I refer to the reports in the “Volksblatt” and in the “Vaterland” from Thursday, May 19, 2022, page 3. It can be seen from this that the Jufa Group wants to invest half a million Swiss francs in the hotel. Quote from the CEO of the Jufa Group, Mr. Gerhard Wendl: “We want to create areas so that the local population also feels welcome.” I’m sorry, what? Have the strategies of Bergbahnen Malbun focused on foreign families up until now? Six million Swiss francs down the drain! Of these, the state of Liechtenstein is said to be directly responsible for two million. Millions more? are to be written off as the majority owner of the LLB! Now, in two weeks, the state parliament is to speak a further 5.9 million francs for the renovation of the Malbun mountain railways. Furthermore, the Malbun strategies call for an annual state contribution of CHF 900,000.
Truly a bottomless pit!
A holiday home contribution is not regulated by law to this day. An attempt by the municipality of Triesenberg to raise such a law was successfully fought in court! As long as the hut owners and other snobbish people are not willing to make an appropriate contribution to the infrastructure, these should not be made available to railways that are mostly administered by the state (state and municipalities). Ski lifts are a pure luxury item and must therefore be financed by interested parties (e.g. through collectors’ shares!). Finally, I would like to state that ski lifts cannot be included in any way with a community hall or indoor pool, as certain Malbun strategists are increasingly arguing, as a result of which they point out that Malbun would be a state sports field.
