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 60 square miles, 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.
