Tourist Attractions in Liechtenstein
Other Popular Destinations
One of the smallest nations in Europe, Liechtenstein is a land of castles, villages, and lovely countryside. A great way to see the country during the summer months is to spend some time hiking on the well established trails that surround many of the small villages. Located across the Rhine River from Switzerland, Liechtenstein is dominated by mountains and extremely picturesque.
Vaduz is the capital city and the primary destination for most tourists. The 12th C Schloss Vaduz stands as a landmark above the city, and is a testament to its long history, as are the ruins of Wildschloss. One of the main attractions is the State Art Gallery, with a permanent collection and temporary displays. Liechtenstein is known throughout the world for its fine craftsmanship in postal stamps, making the Post Museum another worthwhile stop.
Just south of Vaduz is Triesen, a traditional village with old homes. From here there are numerous walking trails for those who want to get some exercise and enjoy the scenery.
