Princes' Way Hike

The Princes' Way ("Fürstensteig") is one of the most famous paths in the Rätikon mountain range and is a classic mountain hike in Liechtenstein. A first-class tour full of extremes and surprises awaits you.

The hike begins with the scenic views from Alp Gaflei at an altitude of 1400 metres above sea level. Over green pastures and past mountain pines, the path climbs continuously to reveal spectacular views. The Princes' Way is an experience of a special kind, with several exposed sections equipped with fixed wire ropes to hold on to. At Gaflei Saddle you will see the 'Drei Schwestern' ('Three Sisters') mountains in the distance. The path then leads below the Schrofen mountain peak and up a steep path through a gap, before continuing below Helwangs Peak to the 'Kamin', which is also signposted as the 'Chemi' ('chimney').
From here, the path takes you past more mountain pines down to Bärgälla Saddle, which offers breathtaking views of all the mountains and valleys in Liechtenstein. Now it is only a short hike back to the starting point in Gaflei.
