Over The Town

Vaduz Castle

Vaduz Castle has been overlooking the town for centuries and is undoubtedly one of the country’s most famous sights. It’s the official residence of the Princely Family and therefore is not open to the public. It has a long history that stretches back to the 12th century.

Jump To Switzerland

Old Rhine Bridge

The bridge connecting Liechtenstein and Switzerland is the Alps’ last remaining wooden bridge across the Rhine river. It’s mostly used by pedestrians and cyclists, but you may occasionally meet a horse too. Don’t forget to take a picture at the border.
