"Vaduz - Liechtenstein's wealthy capital" Vaduz by Airpunk
Vaduz Travel Guide: 66 reviews and 205 photos
Vaduz is not only the capital of Liechtenstein but has a history which is often synonimous with the fate and history of the country. Vaduz castle was owned by the Wardenberg family up to the 15th century and whoever ruled over the region has its seat in Vaduz Castle. It was in 1719 when the principality of Vaduz was united with Schellenberg under the Liechtenstein family and became the principality known today. Today, Vaduz is the political, economical and cultural centre of the country.
Vaduz has a good history museum where you will see an interesting exhibition about the history of the country. The modern art museum has exhibits of renown modern artists while the post museum is recommended to those people interested in philately. Other places of interest include Vaduz Castle, the old wooden Rhine Bridge and St. Florin's Cathedral. To eat and sleep, most places here are far out of range for the budget traveller. Liechtenstein's largest city and transport hub, Schaan, is a neighbour to Vaduz and can be reached by bus or even walking. Options there are a little cheaper than in Vaduz but still far more expensive than in most of western Europe.
