Around half of the Principality of Liechtenstein is mountainous, but despite this, the climate is very mild. A place full of opposites, culture, cuisine.
Principality of Liechtenstein
Our beautiful youth hostel is situated between Vaduz and Schaan. If you’re travelling along the Rhine Route by bike from Switzerland, you’ll find accommodation directly on the route here from Easter 2021. For those who don't have to hurry on, the region has a few highlights in store. In Vaduz itself you can visit Vaduz Castle, which dates back to medieval times, and look down over the historic little town with its famous museums from 120 metres above. There's plenty of nature to be found on the circular "Fürstensteig" mountain path, and in Malbun you can watch birds of prey up close or even set out on a hike with falconers and golden eagles.
