Fürstin Gina Path: Panoramic circular hike

Niederhorn high-altitude hike

The views are unto themselves on this challenging ridge hike connecting the Niederhorn (Peak 1963 m.a.s.l.), easily accessible by chairlift, with Mt. Gemmenalphorn (2061 m.a.s.l.) and which veers down towards Habkern. The snowy peaks of the Bernese Alps vie with the karst cliffs of Hohgant and the Prealpine Region.

The Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau are just as much in evidence during this hike as the ibex on the way to the Gemmenalphorn. The mountain path is easy at first but then becomes rather narrower, with lovely plunging views to the north as well. The direct descent starts out across a typical karst zone and then traverses forest and steep meadows to Habkern.

Fürstin Gina Path: Panoramic circular hike

In 1989 the government of the Principality of Liechtenstein declared the entire Alp region of their country, except for the grazing areas, an integral plant conservation area. From Malbun along the Fürstin Gina Path one can experience how diverse and exotic the alpine flora is. You are rewarded with beautiful views, such as from the peak of the Augstenberg (2222m) over the mountains of Liechtenstein, Austria and Switzerland.

In 1989 the government of the Principality of Liechtenstein declared the entire Alp region of their country, except for the grazing areas, an integral plant conservation area. From Malbun along the Fürstin Gina Path one can experience how diverse and exotic the alpine flora is. And not only that, but the most beautiful views await you from places such as the peak of the Augstenberg (2222m).
