Vaduz - Triesenberg: A Royal Hiking Tour


The Prince's castle high above Vaduz is not open for visitors, but you can walk right by it and through the forests of his estate and via the Grüscha path up to the ancient Walser settlement of Triesenberg. Every so often the light forest of beech trees opens up and provides a perfect frame for splendid views into the Rhine valley and onto the Alpstein massif on the Swiss side: a princely pleasure for every hiker.

From the car-free town (North of Hotel Real), ascend to the castle on a steep lane and walking paths (the Castle is not open for visitors). Enjoy the natural beauty of the birch tree woods. The hike is particularly beautiful in spring when the leaves start to sprout, or in October with colorful fall foliage. The old houses and stables in the hamlet of Triesenberg bear witness to the farming culture of the Walsers. Insider tip: From Litze an excursion to the hamlet of Wangerberg with its old hayfilled barns is really worthwhile. On another wide loop through the village of Triesenberg you can descend via Rotenboden and Frommenhaus to the Castle of Vaduz
