The steep slopes at the end of the Malbun valley in Liechtenstein surround the little resort of Malbun (1600 m) like an arena. The small scale of this little mountain village and the traffic-calming measures in the centre of the village make Malbun a particularly family-friendly resort. The children’s entertainment programme “Malbun Rascals” keeps children happy during high season.
At one time, Malbun belonged to the ghosts in winter – it says so in a number of documents from earlier times. Today, the ghosts have been driven out, and Malbun has made a name for itself as a popular, snow-safe and family-friendly winter sports centre. With two chair-lifts, four T-bars and a drag lift, there is access to 23 km of easy slopes rising to 2000 m. There’s a fun park for snowboarders, and also, of course, a winter sports school.
The Alps are the highest and most extensive mountain range system that lies entirely in Europe, stretching approximately 1,200 km across seven Alpine countries: France, Switzerland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Austria, Germany, and Slovenia.
“I went back to one of my favorite areas in the world: the Alps, in winter season this time. Enjoy the best drone shots I took in Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Austria and Switzerland.“
Rolling hills sit at the foot of jagged peaks. Cozy homes and warm food provide refuge from the harsh elements outside. Beautiful light paints the mountains before dark clouds wash them away. The European Alps are a place of striking linguistic, cultural, and visual duality- a duality I hope to capture here.
