Obstacle-free route: Bendern-Schaan

This route starts in Bendern in the Principality of Liechtenstein and leads mainly along the Rhine dam. The wide, smoothly surfaced path and breathtaking views make this an ideal leisure area.

This tour offers a true scenic treat for the eyes alongside the stately River Rhine. You soon arrive in Bendern on the banks of the river. From Bendern to Schaan, both villages with an interesting history, an easy, level path runs alongside the river on the elevated Rhine dam. 

Views extend far beyond the course of the river, with the open, verdant riverside meadows crowned by the Alps on the horizon. Although the route is extremely popular, you feel relaxed and in harmony with the lushness of nature all around you. Wide fields and colourful meadows, the mountains in the background and the nearby water – all create a perfect natural image and an agreeable ambiance. 

Wooden benches offer the chance of a rest along the way. In Schaan you briefly leave the river for the countryside. Once again you enjoy tranquil scenery, passing between fields and groves of trees to the village. You spend your time in green countryside as far as the eye can see and can return home refreshed and relaxed.

Barrier-free return journey / public transport 
From Schaan railway station you reach the support stations of Sargans and Buchs SG in low-floor buses (both Route 12).
