Tips

  • Sebastian Kowalke

    With 160 square kilometers, the Principality of Liechtenstein is one of the smallest countries in Europe. The princely residence sits enthroned high above the small town of Vaduz, the capital with a good 5,000 inhabitants. The medieval castle was expanded in the 16th and 17th centuries. The locals call Vaduz “the little town”, one that is worth visiting.
