During our visit to Switzerland in July 2008, after leaving Zurich we wanted to pop into Liechtenstein for a few hours. As there are no train stations in this tiny country, we needed to catch a bus from Switzerland. We opted to catch a bus from Sargans as this was on route from Zurich to Chur (where we were spending our next night).When you arrive...more
This is a tip for getting to Liechtenstein. The bus that runs from here to Vaduz is pretty easy to use. You pay as you get onto the bus, it was about 7.20 CHF roundtrip. There didn't seem to be a time table posted at the main train station, but there is a sign at the corner of the building saying 'bus to Liechtenstien.'more

Many regions in Switzerland celebrate carneval.
Also the area around Sargans knows Carneval as historic event many centuries old.
The Carneval time depends on the calender, but usually it's beginning of February.
Visit the parade or one of the parties in the restaurants or townhall.
The Climbing Garden at the Schollberg offers routes with different difficulty levels .
You climb around old fortress holes and get a special insight into the military instalations there.
Caution: it can be crowded on weekends
Equipment: Normal climbers stuff
When we arrived by train to Sargans we had our suitcases with us, but had no desire to take them with us to Vaduz (in Liechtenstein), as we were only visiting there for a few hours before returning to Sargans.
To make life easier there are luggage lockers at Sargans station. I had actually researched this in advance of our trip but was still relieved to see them and determine they were in working order (bad experiences with lockers in Italy have made me nervous!).
Fondest memory: We were also happy to discover that one of the larger lockers was able to fit our three suitcases comfortably, so the locker was only CHF 6 in total for the three of us.
