Vaduz is the capital of the small principality of Liechtenstein, located between Switzerland and Austria. Vaduz is 17.5 km2 and has about 5,500 inhabitants. In accordance with this modest size, the micro-capital, which formally has no city rights, has a village rather than a city character. And so the core area of the Liechtenstein capitals, which stretches along the right bank of the Vorderrhein and is about ten km2 in size, is also logically called the “village of Vaduz”.
What country is Vaduz in?
It is mainly here that the public, economic and private life of the Vaduz people takes place. In addition to the village of Vaduz, six exclaves belonging to the municipality of Vaduz, surrounded by the territory of another municipality, are mainly used for agriculture away from the “capital hustle and bustle”. These are the forest areas of Dachsegg, Rüttistein and Forst lying north of the village of Vaduz, as well as the Vaduz Ried bordering on Schaan. The two alpine pastures in Liechtenstein’s southeast Hahnen-Pradamee and Hintervalorsch also belong to Vaduz.
In Vaduz you will find impressive architecture, historical and modern, art, museums, shopping opportunities and many sights over a length of a few hundred meters. A cultural treasure chest that you should take your time for. Probably nowhere else is there so much culture in such a small and manageable space.
in 1712, the county of Vaduz, created in the Middle Ages, came into the possession of the princes of Liechtenstein. At that time Vaduz became the place of residence, but only in 1938 also the permanent residence of the Liechtenstein princes. After the end of the Second World War, Vaduz, which was previously rather agrarian and poor, developed into a very wealthy community with an economic focus on international financial transactions.
