45 signs provide information on everything from archaeological finds to the history of the five municipalities in the Unterland, the surrounding landscape and local myths and legends. The Historical Eschnerberg Trail leads around the peaceful forest to Schellenberg, where hikers can enjoy marvellous views of the Rhine valley, the Rätikon massif, the Alvier chain of mountains and the imposing summit of the Alpstein.

Author’s recommendation

The village of Schellenberg is also home to the oldest house in Liechtenstein (dating back to the 16th century), where visitors can see the interior of a typical farmhouse from around 1900.

 

For families: There is a barbeque spot near the ruins in Neu-Schellenberg.
