St Florin Cathedral


The former parish church of St Florin was given the status of cathedral in 1997 with the setting up of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vaduz. The stone structure with a 45m-high tower was built in 1874 and designed by Friedrich von Schmidt from Vienna. It sits at the southern end of the pedestrianised zone.
