"Through the wild and romantic Samina Valley"
The path through the longest Rätikon valley at the foot of the Three Sisters is a dream tour. In summer as well as in autumn when the first snow falls on the mountains - the valley shines in golden autumn leaves - then the white cascades of the Samina gleam wonderfully in the sunlight.
The Samina is the soul of the Liechtenstein alpine waters. It is dammed at the hamlet of Steg, where the first footbridge has been bridging the river since ancient times. From the Steg Tunnel bus stop, the markings lead briefly along the road over the bridge in front of the tunnel portal and point right there onto Bödastrasse, an alpine path that ends at Bödastall. This is where the actual mountain hiking trail begins, which runs continuously west of the river to the border: over the Sulzboden down to Kaufbödele and then along the left side of the stream to the mouth of the Valorschbach, which flows down on the opposite side of the valley. At the Fallck at the foot of the Three Sisters Massif, the path changes to Vorarlberg and turns into a comfortable forest path (yellow and white marking) in the wild and romantic gorge. Then the hiking trail leaves the Samina and leads up to the hilltop village of Amerlügen in Austria on a panoramic terrace of the Vorderälpeles.
