LIECHTENSTEIN DESTINATION GUIDE

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real Liechtenstein in a way like no other. A tiny pocket in the Alps, Liechtenstein is a dreamy land of soaring peaks, plunging valleys and cliffside castles. At just over 155 square kilometres, it’s Europe fourth-smallest country, and you can walk the length of Liechtenstein in a day. It’s bundled between Austria and Switzerland, and although it shares the Alps and the winding Rhine, there’s something different about Liechtenstein. It’s one of the world’s richest countries and last remaining principalities. It’s also one of the friendliest countries, where laidback Liechtensteiners will greet you with a ‘hoi’, and even the ruling Prince goes jogging around town. When you visit Liechtenstein with Trafalgar, we’ll explore ancient castles, palatial residences, gorgeous villages and a wealth of history in the country’s fantastic museums. We’ll also tour through one of Europe’s most remarkable landscapes, with scenic hikes like the Eschnerberg Trail and the Princes’ Way. From skiing in Malbun, to relaxing by the Rhine, Liechtenstein is magnificent. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.

What to pack for Liechtenstein

Experience Tick Thin Icon

Swiss francs

Joined in a monetary union with neighbouring Switzerland, Liechtenstein has used Swiss francs since 1920, so you’ll swap your euros for francs while visiting the country.

German phrasebook

German is the official language of Liechtenstein, so pack a phrasebook to help you learn a few words. If you can’t spare the space, download them to your Google Translate app offline.

Experience Tick Thin Icon

Camera

With an extraordinary landscape of Alpine wilderness and fairytale castles, Liechtenstein is a wonderfully photogenic country.

Experience Tick Thin Icon

An adaptor plug

Voltage in Liechtenstein is 230V and the sockets are of Type J with three round pins and Type C, with standard European 2-pin plugs.

Comfortable shoes

With some of Europe’s best hiking trails, and an area so small you can walk the length of the country in a day, a sturdy pair of walking shoes are essential in Liechtenstein.
