Etiquette

Liechtenstein is fairly conservative – women did not get the right to vote until 1984.

  • Avoiding offence Remember where you are! Liechtenstein is its own country and the locals are very proud of their national identity. Avoid labelling them Swiss, Austrian or German!
  • Political conversation The prince is very popular, so try to avoid putting down the monarchy as a system of government when discussing politics.
  • Religious issues Liechtenstein is strongly Catholic. Avoid controversial religious topics and be aware that there usually isn't much going on on Sundays.
