Daily stage Nendeln to Ruggell
This stage leads from Nendeln via Eschen and Bendern-Gamprin to Ruggell in northern Liechtenstein.
Passing the train station in Nendeln we reach the Eschen/Mauren sports park and from there continue into the centre of Eschen. The trail then climbs slightly via Güdigen to Aspen and from there back down towards the village centre. Now the path rises again and we pass the Rofenberg Chapel. After stopping to enjoy the beautiful view at Krest we follow a section of the Historical Eschnerberg Trail, which eventually leads down to Bendern church hill and from there to the post office in Bendern. Bendern church hill has probably been inhabited for 4000 years. It is likely that a church existed there as early as the 6th century.
The route then takes us from Bendern along the Rhine to the Grossabünt outdoor leisure park in Gamprin. This is an excellent place to stop off for a meal and enjoy the views of the large swimming lake. After heading into the village centre of Gamprin we then hike along a track through the Kratzera forest to the centre of Ruggell. Ruggell is the northernmost municipality in Liechtenstein.
