Grüschaweg

From the Residence of the Principality of Liechtenstein, the romantic Grüscha Way leads through the Princely Forest to the panoramic Walser high-altitude village of Triesenberg and then via the hamlet of Rotaboda back to Vaduz.
In Vaduz we first enjoy the calm atmosphere of the traffic-free shopping, restaurant and art boulevard «Städtle». From «Städtle», a narrow path wends its way up the steep forested slope to a small observation platform. From there the hiker has fabulous views of Vaduz and its environs. Schlossstrasse continues as far as Vaduz Castle, which thrones high above Vaduz on a rocky outcrop. The Castle is the residence of the Princely Family.

Once we have left Vaduz Castle behind us, the path enters the forest. In the tranquil Princely Forest, the Grüscha Way meanders slowly up the slope in the form of a gentle mountain path, leading to the mountain village of Triesenberg. A house in the centre of the village, over 400 years old, has been transformed into the Wohnmuseum (Museum of Living). The refurbished Walser Museum tells the story of the lives of the ancient Walser population.

From the village centre the route continues for some time along the WalserSagenWeg, which evokes the sagas, legends and history of the Walser Community in Liechtenstein. Hikers will encounter bizarre figures here such as the «Doggi» (a mythical being which comes to make mischief in the night), the «Wildmannli»(«Wild Man») or the «Feuerroten Geissbock» («Fire Red Billy Goat»), and will discover who the «Night People» were. At intervals, information boards along the route relate stories from the huge wealth of sagas, and provide local knowledge about the mountain community. Via the hamlet of Rotaboda the signposted descent then leads via Frommenhaus to Vaduz Castle and back to the Market Square in Vaduz.
