Information from the Foreign Office about your trip to Liechtenstein:

The Principality of Liechtenstein is a small state in the Alpine region of Central Europe. Liechtenstein is one of only two landlocked countries in the world that are also only surrounded by landlocked states.

The principality is the sixth-smallest state in the world and the fourth-smallest country in Europe. It has a so-called hereditary monarchy, which also provides the sovereign.

The country borders on Switzerland in the west and Austria in the east. With around 40,000 inhabitants, Liechtenstein is the smallest country in the German-speaking area, so German is also the official national language.

The principality is a member of the United Nations, but does not belong to the European Union. The Swiss franc is used as the national currency there, following a customs agreement with the Swiss from 1923.

The small country used to be known as a tax haven, but this has not been the case since 2013 due to an international agreement.

Around half of Liechtenstein's national territory consists of mountains. The highest peak in the country is the Vordere Grauspitz, with a height of 2,599 meters. In total there are 32 mountains higher than 2,000 meters in the principality.

The Rhine River is the most important and largest body of water in Liechtenstein. It is primarily responsible for the country's water supply and is also an important recreational area for the local population.

The largest town in Liechtenstein in terms of population is Schaan, while the capital, with the seat of the state government and the archdiocese, is the city of Vaduz.

Only around 6,000 people live in the capital Vaduz and there are three important museums there: the Liechtenstein Art Museum, the Liechtenstein State Museum and the Postal Museum. The historic medieval buildings include Vaduz Castle, the Schalun ruins and the “Red House”. The Cathedral of St. Florin is the largest building in the entire principality.

The most important modern buildings in the country include the Liechtenstein state parliament building, the government building of Liechtenstein, the town hall of the municipality of Vaduz, the “Rheinbergerhaus” and the “Old Rhine Bridge”.

There is no commercial airport on the entire territory of Liechtenstein.

The town of Malbun is a popular location for winter tourism, with several cable cars and associated amenities. Otherwise, visitors tend to come from neighboring Switzerland or other surrounding areas to spend their vacation in Liechtenstein.

So far I have traveled to the Principality of Liechtenstein twice. During my first stay I was actually only in the country for two to three hours.

In May 2001, on the way to Milan for Bayern Munich's Champions League final, I stopped to admire the scenic beauty of the small state.

My second stay took me to the small capital for a day in July 2020. Vaduz seemed more like a small, cozy and romantic village, but mostly well maintained and very clean.

The Vaduz Castle, which towers over the city and is also the residence of the reigning prince, offered a great photo opportunity from every angle. Vaduz is home to many modern bank buildings and some ornate buildings. You can definitely spend some time in the three interesting museums.

Basically, it was very comfortable in Liechtenstein and I spent an eventful day there. Somehow the small country was different from all normal travel destinations and that's why it was so attractive. This very special something makes this rich principality something very special in today's travel world and a worthwhile excursion destination at any time.
