From the car park on the outskirts of Malbun, the route leads up to the Friedenskapelle, the highest church in Liechtenstein. The trail leads gently up through forests and across meadows. At the Sass lake you will find a large rest area with a BBQ spot. Afterwards the trail leads down across the meadows of Alp Sass to the "Schneeflucht" and on to the holiday village and winter sports resort of Malbun. 

Author’s recommendation

The Sass Trail is also suitable for large-wheeled children’s buggies.

Schöne kurze Wanderung mit vielen Sitzbänken entlang der Strecke die zum Hinsetzen und den Moment genießen einladen. Besonders nett finde ich auch den Grillplatz welcher sich in etwa auf halben Weg befindet.
