Mountainbiking in Liechtenstein
Liechtenstein has many paths and forest trails that are ideal for mountainbiking. All official routes are clearly signposted.
The Gafadurahütte and Pfälzerhütte huts in the Alps are popular with mountainbikers looking for a challenge. The Gafadurahütte can be reached via Schaan and Planken. The Pfälzerhütte is accessible via the Saminatal Valley and Alp Gritsch.
