Cycling in Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein In A Nutshell

The vast majority of the fifteen minutes you'll spend in Liechtenstein will involve wondering why the hell the country exists at all. In every respect that matters it is basically the dullest canton in Switzerland, and that's up against some serious competition. Its biggest tourist draw is a dentures factory.

The capital Vaduz is as memorable as a book you haven't read.

Where and When I Went

Map of Liechtenstein

7th July 2011, for about 20 minutes

Liechtenstein's Scenery

Its own scenery is mostly rubbish. The nice things you can see are in Switzerland or Austria.

Liechtenstein's Road Quality

Excellent, but then again you'd expect that of one of the richest countries in the world.

Liechtenstein's Accommodation & Costs

I mistakenly bought a kebab that cost about a tenner. Luckily I didn't stop over.

Language

Swiss German. Don't worry. You won't be there long enough to communicate.

Neighbouring Countries

This is the most important section on this page. You won't be able to get out of there quick enough. Your options are Switzerland and Austria. I'd go with the latter unless you're closely related to someone called Rothschild.

Reasons To Go To Liechtenstein

To get from Austria to Switzerland, or vice versa, to tick off yet another dream on your dentures-related bucket list.
