Top Tips

  • Want to save francs? Avoid peak season (school holidays in winter and summer) for better deals on rooms, and go for the lunch deal (tagesteller).
  • The closest international airport is in Zürich, which has frequent train connections to the border towns of Buchs and Sargans. From here buses run to Vaduz. Click on www.liemobil.li for timetables and tariffs.
  • This tiny country is easily explored on foot or by bicycle. For the latter, take advantage of the 15 FreeVeloPoint stands dotted across the country. See www.velopoint.li for details.
  • Your first port of call should be the Liechtenstein Center in Vaduz, where you can pick up the Museum & Adventure Pass, which yields free entry to some museums and use of the public transport network, plus discounts on cable cars, outdoor activities and more.

What to Take

  • Good walking shoes – Liechtenstein is a tiny country best appreciated on foot
  • Wet-weather gear because mountain weather can be very changeable
  • A small day pack for hiking in the mountains
  • Outdoor equipment you'll need to meet your requirements, such as ski gear
  • Europe electrical adaptor

What to Wear

Liechtenstein is a conservative country, so unless you are happy standing out, it's best to dress conservatively, especially if heading out to restaurants, clubs and bars. Pack warm clothing, even in summer, as mountain weather in places like Malbun can be very changeable. If you're into outdoor activities, make sure you bring appropriate clothing and footwear.
