Day trip tips in the region

The region around Malbun has much more to offer besides winter sports. You and your family will love these destinations:

Tip 1: On a treasure hunt in Malbun

This is something for real detectives, solving exciting riddles together and getting to know Liechtenstein better. After an approx. 3-hour discovery tour through Malbun, with tricky riddles, you will end up at a mysterious treasure chest. But only those who have solved all the riddles correctly can open the lock. An exciting discovery tour for all ages!

Tip 2: Winter toboggan run

Whizzing down the mountain with the whole family is possible from the Sücka mountain restaurant in Steg. The natural toboggan run that is over 1 km long leads directly down to the valley. The last straight section also lets brave tobogganers pick up higher speeds. The natural toboggan run is floodlit in the evening.

Tip 3: Explore Vaduz

The capital of Liechtenstein offers impressive buildings. One of the newer buildings is the government and state parliament building, which immediately stands out with its striking design. The “Red House”, first mentioned in records in 1338, is located in a vineyard in Vaduz’ upper village. The most comfortable way to explore the city with children is to take the City Train, which takes you from the central village, through the small vineyards to the “Red House”.
