While the principality of Liechtenstein itself is a compact Alpine country surrounded by, serene-mountainous villages, Vaduz, its capital is where all the tourism action lays. Vaduz, is not only, the capital of Liechtenstein but also, a historic 12th-century city with its roots tracing to the times of Faduzes manuscripts. During our short visit to Liechtenstein, this is the city we happened to stumble upon to get a taste of Europe’s fourth smallest country. Situated alongside the tranquil Rhine River, this small town of Vaduz is best explored through a tram (train) ride. The small red-colored tram runs on the scenic-tracks of Liechtenstein at 1 PM and 4.30 PM every day while the train journey itself lasts for forty minutes.
Ride the Dotto Muson River 1804
During this panoramic journey soaked-in sweetness of, a centuries-old culture, the shadows of thick bushy Vaduz trees, slowly and gradually take you towards the Monarchy’s dream palace and other notable landmarks. All through the journey, the Dotto Muson River 1804 train enabled the guided tour in twenty-nine languages, which seemed to be helpful to almost every passenger on board. We were made to select our language as soon as we boarded the train which, resulted in easy comprehension.
Vaduz Museum to Palace
Starting with Liechtenstein art museum, which is known to be safeguarding the most-comprehensive and ancient collections of European art. If exploring this area on your own then we recommend you visit the Post Office and Stamp Museum, which traces the historic-events through some-of-the-oldest European stamps. For sports enthusiasts, there’s both cross-country Skiing for winter, as well, hiking for summer. Although, you can take a trip to the Ski Museum throughout the year where you will find the winter sports history of Liechtenstein from the beginning until today. But to experience the real Liechtenstein, you ought to take a trip to either the Vaduz or the Gutenburg Castle. These Palaces represent the Monarchy of the principality of Liechtenstein at its best.
