It may be tiny (it is the sixth smallest country in the world) but what Liechtenstein lacks in size, it makes up for in beauty. Nestled between Austria and Switzerland, Liechtenstein is the only country lying entirely in the Alps, the highest and most extensive mountain range in Europe.

Liechtenstein made its debut into society in 1712 and formed part of the Holy Roman Empire until 1806, when it became an independent principality. It is still ruled by a monarchy. Vaduz Castle is the official residence of Hans-Adam II, the reigning prince of Liechtenstein.

But there is so much more to this tiny European country than thrones and castles. Liechtenstein is renowned for its excellent mountain hiking trails, interesting museums, and sensational skiing.

With about 77 hiking trails lacing through the surrounding Alps, Liechtenstein is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers. Some of the most spectacular trails include: Fürstin-Gina-Weg, Drei-Schwestern-Steig, and Fürstensteig.

For culture lovers and art aficionados, Vaduz is home to a number of museums and galleries. The Liechtenstein State Art Gallery showcases a brilliant collection of contemporary artwork, while the Liechtenstein National Museum offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of the country.

Note: Purchase an Adventure Pass to gain access to swimming pools, museums, and the public transport.
