The SwitzerlandMobility Rheintal-Bike Route 48 leads from Bad Ragaz to Sennwald.

 

What makes this route so special is that it leaves Switzerland and runs the whole length of Liechtenstein from Balzers to Ruggell.

Whilst the south route mainly takes you along the mountainside of the Rätikon, the north route leads along the flat marshlands and down the gentle west slope on the ridge of the Eschnerberg (Eschen mountain).

The route proceeds mainly along Liechtenstein's usual bike network and is marked with «Rheintal Bike 48».

The Rheintal-Bike route (Rhine Valley Tour) is accessible from all areas of Liechtenstein, making it possible to take the shortened routes rather than the more demanding complete route.

Author’s recommendation

The bike tour leads directly past the Vaduz Castle.

The flowering lilies in Ruggell at the beginning of June are an exceptional natural phenomenon.
