Places to See in Liechtenstein

 

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.

The biggest museum is called the Kunst Museum which is displaying the art works of masters like Rembrandt among others. 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.

The Corripo Village in Switzerland

 

Corippo is in Locarno in Switzerland. It’s basically a bunch of gray stone houses and black slate roofs in the slopes of the mountain. The image of this charming village does not stop anyone to wonder. Why? This is because the village is inhabited by 12 people only. Corripo was declared the smallest municipality in Switzerland.

Corippo is located in the Valle Verzasca, Locarno, 12 kilometers north of the Lake Vogorno. Close to this charming town, you come to the border with Italy (20 km).

The rustic houses, for that matter, are built with beautiful local granite called Ticino. The houses are still maintained the same as they looked several centuries ago. The Church of the Blessed Virgin Annunciata in the 17th century was so exquisite, that it had to be protected as a World Heritage Site. The title was given in 1975.

So hard to reach, the decline in its population has always been one of the biggest problems here. The bulk of the population loss has occurred in the last 150 years when it lost 94% of the total.
