Visiting The 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.

Basic Information

Vaduz is the capital of the Principality of Liechtenstein – one of the smallest countries in Europe. The town is located along the Rhine River in the Alps and has around 6,000 inhabitants. The closest big international airport is located in Zurich, Switzerland which is around 80 km from Vaduz.

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.

Over The Town

Vaduz Castle

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

Seeking a View

Triesenberg

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 but sometimes you might meet a horse too. Don’t forget to take a photo at the border. Don’t forget to take a photo at the border of this time.
