At the end of the road from Vaduz, the 1600m-high resort of Malbun feels – in the nicest possible sense – like the edge of the earth. It’s not really as remote as it seems and in high season Malbun is mobbed. However, generally it’s perfect for unwinding, especially with the family.
Away from the capital, Liechtenstein’s big draw is its magnificent Alpine scenery, best savoured in slow motion on foot or by bicycle. Serene mountain villages like Triesen, Balzers and Schaan are great for slipping away from the crowds and tiptoeing back to nature for a few days.
