Signs provide information on everything from archaeological finds to the history of the five municipalities in the Unterland, the surrounding landscape and local myths and legends The Historical Eschnerberg Trail leads around the peaceful forest to Schellenberg, where hikers can enjoy marvellous views of the Rhine Valley, the Rätikon massif, the Alvier chain of mountains and the imposing summit of the Alpstein.
The new parish church (built in 1963 and today a listed building), the post office, the municipal hall, the school, the Convent of the Missionary Sisters of the Precious Blood and the outpost of the Liechtenstein National Museum in Vaduz form the heart of Schellenberg.
