    mouse-eared bat (lat. Myotis). (c) J.Gebhard

    In the church tower of Fläsch you find the largest population of mouse-eared bat’s (lat. Myotis). More then 1500 bats are living up in the roof chamber.

    There is a infrared camera up in the tower and you can watch the bats on a screen on the outer side of the church. But remember, the bats are not in the tower during winter time, then they hibernate in caves, caverns and cellars.

    Luzisteig Swiss Army Museum

    Luzisteig Museum

    The museum shows the history of the Fortress Luzisteig and the so called "Train", the horse transport companies.

    The museum is only small, but you can also walk the Fortress nearby, see my tip "Swiss Army Training Camp Luzisteig"

    Important: Check the opening hours on the website (only in German), at the moment it's only open on Saturdays during Summer (2005)

    The museum is easy to find on the road from Maienfeld to Balzers, there are brown signpostings "Militarmuseum"

    Luzisteig

    Here at Luzisteig (also called Luziensteig) you have the possibility to see an infantery training camp of the Swiss Army.
    Unless most other army's you can walk around in the old, but still used, Fortress and also on the adjoining surroundings.
    But make sure, stay on the path, and obey the signs and postings, if the barrier is closed don't cross it.

    There are some informations on a website, but only in German.

    The Fortress can't be missed if you drive from Maienfeld to Balzers, you will right drive tru....

    There is also a museum, see next tip.
