Liechtenstein Trips - Tourist Information Hotels and Holiday Reservations
Although pretty small, Liechtenstein has a long and rich history, dating back to the fourteenth century. Liechtenstein is a wonderful country of fairy-tale castles cosy chalets, picturesque Rhine meadows and small quaint villages in the Alps with warm and hospitable people.
Divided from Switzerland only by the Rhine River, Liechtenstein is one of the smallest countries in Europe.
Liechtenstein is popular for its finely engraved postage stamps, illustrating the state’s history, monarchy, art, religion, natural landscapes and of course tourist attractions and leisure activities. Actually the postage stamps provide around twenty-five per cent of the entire government's income, and new series are emitted all the time. Liechtenstein’s capital city of Vaduz has a postal museum which will be appreciated by the collectors.
Every village in the country has a network of beautiful and well marked hiking and cycling routes. Actually only the marked hiking routes are around 150 kilometers in the alpine area and 119 kilometers in the valley, which having in mind the size of Liechtenstein is truly remarkable. Both Steg and Malbun are excellent starting points for tours in the mountain and Planken and Gaflei are starting points for the Drei Schwestern area. Liechtenstein’s tourist office offers brochures outlining the best hiking region and trails in the Unterland, the Oberland and the alpine area.
