Involving an elevation of 1,000 metres over 14 km, this is a challenging trail run for keen mountain hikers. The Sareis ridge along the border with Austria rewards the hiker with breath-taking views.

The starting point is located directly alongside the Jöraboda bus stop in front of the Malbun Center. Following a brief and steep ascent, the trail passes to the right and continues to rise all the way to Sareis mountain station. Now follow the sign in the direction of the Pfälzer hut on the path along the ridge. After Augstenberg you descend directly to the Pfälzer hut, where the path turns sharp left towards Täli / Malbun. Leaving Vaduzer Täli, you stay on the Liechtenstein Höhenweg and make a detour to Alpe Pradamee. From there the trail returns directly to the starting point in Malbun.

Author’s recommendation

Warm up well before the trail, or begin slowly, as the route rises right from the start. Treat yourself to a break at the Pfälzer hut with breath-taking views of the Samina Valley, Switzerland and Austria. More about the author Michael Lenz: https://swisstrailguide.com

Safety information

The hiking trail is well signposted and secured at difficult points with steps and cables. You will need to be surefooted, as the trail includes a number of exposed and steep sections (maximum T3).

Tips and hints

Toilet facilities and the opportunity to refill water flasks can be found at the Malbun Center behind the Jöraboda bus stop and in the Pfälzer hut.

 

Combine this trail run with a family excursion. Right behind the Malbun Center there is a pleasant playground and a barbecue area. The restaurants in Malbun will also be happy to pamper you with their culinary delights.
