  • NEXT STOP !

    I found myself on a tour bus in 1986 across Europe. One day the bus stopped and the tour guide pointed in the middle distance at a nice castle and said ‘we are in Liechtenstein, you have 15 minutes to take photos and we can’t go in the castle’. Definitely a scene out of the movie ‘If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium’. To be fair it’s just a small...

  • Tax haven

    For such a small country, Liechtensteiners have a very high standard of living thanks in part to the country's function as a tax haven. It is easy to form a corporation in Liechtenstein and they have a very low business tax rate which makes it an attractive place to form a legal entity and do business. The formation of foundations registered in the...

  • Money matters

    Liechtenstein's official currency is the Swiss Franc (CHF) although at least one place we went asked us if we wanted to use Euro or Swiss Franc.Liechtenstein is not cheap, we spent a bit of time trying to find a souvenir to add to David's collection at work and couldn't locate anything that was reasonably priced or for that matter interesting. Same...

    This is only for slightly crazy people or for those who want to reach Buchs from Lindau without buying a Swiss motorway sticker. You start in the nice place Lindau in Germany (see my page), take the Autobahn to Austria (Bregenz) and continue in the direction to Innsbruck until Feldkirch, follow the signs to Vaduz, pass the checkpoint at...

  • Well I'll be damned.

    When I was last in this tiny country I found out an interesting little fact about their national flag.Apparantly the Olympic team turned up to the 1936 games and were gobsmacked to find another flag the same as their own.It was the good people of Liechenstein rather than those of Haiti who took the initiative : and that's the reason they have a...

    As mentioned in the previous tip, there is now monitored border between Liechtenstein and Switzerland, but on the bridges you find a sign marking the border line.

    If you enter Liechtenstein from Switzerland you will maybe not recognize the border.Over a long distance it is the river Rhine seperating the two countries.In the middle of the 6 bridges you find a sign marking the border, the sign is the coat of arms of the Princely House of Liechtenstein and it is also the large national coat of arms.Making a...

  • Cost of Living In Liechtenstein

    This is a lovely postcard of Vaduz.Let's talk about the cost of living here in this tiny principality. Costs in Liechtenstein are among the highest in Europe. :-( If you're on a super-tight budget and you stay in hostels, you could probably survive on approx. US$40 a day (I hope) after buying a rail pass. If you decide to stay in a pension, enjoy...

  • Flag of Liechtenstein

    This is the Flag of Liechtenstein. The national colours are Red and Blue and the colours given by the prince are Red and Yellow. You will see the whole country full of these three bright colours. I first came to Liechtenstein in December and then in April... Last month i was there TWICE. I love this country.

  • Where is Liechtenstein ?

    My favourite thing about liechtenstein is that it is amazingly small and beautiful. Everything is so nicely done that one feel's like if i have come to a wonderland. Now you can imagine hwo much do i like this country. It is situated between Switzerland and Austria. You can come here either from Feldkirch (Austria), Buchs (Switzerland) or Sargans...

  • Triesenberg

    Triesenberg is on a terrace above Vaduz, and it commands excellent views over the Rhine Valley. As well as a lovely onion-domed church, it has a museum devoted to the Walser community, which journeyed here from Switzerland in the 13th century. The Walser dialect is still spoken in the region.

  • Malbun

    Liechtenstein's premier ski resort nestles amid the mountains in the country's south-east. As well as two ski schools, it has good runs for novices and more difficult ones for the experienced. The main road from Vaduz terminates at Malbun, and there are daily buses from the capital.

  • Vaduz

    Little more than a village, Vaduz contains most of the points of interest in Liechtenstein. Two adjoining streets, Städtle and Äulestrasse, enclose the centre of town, and everything of any importance is within this small area. The State Art Collection (Staatliche Kunstsammlung) has good temporary exhibitions and includes parts of the art...

  • Blink and you Almost Miss It

    The first and only indication you get of entering Liechtenstein is the border sign on the bridge crossing the Rhine from Switzerland. Liechtenstein is not the biggest tourist draw in Europe but if you are in the area, you certainly should go and spend a few hours there if for no other reason but to say you have been there..

    I was exclusively in Vaduz, the capital where there's a beautiful castle. It's nothing like a city, but rather a small mountain village.Liechtenstein is famous for the unique stamps, highly wanted by philatelists !!! I used to collect them for some years... If you like rich people...go over there.

    Hike along the Rhine! The country is only a few miles across in the south - you can see Vaduz and walk across the country in the same day - how often can you say that? wandering up the hill to the castle in the drizzle.

    This little principality is probably best for those looking for scenic beauty. To be certain, Liechtenstein, by itself, offers no more than two or three days of interest, but it is also a good base for exploring eastern Switzerland or western Austria, as well as for skiing. That said, in a country that is only 62 square miles in area, that's not...

    Visit Vaduz - small and quiet town with great panorama of the Alps. With its population of 5106 inhabitants (1998), I think it's the smallest capitol in the world.
