    by loisl Updated Jan 18, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    (c)Gery-Bikegarage.li

    The whole Heidiland is an excellent place for cycling, either with your roadbike or mountainbike.

    Ride leisurely along the river Rhine, or challange yourself on a steep mountain.

    Except main roads every road or path is fine and safe.

    Equipment: Bicycle, helmet, raingear, water and snacks

    Vista point Regitzerspitz - Peak - hike or bike

    by loisl Written Jan 18, 2005

    The peak of the Regitzerspitz is more like a plattform, safely protected with a fence on the steep cliffside.
    As you can see it can also be done by mountain bike, riding up to the top is a bit challanging, because of some tricky steps on the top, try it!

    Vista point Regitzerspitz

    Regitzerspitz

    If you want to see the Rhinevalley from 600 meter above, then hike up to the Regitzerspitz.
    Hike up there on a good path and enjoy the view from the top.
    Behind the fence the cliff drops several hundert meters down towards the river and the wineyards.

    The peak on the picture looks wild, but the path on the back side is not real steep, it is really a hiking tour, not a climb.
    Don't worry, the path is safe!!!

    Check also the map in the next tip.

    The path is well marked with yellow signs

    Equipment: Light hiking boots
    Raingear
    Water and a snack

    Northern part of track

    The Ellhorn can be orbited by jogging/walking.
    It's a very scenic run along the river Rhine, climbing 200meter up to Luzisteig and passing forests, in the mid of the mountains.

    Distance: approx. 15km
    Altitude: +/-200m

    Offcourse you can also hike this tour

    Map see next tip

    Caution: Use the main road only between Fläsch and Fortress, north of the Fort you better use the small road west of the main road going parallel along the forestline!

    Equipment: Jogging shoes
