Quick Visit To Liechtenstein’s Capital

Vaduz

The Principality of Liechtenstein is one of the smallest, but also the richest countries in the world. Visitors coming to its capital dive into the contrast of history mixed with contemporary art in the streets. Vaduz is, in my opinion, one of the cleanest cities in Europe. Despite being small, there are great things to see.

Following the road going up from Vaduz Castle, you come to Triesenberg. A municipality which 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

This 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, but if you are lucky, you might meet a horse too. Don’t forget to take a photo at the border.
