    They lived in the simple home pictured here for most of the 19th Century - the Majoratspalais on Bankgasse, just off the Ring. The family has always been involved in amassing some of the world's greatest art treasures and these were housed in this palce until 1807 when they were relocated to the much grander Gartenpalais, now the...

  • Get your head in the clouds

    The Liechtenstein mountains are just magical. There are many miles of footpaths, some fairly 'flat' in the Rhine valley, and others right up on the peaks of the mountains. The air is a bit thinner there, and the weather can change quickly, so wear the right clothing, take plenty of water and ask locals for advice.For the less adventurous - take the...

HERE ARE SOME NOTES FROM THE NET BY A PROSPECTIVE CLIMBER: We started from Frankfurt in two rental cars with the Grauspitz (8,076') in Liechtenstein as our first objective. We figured since Liechtenstein was so small and the peak low, it would be straightforward - wrong. Going...

    You can't miss the cows in Liechtenstein. They stand glumly waiting for walkers and then clank their cowbells as they plod slowly out of the way. Down in the valley, the tourist shops do a brisk trade in souvenir cowbells to the busloads of tourists that throng the centre of Vaduz every summer afternoon.

  • Skiing in Liechtenstein

    Liechtenstein's only ski resort is at Malbun, a picturesque Alpine village about 17 km from Vaduz. Old Cliffie recalls driving up from the floor of the Rhine valley one drizzling winter morning to pass through a long, narrow tunnel into a wonderland of gently falling snow in the Malbun valley. But after lunch and two hours of steadily falling snow,...

  • Top of the world, Ma!

    Having got as far as Malbun, you may as well go all the way and ride the chairlift to the top of the Sareiser Joch. Up at 2000 metres the air is clear and you can peer down the other side of the mountain into Austria.
