When you are planning to visit Switzerland, you might want to allot time and check out Liechtenstein. This is a small German speaking country with mountain scenery that shouldn’t be ignored by tourists. There are many who would find Vaduz to be a perfect trip for those quiet getaways. Vaduz is the capital of Liechtenstein and make it the base if you want to explore the country. This capital doesn’t boast much when it comes to architecture but the surrounding Alps makes up for it.
Perhaps Vaduz’s main highlight is the imposing Schloss Vaduz Castle which stands out from above the hill. Unfortunately tourists are not allowed to enter and explore its interior because the castle is still used as a royal residence. It is still worth going up the hill and strolling around its perimeter if you want to see the stunning city below. There is no doubt that Vaduz is meant for walking. You can explore the capital by just walking around by foot. If you walk around its streets, you can find different museums like the Ski Museum, the Postage Stamp Museum and the National Museum.

Vaduz is also a place that boosts vineyards which means you can find good bottles of wine. The most popular is Prince’s Wine Cellars where you can taste the best wines. Additionally, you can also find the lovely resort of Malbun. Hikers and sporting enthusiasts would simply love the place. It is cheap and less crowded compared to other nearby resorts. This is appealing to some visitors who want peace. Feldkirch is an historic Austrian town 15 minutes from Vaduz, which is the perfect place to turn back pages of history.
