Vaduz, Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein is about a 45 minute drive from Appenzell. About half of the drive consisted of the one lane road where you just hope nobody is coming around the curve ahead. There are also the fun times of trying to get around tractors on the road.

Liechtenstein is a small country with Switzerland to the west and south and Austria to the east and north. There is about 35,000 people in the country that covers 62 square miles. They have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the world at 1.5%. We visited Vaduz, the capital.

There really isn’t much to do there and we arrived before most tourists. You can pay 3 Euros to get you passport stamped.  You can also walk up the hill to the castle. The castle is closed to the public since the prince still lives in the castle. They have a celebration once a year where they open the castle to the residents and everybody has a beer.

A random fact of Liechtenstein is that dentures are one of their major exports.
