The tiny European nation of Liechtenstein has close political and economic ties to Switzerland, but retains its cultural distinctness. It uses the Swiss currency and postal system, but remains autonomous. Liechtenstein is available to rent out as a country for corporate events, but is perhaps most commonly known for its postage stamps.  They are often very beautiful and entice tourists to make a stopovers to mail postcards. Philatists will enjoy the Postage Stamp Museum in the capital of Vaduz. Also in Vaduz is the Liechtenstein Kunstmuseum, with its art collections. Near the city are multitudes of hiking trails taking you through the surrounding alpine scenery. The ski resort of Malbun contains good downhill runs for skiers of all skill levels. Good hiking opportunities are also available around Malbun in warmer months. Liechtenstein contains a number of smaller villages that you can explore while admiring the setting.

Travel Tips from people who've been to Liechtenstein
On the way back to Austria from Switzerland, I decided to visit the very small country of Liechtenstein. It's a like a ghost country but I did manage to find an area in Vaduz to eat and even saw a couple of human beings!  I recall driving into a parking lot and my car was the only one there!  I even bought a red jacket at this store with a real life Liechtensteinian!!! She was quite friendly and obliging to allow a picture with me. Yes, she was born and raised in Liechtenstein, population of 33,000. In fact, to become a citizen of this country, I think the leader of the country has to actually approve you or something like that.
 
I spent all of 3 hours in this country and I think I pretty saw all of it!

The Dux chapel is called in German "Wallfahrtskirche Maria zum Trost auf Dux". If you want to visit it, then you will have a nice walk uphill of about 20 minutes. It is located between Hotel Dux and the monastery St. Elisabeth. Just on the parking behind the chapel there is a public toilet. The chapel is very pretty indeed. Around the chapel there is a praying path. On the chapel grounds there is also a statue of Pope Johannes Paul II who visited Liechtenstein on 8th September 1985. Original records of the first building are missing. But the present chapel goes back to 1743 and the tower to 1789. The hall outside goes back to 1829. It's the only chapel in all Liechtenstein which still has its baroque features.

For me, Vaduz held no charm. I was disappointed when I arrived there. I somewhat expected the town to be more old fashioned with but the majority of the town seems to be modern whit little to see. There is a small shopping Centre and the goods are Tax free so good value. There is the customary Irish bar, a small camp site which was pleasant enough. Some nice walks around the town and there a couple of castles, one of them being the royal residence of the Duke. Not a place for holidays but if your looking for somewhere to store all your millions then go there.
