The Liechtenstein Panoramaweg (sign post 66) is a classic hike in Liechtenstein. As part of a 3 to 4 day route, it combines the experience of magnificent flower-filled mountain ridges, mountain huts, and summits with panoramic views from Rätikon to Lake Constance.

The series starts with the magnificent Princess Gina Trail. The chairlift from Malbun to the top station at the panoramic restaurant «Sareiserjoch» is highly recommended: An alternative would be to take the path used for baby carriages and signed as the transport road. The Princess Gina Trail follows the ridge path with its beautiful views, up to the summit cross on the Augstenberg, which is the highest point of the Liechtenstein Panoramaweg. From there, it descends down a steep and rocky path to the charming Pfälzer hut, which is an ideal location for the first overnight stop. If weather conditions permit, the next morning, sure-footed hikers without a fear of heights can treat themselves to a side trip and climb the Naafkopf. Afterward, you will continue along the Panorama Trail from Pfälzer hut, across the northern flank of Naafkopf and through the scree near the end of the Valüna Valley then descend down to the Schwarztobel ravine and Alpetli.

The entire path offers breathtaking views and leads you to the Samina valley where you can see the little chapel of the hamlet of Steg with signposts of overnight possibilities or you can stay at the Berggasthaus Sücka mountain, which lies right on the path.

Dear Noah, the trail is well signposted with number 66, so you should find it easily. Another possibility would also be, that you use the ourdoor active app.
