Schaan Things to Do

    Old building at Schaan/Vaduz train station 1 more image

    Probably the station is more interesting as a sight than as a real option to get into Liechtenstein. The modern bus station in front of it handles most of the traffic while only a couple of trains serve the station from which most end at Buchs, which is served by bus frequently anyway. The train station was inaugurated in 1872 and has the original main building still preserved. Have a look at the wooden building at the end of the platform which indeed looks like being from another time. Reconstrucion programs (together with improved railways services) are expected for 2015, so enjoy the old-style atmosphere as long as you can.

    Duxkapelle 3 more images

    This chapel is a popular destination for local pilgrimages. It replaced an older chapel on the same spot and was finished in 1716. The choir is probably older, maybe early 17th century and could have been part of a predecessor building. The tower (1789) and the entrance hall (1829) are later additions. The „Duxkapelle“ was refurbished in 1998. Today, it is the only baroque religious building in the country.

    Schaan Town Hall 1 more image

    by Airpunk Written May 5, 2013

    Schaan's Town Hall is located in a former school building from 1844. Despite (or beacause of) this, it has a more majestic appearance than its counterpart in Vaduz. The building became the town hall in 1975 and the former gym became the assembly hall. In 2000, a new building called SAL (Saal am Lindaplatz) was added for this purpose. Its columns give it a necolassicist appearance, though it is more chunky than real neoclassicist buildings. Both buildings are illuminated at night.

    .. the late rulers of Liechtenstein. Very popular among the people one can see them go shopping, fishing etc. Very down to earth. To address them one would need to call them Ihre Ducrhlaucht ( Your Serene Highness)

    Sgn of the Kulturpfad

    by Airpunk Written May 5, 2013

    Favorite thing: Schaan has a path (Kulturpfad) with its most interesting sites - pretty easy to follow. Unfortunately, all the information about it is only available in German. You can download the PDF file (Yes, German only as well) with all the sights and info under the link below:
