Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein is the 6th smallest country in the world, located in between Switzerland and Austria and is only 25km long. Why bothering traveling to a country this small? Because, why not! It is an adorable little country, filled with friendly people and tasty treats! And plus you can say that you walked across an entire country before, bucket list item!

Getting there:
Liechtenstein has no airport, no train station, and about three buses. Seems almost impossible to get there but there is an easy way from both Switzerland and Austria. We were coming from Zürich we took the early train to Sargans and from there, you’ll find the light green colored buses that will take you into the city center of Vaduz (tickets can be purchased from the driver onboard).

Exploring the capital city: Vaduz
It is hard to say that this is a city if you have ever been to a city before. It is more of a town. But nevertheless it is adorable and when you get off the bus, make sure you stop at the tourist center and get a €2 passport stamp.

We attempted to make it our goal to walk across the whole country, which would take about 3 hours; depending on your speed, determination, fitness level and ability to focus on not get lost. Needless to say, we didn’t quite make it.

Alte Rheinbrücke – the bridge connecting two countries
Before leaving to the country of Liechtenstein, you have to walk to the bridge: ‘Alte Rheinbrücke’ an old wooden bridge that crosses the over the Rhine. While crossing the bridge in the very center you are standing in between the country of Liechtenstein and Switzerland…pretty cool, pretty cool!

  1. Haha, thanks for sharing. I’m living now more than 30 years about ~350km from Liechstenstein and haven’t been there yet. Guess I’ll drop by next fall, when I’m visiting Switzerland. Funny though: For such a small country, I actually met someone from Liechstenstein on one of my travels (What are the chances?). Seems folks from there are pretty chill: Swiss Army Recruits have marched into this country multiple times, “invading” Liechstenstein (they actually got lost – this happens a lot. 😉 ). Now folks from Liechstenstein went like “Oh well, we’re cool. This can happen…”
