Except you don’t, because all of that isn’t true. You’ll know of its name, you’ll now that it is extremely small (the fourth-smallest in Europe, behind just Vatican City, Monaco and San Marino) and you’ll probably know that you aren’t sure how to spell Liechtenstein. Don’t worry, we’re here to fill in the gaps, and you might be surprised by the charm that waits in these tranquil streets and serene hills.
Vaduz is the capital, a bustling metropolis of just under 5,500 people, home to more vineyards than you presume and all the quaint charm that comes with a village-sized mountain capital. The Princes of Liechtenstein still rule over the people of the principality, although ‘rule’ might not be the most accurate of words, a country that was invaded by Switzerland in 2017 but nobody noticed. It is that sort of place.
Only the brave dare take on the monumental task of summing up Vaduz in barely a handful of words, but we are willing to take on that challenge. This is Vaduz In Your Pocket, your expert guide to a city that might actually fit inside your pocket.
