Quick Visit To Liechtenstein’s Capital

Vaduz

The Principality of Liechtenstein is one of the smallest, but also the richest countries in the world. History gently blends with contemporary art in the streets of its capital Vaduz, which in my view is one of the cleanest cities in Europe. Despite its small size, there are great things to see.

Engage With Art

Städtle Street

This pedestrian zone spreading from town hall to the Parliament and National Archives offers shops, restaurants, cafés, and is packed with museums of all kind. If you fancy history, fine art or even post stamps, Städtle lets you explore all of that.

Set Among Trees

Schloss Vaduz

Overlooking the city for centuries, Vaduz Castle is for sure the most iconic landmark in the country. It’s home to the Princely Family of Liechtenstein and therefore is not open to the public. Getting there from Städtle street takes around 20 minutes of walking uphill.

Seeking A View

Triesenberg

Following the road going up from Vaduz Castle, you come to Triesenberg. Municipality that rewards visitors with traditional architecture and breathtaking views of the Alpine Rhine valley. There’s no better spot to enjoy your afternoon cup of coffee.

Jump To Switzerland

Alte Rheinbrücke

The bridge connecting Liechtenstein and Switzerland is the last remaining wooden bridge over the river Rhine in the Alps. It’s used mostly by pedestrians and cyclists and sometimes, you might meet a horse too. Don’t forget to take a photo at the border.
