Rheintal Bike

Rheintal Bike

In the saddle right across the whole Principality of Lichtenstein, with two spectacular mountain prizes: the Rheintal Bike route gives you exceptional views into the Rhine Valleyl between Buchs and Sargans.
The Principality of Liechtenstein does full justice to its name: its villages are enthroned high above the Rhine Valley and make the «Ländle» a popular place to live. The Rheintal Bike route leads from Sennwald across the Principality and into the Bündner Herrschaft region with its vineyards.

The Rheintal Bike route first runs relatively effortlessly along the fertile valley floor but then gradually gains height. The most energetic ascent starts immediately after Vaduz Castle, the stately residence of the Prince. A steep little road winds up to Triesenberg, until from high up you have superb views of the St. Galler Rheintal, the Alvier mountain chain and Toggenburg lying behind.

The second mountain prize on the Rheintal Bike route is St. Luzisteig, the pass from the Principality of Lichtenstein into the Bündner Herrschaft region. The huge fortress and mighty protective walls are proof of the military history of this pass, which was of particular strategic significance in World War II.

Combined with the Wildmannli Bike route, the Rheintal Bike route makes an attractive round tour starting and finishing in Sargans.
