Liechtenstein: A Serene Slice of Europe

Liechtenstein: A Serene Slice of Europe, Vaduz, Liechtenstein (B)

As the last remnant of the Holy Roman Empire, Liechtenstein is a place with history etched into every building and some of Europe’s best mountain scenery. Undoubtedly, Lichtenstein is worth visiting, despite having a population of fewer than 40,000 people and being smaller than almost any other country you could think of.

Between the mountaintop views and the unique Liechtensteinian architecture waiting for you in Vaduz, there’s enough here for anyone who prefers the quieter things in life. Here’s our guide to Liechtenstein and what you can see there.

One of the best reasons to visit Liechtenstein, this secluded mountainside castle is one of the best things to see in Liechtenstein’s capital of Vaduz. The castle itself is over 700 years old, yet went through a restoration process back in the early 1900s. Despite this, the castle still has the original feeling and doesn’t look as though it’s being restored into a tourist trap.

Unfortunately, the castle is not open to the public, yet that doesn’t stop people from climbing the hill and walking up to its perimeter. Just make sure that you don’t get too close. Liechtenstein’s royal family still lives inside! You can also get some great pictures of the landscape from the hillside whilst you’re up there. ......
