VADUZ THE CAPITAL OF LIECHTENSTEIN
The main attraction of the city is, undoubtedly, the Castle of Vaduz, official residence of the Prince, located on a plateau from which you can enjoy a splendid panoramic view.
It has been the property of the royal house since 1712 and for this reason, its interiors cannot be visited. You are, however, allowed to wander around the perimeter of its gardens and admire it from close up, the woods surrounding the castle make it a real fairy tale place and well worth the visit.
One of the smallest states in Europe. Vaduz a typical alpine town and capital of Liechtenstein.
The prince's wine collection is also open to visitors at the Hofkellerie, where you can take part in the tasting of local wines.
In the centre of Vaduz, there are several museums, including the natural history exhibition and Liechtenstein National Museum, where you can see ancient collections, telling the history of the Principality since Roman times.
The best known museum, however, is the Kunst museum of modern art, full of exhibitions within a fascinating modern structure.
Also worth a visit is the Postal Museum, quite small but containing all the national stamps up to the present day, a paradise for fans.
The only church in the city is the Cathedral of St. Florin, a splendid building in neo-Gothic style.
Vaduz, on the other hand, has a wealth of mountain panoramas you can reach in the peace and quiet of nature. One of the greatest places is, along the Rhine, an excellent hiking and biking trail, with a striking mountain backdrop.
