Camino Frances 2019 Mid August- Mid September
I recently heard about a new trail marked out for a 75km criss-cross walk across Liechtenstein.

Has anyone actually done this?
If so, did you do it in 3 days, or would you recommend more?
How were accommodations?
Were there affordable (10-25 euro places) along the way? Any hostels at all?
In general, how was it?
Was there anything you were surprised by, wish you had known before hand, or otherwise note-worthy pieces of info you think future walkers should know?

Just gathering info right now.

Thanks :)

The Lichtenstein Trail is not a Camino or pilgrimage related trail, so there is probably not a lot of information about it on this Forum. I cannot see any references to it using our search engine.

There are a lot of Google references to it, and that may provide some information that would be helpful.

You can download an app called LIstory. It has lots of information.
I haven't walked it, but I have downloaded the app, as I intend walking next year.

Apart from the Liechtenstein trail, there is also a pilgrimage path running through Liechtenstein, which may be of interest for you. It is 56 km long running from the east to the west - and I suppose it connects with Swiss and Austrian Jakobswege (have not checked this)

More info is here: (the link to the pdf also gives accomodation options)

For Lichenstein I have consulted the hiking mode of Way Marked Trails and find only a 1,100 km route called Zentral Alpen Weg # 2 coursing through part of Liechtenstein. This starts well to the east near Bratislavia and ends just above Vaduz.

Luxembourg is well to the north, just below Belgium and The Netherlands and I can see the Luxembourg section of Jacobsweg mapped there.

But no route leading to Compostella has been mapped in Liechtenstein.

The Lux Jakobsweg site linked above says: "After crossing the Moselle Bridge in Schengen, the Luxembourgish Way leaves the country and meets the path that leads from Trier to Metz." And that connects through Vezelay to Compostela.

@Kitsambler , regrettably, Luxembourg, Moselle River and Schengen are about 500 km north of Liechtenstein.

And it is Liechtenstein that is the object of interest in the original post for this thread.

Yes there is !! See my post #6.

It goes from Feldkirch (Austria), then passing a little of Liechtenstein, to Wattwill (Schweiz), where it futher connects with the Jakobsweg (eventually leading to Santiago).

Have a further look at the Swiss Jakobsweg site: https://jakobsweg.ch/de/eu/ch/weg/
Or this map of the German pilgrim paths: http://www.deutsche-jakobswege.de/wege-uebersicht.html
And you see how Liechtenstein fits into all of this.

Always agree with that.

And the good news for all of us is that there are pilgrims paths running through both Luxembourg and Liechenstein. :)
