No Airport & No Railway Station in Vaduz!
In case you haven't already discovered, Liechtenstein has no airport. :-( The nearest airport is in Z?rich, Switzerland.
There are also no local railways apart from the international line from Zurich to Vienna that stops at Schaan (north of Vaduz).
The Postal Bus
The Postal Buses go just about anywhere in Liechtenstein. The schedules emanate from Vaduz. They are pretty inexpensive, by Swiss standards - remember, this country is almost an extension of the Swiss confederation, at least pricewise! Nearest train stations are in Feldkirch, Austria - a very interesting town in its own right - and Buchs, Switzerland - both towns which have bus connections to Vaduz.

This picture is taken on the main railway station bus stop where the bus of Liechtenstein stops. This its first stop so you can not miss the bus. Even if you miss the bus there is another one coming just after every 15 mins.
Liechtenstein a country without Airport or Rails.
It is a very unique country without any airport or a railway station so you have to get yourself on to this Liechtenstein bus either from Austria or Switzerland in order to come here.
But once you are in this small country the bus network is pretty good and it will take you to all the corners of Liechtenstein.
By Air : Liechtenstein has no airport and the closest one is Zurich (80 miles away) which has a railway station underneath it.
By Train : Buchs train station you can take the postbus (twice every hour) to Vaduz which is about a 15min drive.
By car : the N3 motorway from Zürich will take you toward Liechtenstein; other major highways bring traffic from Germany and Austria.
By Bus : There is a good bus link which connects to all the communities within the principality as well as to Feldkirch, Buchs/SG or Sargans and their connecting train service. There are also Taxi's and car rentals.
It's very easy to get to Vaduz...
It's very easy to get to Vaduz from Switzerland (and other places, too, I'm sure, but I went there from Zurich). Trains/buses go there all the time.
It's too small to worry about it. You can walk easily around Vaduz, and buses will take you different places in the country -- or you can rely on your feet.
Rent a car in Zurich,...
Rent a car in Zurich, Switzerland. The trip is only about an hour and the views along the way are great. Also, I have been told that there is a rail line - the World Almanac says Liechtenstein has 12 miles of track - that runs through the north of the country. I have been told that there is a train station in Schaan, a town just north of Vaduz, that you can use. Frankly, I do not remember crossing railway tracks when I went north, and I do not remember seeing a train station in Schaan, nor seeing a sign for one - no surprise there. However, this may be an option for getting into Liechtenstein.
As with getting to Liechtenstein, cars are the best bet for getting around. Although there is a bus service, it is not sufficiently flexible to get you to the different sites. Note, however, Liechtensteiners are not notorious for highlighting their sites and roads with signs. Additionally, although parking is plentiful in Vaduz, and though they do not appear to be rigorous in enforcing parking times, all the machines require Swiss franc coins. (Liechtenstein uses the Swiss franc as its currency.) Be sure to have the coins with you as it can be inconvenient trying to find a place to make change.
Postbus to Vaduz
Unless you are the type that charters a helicopter at Zürich airport to fly in and set up your 100 million dollar trust fund, you'll arrive in Liechtenstein by road. You can take a train from Zürich to Sargans, but there you'll have to change to a Liechtenstein post bus, that will cross the Rhine into the Principality and meander around a couple of villages before depositing you outside the main post office in Vaduz.
The only way to get there by...
The only way to get there by plane is to fly into Zurich. Then you can rent a car. it is not far from the airport- If I remeber correctly, it was about an hour or so.
There is a bus which goes around the country which I have been told is okay-I usually rent a car!
