The steep slopes at the end of the Malbun valley surround the little resort of Malbun (1600 m) like an arena. The small scale of this little mountain village and the traffic-calming measures in the centre of the village make Malbun a particularly family-friendly resort. The children’s entertainment programme "Malbun Rascals" keeps children happy during high season.


The extensive network of mountain footpaths around Malbun leads you into an idyllic, virtually untouched natural landscape. The geography of this little country makes it an outstanding bikers’ destination, with lots of tricky dedicated trails and paths. An ideal starting point for hiking and mountain biking tours is the top of the chair-lift on the Sareiser Joch. Fun for the little ones is guaranteed at the children’s playground on the sunny panorama terrace of the mountain restaurant (2015 m) or at the Pet Donkey Zoo.

Distances are small in the “little country”. Vaduz is only 15 km away from Malbun: reason enough to enjoy the cultural offerings in the “little town” from time to time, even if you are holidaying in Malbun.

Halfway to Vaduz is Triesenberg, perched high above the Rhine valley. At the local history museum, you can find out about the history of this Walser settlement, where the locals still speak a well-preserved Walser dialect.
