Road Trip Facts

LIECHTENSTEIN

 

Is it possible to go on a road trip in the sixth smallest country in the world? Of course it is, it just doesn’t take very long.

The country is 24 kilometres long and 12 kilometres wide. The advantage of this is that you can really see the whole country in a relatively short time, while still getting out of the car periodically to enjoy some wonderful nature. It’s also worth it to marvel at Vaduz castle, where Hereditary Prince Alois of Liechtenstein conducts his state business.

Must Drive

From Vaduz to the Steg reservoir. A steep road with tight bends and magnificent views of the Alps and the Rhine valley.

Must-See

The twelve-kilometre Fürstensteig, one of Liechtenstein’s best-known hiking trails, leads across picturesque alpine meadows and offers magnificent panoramic views. But those who don’t like heights should beware – in some places the path is carved into steeply sloping rock faces.

Must-Eat

In this case it’s a must drink! Wine has been grown in Liechtenstein for more than 2,000 years. In addition to 100 part-time winegrowers, there are four wineries that produce some excellent product. This is particularly special because Liechtenstein wine is hardly ever exported.
