advice needed regarding Liechtenstein

We are considering a day trip to Liechtenstein from Zurich. We plan on doing an E-bike tour for the day. Anyone on here done this before? We want to make the best use of our last day of our 10 days of travel around Switzerland. We will have already been to Lucerne, Zermatt, the Jungfrau region and Bern.
Other suggestions on a day trip from Zurich would also be appreciated.

Prepare to be underwhelmed. The best part will be the train ride along the Walensee to and from.

Wow really? They must do an excellent job with the photography! haha. We were thinking about doing the e-bike tour for the day but if it's not worth a visit then maybe we will stay in Bern longer or think of another day trip from Zurich. Ideas?

I've only seen it through a bus window on the highway passing by, but that was as close as I needed to get. Pretty enough, but being in between Switzerland and Austria, both of which have outstanding mountain scenery, there are plenty of other places to see. Appenzell area, maybe? Rheinfalls or Stein-am-Rhein?

I've been there, once. Never a need to return. I was passing through anyway on the way to Austria.

Enjoy your bike ride. Remember your bikes need train tickets.

If Liechtenstein were part of Switzerland nobody would go there. It is just a sleepy central European town. As central European towns go it does have some picturesque parts, and some nice scenery, but you do not have to go all the way to Liechtenstein for that. There are literally hundreds of towns like that all over Europe.
You will already have don a lot of that. Just add a day to Luzern and rent e-bikes there.

I have been to Liechtenstein a few times on business. Our customer there is Liechtensteins' biggest employer, and the company is that big it employs more people than the country has inhabitants, and doesn't physcially fit inside the country even :-)

In 10 days of travel you are planning 5-6 different cities? I would plan more days in fewer places, especially since many of the best sights depend on good weather.

@Wengen K thank you for your reply. Very helpful information. We will see more of Bern instead.
As far as commenting on what we are seeing in 10 days- not really answering my specific question. We always try to see as much as we can. Our choice. We can change when there if need be.
