Stage planning

There are many ways to explore the Liechtenstein Trail. Experienced hikers with good fitness can complete the entire route in one day, though most walkers will want to take a little more time. We recommend breaking the Liechtenstein Trail up into several stages or choosing a section of the route for an enjoyable day hike.

This is our suggestion on how to divide the Liechtenstein Trail into stages. At the end of each stage you will find a range of accommodation and restaurants in or near the place where you stop for the night. The Liechtenstein Trail can also be completed in the opposite direction, from north to south.
