Fürstensteig and Drei Schwestern

For today the weather forecast said only sunshine and completely blue sky! That was the weather I was waiting for to do hike the Fürstensteig and the Drei Schwestern in Liechtenstein! Because the view during this hike is so amazing I can recommend to do it only when the weather is really good.

This hike goes from Gaflei to Planken. So it is best to arrive by bus from Vaduz. There is a bus to Gaflei, but you have to call at least 30 minutes before departure to make sure the bus actually comes. But there is also a regular bus to Triesenberg Abzw. Madescha. I took this one and then walked along the road to Gaflei. Then the path continues through forest until the Fürstensteig begins. The view into the Rhine valley is amazing! After leaving the Fürstensteig behind the path goes to the Kuhgrat and from there I saw the Drei Schwestern.

All along the way the view is just great! On one side the Rhine valley, on the other side the Rätikon with the Schesaplana. The path goes over the Große Schwester with some fixed ropes to help on the ascend and descend. On the way down are two ladders and soon after these I reached another photo spot with a hole in the rock. From there I walked further down to the Gafadurahütte where I enjoyed an apple soda with a great view to the Alpstein, already planning the next hike. I continued down to Planken where I took the bus back to Buchs. This is definitely a really enjoyable hike 🙂
