Liechtenstein Travel Information


Liechtenstein Flag The Principality of Liechtenstein (German: Fürstentum Liechtenstein) is a landlocked country in central Europe. It is mostly mountainous, and lies entirely within the Alps, between Austria and Switzerland.

As of 2008, the population of Liechtenstein was estimated as being 35,446. The capital, Valduz, had a population of 5,100 as of 2009. However the largest town is Schaan, which had a population in 5,806 as of 2005.

Liechtenstein has a highly industrialised free market economy, and according to some sets of figures the highest GDP per capita in the world. It has more registered companies than citizens, and is known internationally for its low tax rates and provision of financial services. Liechtenstein is not a member of the European Union, but is a member of the European Economic Area (the free trade area incorporating both EU member states and other countries), as uses the Swiss Franc as its currency.

Product Description:
This unique book examines the history, culture, and inner workings of the seven smallest independent countries in Europe. These are among the oldest states on the continent and, despite their diversity, they have much in common. Most have relatively high per capita incomes and life expectancies, and relatively low unemployment. This narrative presents the unique issues that confront small countries, including maintaining their independence, economic viability, preserving their native languages, and sustaining their governments. The second part of the book describes each microstate in turn, showing how each one has met these challenges and adapted over time. These concise and engaging chapters contain cultural information on subjects including the arts, gastronomy, and popular tourist sites.

Product Description:
Liechtenstein Travel Guide. Tourism. A pocket-sized principality in the heart of Europe, Liechtenstein rarely tops anybody's bucket list of continental must-sees. Yet this tiny, landlocked nation offers more than you'd imagine: from long-standing history to sky-high mountains; cliff-hanging castles to odd cultural quirks. Many of Liechtenstein's historical highlights are located in the capital, Vaduz. While this tiny town may only have around 5,000 inhabitants, it also boasts an array of fascinating museums and galleries including the Liechtenstein National Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts and the FIS Ski and Winter Sports Museum as well as the atmospheric Prince's Wine Cellars and the neo-Gothic Vaduz Cathedral. All these attractions are watched over by the pretty Vaduz Castle, which remains the official residence of the Prince of Liechtenstein. Vaduz isn't Liechtenstein's only town of historical note. The second town, Schaan, is actually larger than Vaduz, and comes with its very own impressive church and Roman remains, while Balzers in the south west boasts what is perhaps Liechtenstein's most arresting fortification. There are also beautiful chapels to be found in lesser-visited villages like Triesen and Planken. And yet the true star of Liechtenstein is the remarkable nature. This country has arguably the most impressive landscape in Europe. Most of the peaks in Liechtenstein soar more than 2,000m (6,562ft) into the sky, making Liechtenstein a premier destination for skiing, hiking and mountain biking. Its shimmering lakes are also a big draw for swimmers. As well as its permanent attractions, Liechtenstein also excels when it comes to unusual events. Some of the fun annual highlights include the Monster Concert (where troupes of musicians and dancers dress in outlandish costumes and bang drums), the Cattle Drive (where cows and sheep are festooned in colourful garments and adorned with bells) and the LGT Alpine Marathon (where competitors from around the globe run for 26 miles through the mountains).

Product Description:

Liechtenstein - an Alpine curiosity? A haven for financial criminals? Or a success story in modern Europe? This book examines the reality behind the cliches. Excluded from the League of Nations in 1920 because it was thought too small, it is now an active member of the United Nations, the Council of Europe and other international organisations. Its history has been dramatic and precarious. Several times it was in danger of vanishing from the map, most recently in 1939. It has no natural resources beyond a hard-working and entrepreneurial population. Since the 1940s low taxes, liberal regulation and 'small government' have helped to transform it from an agrarian backwater into one of the most advanced high-technology industrial countries in Europe. Its manufacturing companies are important providers of employment to people from the surrounding region. Its flourishing financial services sector, although criticised in the past, is now better regulated than many others in Europe. Liechtenstein's constitution is a unique blend of strong monarchy, vigorous direct democracy and an active parliament.
There is a tradition of robust political debate but an underlying desire to reach consensus. The result is a high degree of political stability, one of the preconditions for the country's economic success, high standards of living and welfare and flourishing cultural life. The book analyses the reasons for Liechtenstein's political survival and economic success. It ends with a study of the prospects for this many-sided mini-state as Liechtenstein faces the challenges and opportunities of a changing Europe: a Europe that might even have some useful lessons to learn from Liechtenstein.
