    To Vaduz by bus

    by HORSCHECK Updated Nov 30, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As Vaduz does neither have an airport nor a train station the only way to get there by public transport is the bus.

    The Liechtenstein Bus company runs regular services to all towns and villages in Liechtenstein, to Feldkirch in Austria and to Sargans and Buchs in Switzerland.

    We arrived to Vaduz from Sargans in Switzerland which has frequent rail connections towards Zurich or Chur. We also used the bus to get to Feldkirch in Austria.

    Bus tickets are available from the driver. Some Swiss railpasses are valid on the Liechtenstein buses as well.

    Explore Vaduz on foot

    by HORSCHECK Written Apr 21, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    With only about 5200 inhabitants Vaduz is one of the smallest capitals in the world. It can be best explored on foot. Also the neigbouring town Schaan is still in walking distance from Vaduz.

    If you are tired of walking then you can still take a bus which runs along the main street.

    Train, bus, taxi, but not aeroplane!

    by Henrik_rrb Written Jan 16, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Liechtenstein's capital Vaduz must be the only capital in Europe (not too sure about Andorra though?) that doesn't have an airport, or a trainstation? In fact, there isn't an airport or trainstation in the whole country!?

    Not too strange one can say though, as Liechtenstein is one of Europe's five micro states, but to get there you'll have to take buses from either Switzerland, Germany or Austria.

    We arrived here from Zürich, from where we first took a train to Sargans (make sure to get a seat on the left side of the train, as the view of Lake Zürich is fantastic!), and from there a bus for another 20-30 minutes.

    It's the same also if you come from one of the other two countries from where you can reach the little kingdom.

    The bus will stop in the central parts of the very little town, from where you will have no problem to find your way around.

    Best way to go around

    by Henrik_rrb Written Jan 16, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Taxi in Liechtenstein is fairly cheap, and as the little country is just little, it never really goes expensive no matter where you want to go.

    The only problem is that there aren't too many taxis, which we realised after having the same taxi driver three times during two days.

    But just ask the hotel staff to call a cab for you, and it will be there five minutes later.
    The taxi station in town is next to a big parking garage. Normally there is no taxi there, but inside the garage there is a phone in the wall, that you use to call for a taxi. Quite funny. And it won't take long until it's there.

    Lots of buses...

    by Henrik_rrb Written Jan 16, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you prefer to save your money for something else than a taxi I can recommend you to take a bus instead. There are quite many bus lines in Vaduz, going to the different, even smaller, villages around in the mountains.
    A ticket cost about 1 euro, and you can buy the ticket onboard. Just make sure to take the right bus, as there are many lines stopping at the same bus stop in the city, but then goes on many different routes.

    Montafonerbahn - No quicker than the bus

    by morgenhund Written Nov 15, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Montafonerbahn is a privately owned railway, running for some 12.7 km between Bludenz and Schruns and which stops, along the wait at Schaan-Vaduz - the only train station in Liechtenstein. From there you have to take the bus from the nearby post office in order to get to the centre of Vaduz. InterCity trains will probably only stop at Buchs - you tend to go through Liechtenstein without realising it - other than having received an sms if your phone roams! Feldkirch-Schaan is 16km and costs a normal ÖBB or Vorarlberg VOR tariff.

    LiechtensteinBus

    by morgenhund Written Aug 4, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are travelling to Liechtenstein and are not driving, then the chances are that you'll end up using the LiechtensteinBus service. A day pass, which allows you unlimited travel around the entire principality costs EUR 3.20 or CHF 5.00 and that is also valid for the stretch to Feldkirch, in Vorarlberg, where the main Zurich-Vienna line stops. The buses running to time, and are clean and efficient and offer you a good way of seeing the countryside in Liechtenstein. This is the easiest public transport solution - otherwise there are only infrequently stopping trains to Schaan-Vaduz - from where you will have to use the bus to get to Vaduz in any case!

    If flying to Zurich, you can take the train for the 1 1/2 hour trip to the Swiss town of Sargans, near the Liechtenstein border. In Sargans, connections are excellent with the Swiss Postal Bus System, which serves all communities in Liechtenstein.

    There are no border formalities between the two countries, and Liechtenstein uses Swiss currency.

    Within the principality do traveling via postal bus. By presenting your Swiss Pass if non European passport holder (obtained in your own country), you are able to
    purchase a special ticket for unlimited bus travel throughout the country.
    The cost was the equivalent of about $5 each, and all you need to do is
    show your passes to the driver when boarding.

    Buses run frequently and schedules are posted at each stop.
    There is about 250 km of paved roadway within Liechtenstein, and 9.5 km of railway.
    The country's rails are administered by the Austrian Federal Railways as part of the
    route between Feldkirch, Austria, and Buchs SG, Switzerland. Four stations in Liechtenstein, including Schaan-Vaduz, Forst Hilti, Nendeln, and Schaanwald,
    are served by an irregular stopping-train service running between Feldkirch
    and Buchs.
    'While EuroCity and other long distance international trains also make use
    of the route, these do not call at Liechtenstein stations. Liechtenstein Bus is
    a subsidiary of the Swiss Postbus system, and connects to the Swiss bus
    network at Buchs SG and at Sargans.

    Liechtenstein Bus

    by anytimeanywhere Updated Apr 18, 2006

    The Liechtenstein Bus is very easy to use with friendly drivers. The system connects most points in the country with each other, as well as the towns of Buchs and Sargans, Switzerland, as well a Feldkirch, Austria, all three being decent transportation hubs to other points to Europe. If you plan on using the bus for more than one trip or reasonable length, buy the tageskarte (day pass) as it turns out to be a better value (7 CHF, vs. 2-5CHF each way)

    From Vaduz to Munich by train

    by Mazely Written Jul 16, 2008

    Well, it's not easy - it will take about 4~5 hours.
    You can go to from Vaduz to Buchs SG or Feldkirch (Austria) and then take a train to Innsbruck; from Innsbruck, there are direct trains to Munich (I did that, not from Vaduz but from Chur, and "divided" in 2 days - Chur/Innsbruck; Innsbruck/Garmisch, Garmisch/Munich).
    Another option is to go from Buchs or Feldkirch to Lindau (Germany), and then to Munich.
    The best way to find all the connections is Deutsche Bahn site:
    http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en?
    And have in mind that Vaduz itself doesn't have a train station. You take the yellow bus to Buchs SG or to Feldkirch

    Easy connections

    by sswagner Written Jun 25, 2006

    Although there is a train station in nearby Schaan, the options are very limited from there. It is far better to take a bus from Sargans or Buchs in Switzerland, or perhaps from Feldkirch in Austria. The Switzerland buses are ajacent to the train stations and run very frequently through Vaduz and the lower valley. I found there was ample room for my suitcase. The Swiss Pass also covers the Liechtenstein bus routes. There are signs indicated which buses serve Liechtenstein. The ride in to Vaduz is scenic, so it may be nice to sit by the window.

    From Zurich, it is best to take a train to Sargans direct and then make the single bus connection to Vaduz. Coming from the Bodensee or St. Gallen, Buchs would be the likely entry point.

    Bus to and in Liechtenstein

    by cynthi Updated Feb 19, 2005

    To get from Zurich to Vaduz you take a train to either Buchs or Sarganes and from there you go with the bus to Vaduz (not hard to miss, because they say Liechtenstein on the side). Check out the SBB website for more info. If you decide to go from Vaduz to another town in Liechtenstein, why not by a day pass... for only 5 CHF!

    Riding on the bus in Liechtenstein was pretty funny, because you got the impression that everyone knew each other... lots of people were just meeting up by chance on the bus.

    Vaduz is not real big, most of the interesting points you can reach on foot.
    Parking is possible downtown in the parking garage, it's well marked with street signs.

    Despite its small size, Liechtenstein has public transport to match its size: This tourist train runs 35 minute round trips.
