Welcome to About Liechtenstein
The insiders guide to the Principality of Liechtenstein
Nestled on the Eastern bank of the River Rhine in the Alps of central Europe, Liechtenstein is a reminder of the empires of yesteryear. The Fürstentum, or Principality ofLiechtenstein, with it's central position in Europe, was involved in many of the historic conflicts that helped shape the continent.
Today, Liechtenstein has one of the highest standards of living in Europe and a highly educated workforce - what other country can boast that it imports Austrian, German and Swiss labour on a daily basis? You will see the influence the Alps and the river Rhine have on the country, the industry, sport, history and tourism of Liechtenstein and surrounding areas.
This website explores the 11 village communities that make up the country - the capital - Vaduz - and the villages of the upper country or Oberland - Schaan, Balzers, Triesen, Triesenberg and Planken; and the villages of the lower country or Unterland - Eschen, Mauren, Gamprin, Ruggell and Schellenberg.
This is an insider's guide into the country, its people, industries and traditions. You can use it to explore the country and use this website to plan your trip, or to find your ideal business partners. The Principality of Liechtenstein is well worth a visit.
