Another map of Liechtenstein
the hiking area.
Date: August 12 - 14, 1999
stop along the grand tour after leaving Strasbourg and the solar
eclipse. This is a VERY small country. After entering Liechtenstein
from Austria, we started looking for our hotel located in the town
of Vaduz just to find out we had missed it and were just about to
enter Switzerland. Talk about not blinking or you will miss it,
we almost did. The town of Vaduz was a wonderful, quiet and friendly
town. While in town Eddie got to stop by the main post office and
pick up some of the beautiful stamps that Liechtenstein is well
known for producing.
day Eddie and Sheena drove to the mountain town of Malbun and hiked
up Augstenberg, 7,740 feet high. It was an incredible hike to our
1st summit in the Alps. The way down was extended with a stop at
the Pfalzerhutte for a warm lunch and beer. The hike back to Malbun
was longer than expected from the hut, but the scenery was stunning
and well worth every step.

this hike while staying in Vaduz, August 13, 1999.
