Uncovering Europe's best budget hotels since 2001.
If you’re like us, the accidental Swiss invasion of Liechtenstein last week reminded you yet again of that single afternoon you spent exploring Vaduz, eyes wide open.
The tiny Alpine microstate occupies just a sliver between Switzerland and Austria. In addition to being a very small country, the principality has a striking tourism site, outfitted in an attractive pairing of plum and strawberry hues. Check it out. It’s really a very nice color palette.
As you might expect, the site devotes a lot of time and energy to winter sports activities, primarily skiing and snowboarding. Summer activities aren’t neglected, though, and neither is the principality’s wine. The Swiss “Gastronomy and Wine” circuit itinerary makes one of its eight stops in Liechtenstein, which has a remarkable 178 wine growers among its 35,000-strong population.
Liechtenstein’s charms aren’t just physical. Modern architecture fans in particular will find the striking cube of a structure that houses the Museum of Fine Arts in Vaduz very pleasing.
