Vaduz-Balzers-Weg

With Vaduz, the compact «Ländle» – as local people like to call the Principality of Liechtenstein – boasts a prestigious capital city. This is the start of an outstanding route that stretches as far as Balzers.
Vaduz blends past, present and a stunning landscape in unique fashion. You've hardly passed through the gates of this tiny capital city before you can already admire the first attraction - the medieval Vaduz Castle. This landmark of the Principality of Liechtenstein sits in suitably impressive and majestic style high above the city.

Just a stone's throw away and you're already in a lush green valley. Here you stroll past lavish, colourful meadows and spaciously laid-out fields, drinking in the impressive mountain world and fantastic long-distance views. The route continues through Triesen to Balzers and delivers pure relaxation in pristine countryside.

The route is ideal to escape from everyday life in the true sense of the word. You use easy paths, take a break wherever you feel like it and enjoy the captivating ambiance in the heart of an unforgettable picture-postcard idyll. And if you wish, at the end of the tour you can always round off your day with a refreshing drink in Balzers.
