"Welcome to the industrial capital of Liechtenstein" Schaan by yumyum

Schaan Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 31 photos

We came to Liechtenstein on a day trip from Zurich. We walked from Vaduz to Schaan to have a quick look at the main sights before catching a bus. On the photo you see the landmark of Schaan, the St. Laurentius church. The snowy mountain in the background are already in Switzerland.

Schaan is one of the oldest settlements in Liechtenstein and traces go back 6000 years. Today's Schaan is a merger from the Roman village St. Peter and the alemanic village St. Laurentius. Schaan was first mentioned around 850 as such.

    Looks very cosy. Sorry, Sonja - of course I meant Liechtenstein - long staying at home makes me stupid. Irina

    If the industrial capital of Liechtenstein looks like on your intro pic, I wonder how does the agricultural capital look like? Thanks, Sonja, for sharing!
