The Pfälzer hut is found at 2108 meters above sea level, the highest destination for mountain bikers in Liechtenstein.
Distance 9.6 km
The bike tour begins in Steg and continues on a light slope to Valüna Valley. The climb towards Alp Gritsch and then on to the Pfälzer hut, begins beyond the alpine buildings. Only experienced bikers will manage the climb that begins once you have passed the Gritscher alp hut. The hill ahead with its imposing mountain scenery is your reward. This can be better enjoyed from the inn at the Alpine Associations cabin. The descent back to Steg follows the same route along a country path.
Food & drink
From mid May to mid October food and drinks are available at Alp Valüna.
From mid June to beginning of October food and accommodation are available at the Pfälzer hut.
