Following on from earlier themes featuring nature reserves, mountain landscapes and expanses of water, the latest panorama stamps now show some hiking trails etched into Liechtenstein’s mountainous landscape. This small country’s network of roads comprises 130 kilometres of major roads, around 500 kilometres of minor roads and numerous cycle paths and footpaths. In addition, more than 400 kilometres of well-maintained and signposted hiking trails wind their way across the distinctive mountain terrain. The Principality of Liechtenstein thus has the densest network of hiking trails in Europe.

A small selection of these are featured on the two new special stamps "Upper Silum" and "Towards Gapfahl" (left and right, face value: CHF 1.00 each). The area of the Silum Alp in Triesenberg extends from 1400 to 1700 metres above sea level and offers spectacular views of the Rhine Valley. Below the Rappastein, in the midst of the imposing mountain range, lies the Balzner Gapfahl Alp at an altitude rising from about 1700 to just under 1880 metres. The motifs of Johannes Frigg and Sepp Köppel came about from a competition held by the Spektral photography club. The two panoramic views were divided in the middle, creating four stamps. They appear as a se-tenant on a sheet of eight.
