flower filled mountain ridges, mountain huts, and summits with panoramic views from Rätikon to Lake Constance.

The second stage leads from Steg to the Gafadura hut. The path is easy, offers great views and takes you past the Silum alp, at first on the Panorama Trail and then along the same path as the Via Alpina that follows the Fürstensteig, one of the most daring paths of the Rätikon. The path, carved into the cliffs, winds between bizarre rock formations taking you higher and higher until the view opens onto the Voralberg forest at the Gaflei saddle. Partly on the east side, partly on the ridge, the Panorama Trail rises to the summit cross on the Gafleispitz and reaches the promising views of the Kuhgrat. After descending the Garsellikopf a secured steep path awaits to take you across the flanks of the Drei Schwestern (Three Sisters). Then the road descends with a view of Säntis to a well-earned rest in the Gafadura hut.

 

Alternative A: Steg - Sücka

Safety information

Children hiking on the Fürstensteig should be secured with a rope and narrow parts of the path ascended with care. The Fürstensteig and Three Sisters segments of the tour are only suitable for sure-footed hikers without a fear of heights; otherwise an alternative would be advised.
