The Green Trail


14 stages – crossing 2 countries : Liechtenstein and Switzerland.

The shortest trail of the Via Alpina, it can be a holiday itinerary on its own or used to shorten the full Trieste to Monaco trip.










Starting off from the second smallest Alpine country, the Principality of Liechtenstein, it crosses the Valley of the Rhine. Then it links an astounding succession of passes amongst the most beautiful in the Alps with a new valley at each stage.

It covers no less than five cantons, guaranteeing a variety of both geological features and cultural heritage. The Via Alpina runs along the flanks of the three summits which are symbols of the Bernese Oberland.




The Green Trail coincides with the National Swiss Route number 1 which then with four further stages takes walkers to Montreux on the East bank of Lake Geneva.

Massifs crossed: Rätikon - Central Switzerland - Bernese Alps.
