    Liechtenstein

    Major Tourist Attractions: Vaduz Castle, Kunstmu Liechtenstein, Gutenberg Castle, Vaduz Cathedral

    Liechtenstein is a great vacation stop if you enjoy both winter and summer activities. Located between Switzerland and Austria in Central Europe, making it the only country to lie completely within the Alps.

    Considered to be the richest country in the world, the tiny Principality of Liechtenstein is just over 60 square miles and home to less than 40,000 people. Liechtenstein is located between Switzerland and Austria in Central Europe, making it the only country to lie completely within the Alps.

    The food in Liechtenstein is greatly influenced by its neighbors, Austria and Switzerland. France, Italy, and Scotland also play a role in the country’s drink culture. Liechtenstein’s national dish is Käsknöpfle, a hearty pasta-like dish with melted cheese.

    If you are an oenophile, don’t miss Liechtenstein’s wines. Vineyards are visible along the main road in Vaduz, and local wines are served at restaurants in the area. Be sure to pay a visit to Hofkellerei des regierenden Fürsten von Liechtenstein, the wine cellars of the Prince of Liechtenstein. Craft beer lovers should visit Liechtensteiner Brauhaus in Schaan and PrinzenBräu in Balzers.

    If you’re interested in skiing and other winter activities, visit Liechtenstein between December to April, but if you want to enjoy the outdoors and warmer temperatures, consider May through October.

    Liechtenstein uses the Swiss Franc (CHF) as its currency and German is the primary language you’re likely to hear spoken. Do note though it’s a dialect of German, common in eastern Switzerland, Baden-Württenberg, and parts of Austria. Due to the country’s size, there is no airport. It’s easiest to visit via car or public transportation like train or bus. Liechtenstein is Catholic, which means that on Sundays, the streets are eerily quiet, except for some tourist shops.

    In Liechtenstein, you can:

    • Get close to Schloss Vaduz, Liechtenstein’s castle home to the royal family
    • Visit a ski museum in Vaduz
    • Check out the best views of the Swiss Alps in Triesenberg
    • Visit Balzers, home to a Gothic castle and church
    • Take your family to the winter resort of Malbun
    • Learn about the history and culture of Liechtenstein at the Liechtenstein National Museum
    • Sample beer at one of the country’s two breweries
    • Take a tour of Telser Distillery
    • Visit the wine cellars of the Prince of Liechtenstein
    • Explore Princes’ Way Hike (Fürstensteig)
    • Go cross country skiing in Steg
    • Tour the Postage Stamp Museum
