Fürstentum Liechtenstein


The Principality of Liechtenstein is located between Switzerland and Austria, an independent country since 1806. Prinz Hans Adam II rules this small country of 35,000 inhabitants and lives in the castle of Vaduz, the country's capital.


The Rhein River runs north along Liechtenstein's western border. I enjoyed several days again visiting Monica, my penpal of 27 years, and her family in Ruggell, the northern most town in Liechtenstein.





The cows on the mountains DO wear bells!




Triesenberg is one of eleven municipalities in Liechtenstein. The cemetary at this church is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen!





Es wäre toll wenn jemand in Liechtenstein auch mit "City daily photo" täglich ein Foto zeigen würde! Schau auf www.citydailyphoto.com

  1. Zounds! What gorgeous pictures of a gorgeous place! I knew from nothing about Lichtenstein, so appreciate this a lot, Safe Leif!

    Methinks there is a lot to see in Lichtenstein and I can see why you were hesitant to leave.

    Have a great 4th!
