Vaduz

Vaduz, affectionately nicknamed "Städtle", is the capital of the small Principality of Liechtenstein which borders on Switzerland in the west. The small town with its just over 5000 inhabitants impresses with cultural and culinary treasures. Its landmark is the medieval castle located high above the town and belonging to the royal family.
Great things come in small packages: the Principality of Liechtenstein measuring 160 square kilometres is one of the smallest but also most prosperous European states. In the west it borders on to Switzerland and from there extends between the banks of the Rhine and the Austrian province of Vorarlberg.

Vaduz, the capital, is the seat of the Landtag and government offices as well as the royal residence since 1939. The royal family lives in the town’s landmark, the medieval castle which was extended in the 16th and 17th centuries and is located high above Vaduz.

The modern art museum designed by the Morger, Degelo & Kerez team of architects is the cultural highlight. The prize-winning design attracts great numbers of architecture fans. The building houses international modern and contemporary art as well as parts from the royal collections.

In-depth information about the principality's history is available at the Liechtenstein Landesmuseum. Philatelists will find a visit to the Post Office and Stamp Museum (Briefmarkenmuseum) rewarding. And 100 years of ski history are presented at the Ski Museum.

The lively old town of the "Städtle" is perfect for leisurely strolls. And gastronomy is a well-established tradition here, with the Gasthof Löwen, for example, dating from 1380. The culinary top venues in Vaduz usually also have their own wine cellar since ideal hillside locations with chalky soil provide the perfect basis for local wines.

In the small principality excursion destinations are never far off: Triesenberg is starting point for many hikes and home to a Walser Museum. In winter, Malbun is a popular family ski area and Steg is an ideal destination for active Nordic ski enthusiasts and tobogganing fans.

Highlights

  • Liechtenstein art museum - one of the oldest and most comprehensive private collections in Europe housed in a modern museum building
  • Post Office and Stamp Museum - the stamps of the Principality of Liechtenstein are a must for philatelists

  • Triesenberg/Malbun/Steg - most important excursion, hiking, ski and cross-country skiing region in the Principality of Liechtenstein
  • Gastro and wine-growing tradition - vineyards, historic inns and top cuisine make a visit well worth it
