Travel Tips for Vaduz
Radio Liechtenstein is... well, just a radio - with news, interviews, music and so on... in German, so not for everyone. And yet, everyone should listen to it - just to say you have done it, of course - but also to know what's up the in principality.
here are some of its frequences:
Vaduz: 96.9 FM
Malbun: 100.3 FM
Triesenberg: 89.2 FM
The wooden bridge
Vaduz as Luzerna has a beautiful wooden bridge. Leaving Vaduz, you get to the Rhine (not to Balzers or Sargans) and next to the modern concrete bridge for car traffic, and old wooden bridge can be found for pedestrians and cyclists only. Between Vaduz and Sevelen, Saint-Gall, Switzerland it was finished at 1901.

Vaduz is the capital of the principality of Liechtenstein. It is one of the few capitals in the world not to have an airport or train station. Even so, it is very popular with tourist who, like us, pop into Liechtenstein to add another country to their tally.
We visited Vaduz for a few hours, which was more than enough time. I understand that the Liechtenstein countryside is quite beautiful but unfortunately we didn't have the time to explore further on this visit.
The smallest capital in the world
Vaduz is dominated by the Princes' Residence, the Castle (currently under restauration and closed to the public). From there you can literally control the life of the nation, as easy as looking out from the window. The capital, Vaduz, lies at your feet. Actually Vaduz is a shining townlet, whose atmosphere is both traditional and artificial. It is a real paradise for wealthy people...I was impressed by the women who populate the happy principality, they all look like top-models and their age ranges invariably between 20 and 30. Probably at 30 their citizenship expires...
