The Gafadura Hut (1428 metres above sea level) of the Liechtenstein Alpine Club is a popular destination for evening excursions or leisurely half-day hikes. The ascent leads largely through shady forest.
Distance 12.8 km
Highest point1,428 m
Lowest point456 m
The Gafadura hut is also the starting point for the long-distance hiking trail “Via Alpina” or for the ascent to the Drei Schwestern.
Four routes lead to the Gafadura Hut: An easy hike along the track (car-free) (Alternative route A) or the steeper marked mountain path from Planken. From the valley, extended, marked mountain paths lead to the Alpine Club’s popular hut: From Nendeln in 3 hours or on the long ascent from Schaanwald via Alpzinken and the Paula hut (not in operation) in 3 to 4 hours.
Alternative Routes A: Via the track from Planken to the Gafadura hut.
B: Via the hiking trail from Maurerberg to Schaanwald.
The short ascent to Sarojasattel is rewarded with a magnificent view across the Walgau and to Walserkamm. Long evenings on the hut terrace and the sunset behind the Alpstein are particularly attractive experiences.
Going on a tour requires careful planning. We recommend that you discuss the routes and weather conditions with the local information points in advance. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be closed or interrupted.
