Some tourist travel tips for Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein: Landmarks in the small principality

The Principality of Liechtenstein is nestled quietly between Austria and Switzerland and is often neglected at the expense of the surrounding European countries, which offer a long list of attractions.
33,000 people live in an area of ​​just over 160 square kilometers. Although one of the smallest countries in the world, the Principality of Liechtenstein deserves the attention of tourists – at least for the following reasons.

Vaduz Castle

Vaduz is the capital of the small principality, and its most famous landmark is Vaduz Castle, perched on a hill, 120 meters above the city. It is believed that the castle was first built here in the 12th century as a defensive fortress, and in the 18th century became the property of the princely family. At the beginning of the last century, the castle became the residence of the princes of Liechtenstein, and today you can see it only from a distance, as it is not open to tourists.

The Prince’s Road – the most beautiful mountain pass

Crossing the Retikon mountain range on the so-called Prince’s Road – this is the most famous route, which passes through alpine pastures, coniferous forests, picturesque panoramas and several extreme sections with stretched steel rope. The length of the transition is about 6 km and takes about 3 hours.

The Prince’s Winery

Fans of good wine should definitely visit the winery of the Prince of Liechtenstein. A walk through the vineyards and a tasting in one of the best parts of the Rhine Valley are a great idea to make the most of your time in Liechtenstein. The winery is located in Vaduz.

The winter resort of Malbun

Liechtenstein also has a ski resort located behind the southern chains of the Alps. Malbun has 23 km of slopes, 3 chair lifts (one of which has heated seats), as well as numerous facilities for children.
