    Do you want a stamp in your passport ??

    by globetrott Updated Aug 6, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Almost everything is a good business in Liechtenstein, so it is not a big surprise, that they even ask for money, when you would like to have a souvenir-stamp of "Fuerstentum Liechtenstein" in your passport. At least they take their time and place the seal carefully upon your passport and will charge you 2sfr/ 1,50 Euros for that service at the Tourist-office !
    The tourist-office is open Monday-friday 09.00-12.00a.m. + 01.30-05.00p.m.
    The office is closed every Saturday & Sunday
    BUT you may get the stamp at the desk there anyway 09.00a.m.-05.00p.m.
    It seems to be a really good business :-))
    Holders of the "Erlebnispass Liechtenstein" get the stamp for free !!

    Official Currency: Swiss Franc

    by HORSCHECK Updated Apr 22, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Like Switzerland, Liechtenstein doesn't belong to the European Union, but to the EFTA (European Free Trade Association). It also doesn't have the Euro as official currency, even though it is widely accepted.

    The official currency in Liechtenstein is the Swiss Franc (CHF). You can get your money from many cash points or exchange offices. As you will probably arrive to Liechtenstein from Switzerland make sure that you have already enough Swiss Francs on hand.

    To tip or not to tip?

    by morgenhund Written Apr 10, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was unsure when in Vaduz whether or not one should tip or not - although in most cafés I went to service was included in the price, thus meaning that tipping was not necessary - indeed in one restaurant they looked at me strangely when I rounded the bill up (an Austrian practice). Mind you with the prices already being so high, you'd probably be well excused not to offer a tip.
