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.

Day 1: Arrival with optional overnight stay

Liechtenstein is easy to get to. A large number of motorways, train stations and airports connect the country to the rest of Europe, while an excellent public transport network makes travelling within Liechtenstein simple and hassle-free.



Once in Liechtenstein, you will find accommodation of all kinds: from exclusive hotels to mountain huts with dormitories. There is also a wide range of package deals and offering. There is an accomodation for every guest.
