Liechtenstein

Last updated: 9 November 2017
Situated between Austria and Switzerland, Liechtenstein is the last remains of the Holy Roman Empire. In the Alps and on the banks of the River Rhine, the country is known for its great natural beauty. It measures just sixty-two square miles, and there are only eleven villages in the country. Despite only granting women the vote in 1984, it boasts modern buildings and art galleries in its capital Vaduz.

Liechtenstein is landlocked. It has neither harbour nor airport. Its low taxes have attracted a large number of businesses to the country. Tourism and sports make up a large part of the country’s economy.

Tourists take ski lifts up into the Alps to ski in winter and to hike and enjoy the panoramic views in summer. Mountain trails connect charming villages and medieval castles.
