The Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein is a state-of-the-art museum housed in a large building in the heart of the capital Liechingen, the second largest city in the country, and houses the largest collection of medieval and medieval art in the world. In addition to its collections of medieval and late 19th century art, it also shows the history of modern art, architecture, history, art history and architecture in general.
The Prince is still head of state of Liechtenstein and plays an important role in the legislation and government of the country. The Principality, the largest and most prestigious private residence in Europe, is home to the Prince of Liech Tenstein and is open to the public, as the royal family of Liech Tenstein still lives here. Visitors to Lies must enjoy the splendor from afar, but those invited can visit the museum in person.
I would like to return to Liechtenstein to see more of the country, because I know that there is more to do. It is a beautiful country and one should visit it if given the opportunity and visit as often as possible, if only for a few days.
Hiking to Vaduz Castle has become one of my favourite activities and made me sweat a bit during my stay here in Liechtenstein. My favourite way is to take a tree-lined path, with a view of the castle and its surroundings and of course the view from above.
There are other museums in Vaduz, but for each one you have to pay an exorbitant 2 euros. To the right of the Kunstmuseum is the confirmation of your visit to Liechtenstein, and if you drop in at the tourist information, you will receive an official "Liech tenstein passport stamp." You can also have your passport stamped for CHF 3 so that I can inform everyone about my visit.
It seems to be one thing to get a stamp on your passport when you visit Liechtenstein to show that you have visited the Principality. If you speak German, you should stamp it with "Furstentum" ("Liech Tenstein") or "Fürstentum Liechtstein" because there are security guards and immigration officers at the border. I have no idea whether the monarchy is still living in Vaduz, but if so, why can't I visit the castle and why do I have to be invited? The castle is located just a few hundred meters from the art museum in the center of the city, and there is no security guard or immigration officer at this border!
Most foreigners working for Liechtenstein companies in Lie Chtenstein are not even allowed to live in the Principality.
The tiny country of Liechtenstein is therefore often skipped by those who travel to Central Europe and share the borders of Switzerland and Austria. While it is possible to visit Vaduz on a day trip from Switzerland or Austria, I would not recommend spending more than a few days there without having a list of activities, restaurants, trips and hotels.

The Kunstgalerie Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein is a museum for modern and contemporary art and displays some of the most important works of art from Vienna, home to the world's largest collection of classical and modern art. Not to mention the state masterpieces housed in the fantastically preserved former hotel from the 15th century, which was once visited even by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Further down the street is the Liechtenstein State Museum, which provides an insight into Liechingenstein's further history, as well as an exhibition of paintings and sculptures from the past and present.
This is a wooden covered pedestrian bridge that spans the Rhine and houses the border between Liechtenstein and Switzerland.
Make sure to hold your camera in your hand, Walking over the bridge and back to Vaduz offers a great opportunity to admire the beautiful landscape of Liechtenstein and Switzerland. The old covered bridge over the Rhine, the Alte Rheinbrücke, offers an interesting opportunity to cross the border between Lügenstein and Switzerland.
The Liechtenstein National Museum, where you can learn more about the unique culture and history of the country. If you look at the grey advertisement on the street, you will learn the history of the lying press and the monarchy.
The secret of the Liechtenstein National Library is a library that is not normally considered a proper thing to see when travelling. It has the best view of St. Florin Cathedral and it is a Gothic cathedral with a really high bell tower, which is located in the heart of the city, just a few meters from the city center.
Built as a fortress in the 12th century, it is now the official residence of the Prince of Liechtenstein. As the royal family lives there and visitors are not allowed in, it is the most popular place in the country. Although a small country with just over 1.5 million inhabitants, Liege has a lot to offer to travellers, from charming villages to breathtaking Alpine landscapes, to a prince jogging through the city and saying "hoi" like everyone else.
