Lichtenstein may be small, but don’t underestimate its hiking potential. The long-distance Lichtenstein Trail takes you through all 11 of this small country’s districts, revealing its wealth of culture and long history.

Ahead of you lie 46 miles (75 km) spread over five stages. Each hike reveals exciting stories about the region, affords panoramic views, and offers picturesque picnic spots. You can use the new "LIstory" app to teach you more about the region as you go.

Your multi-day hike begins in Balzers, a village in the south of Liechtenstein. From there, you Triesenberg and Vaduz municipalities, and on to Nendeln and Ruggell villages. After creating unforgettable memories and taking some impressive photos, you finally arrive in Schaanwald on the Austrian border. You can start your hike along the Liechtenstein Trail from any village and walk the route in either direction.

To ensure your adventure runs smoothly, you should book accommodation in the stage destinations in good time. This allows you to relax upon arrival and enjoy the cultural offerings in the historic villages and municipalities.

So, pack some snacks and water in your rucksack and keep your camera handy at all times. You can look forward to a wonderful hike through Liechtenstein.
