Around half of the Principality of Liechtenstein is mountainous, but despite this, the climate is very mild. A place full of opposites, culture, cuisine.
Our beautiful youth hostel is situated between Vaduz and Schaan. If you come cycling from Switzerland on the Rhine route, you'll find accommodation directly on the way here. 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.
