Liechtenstein, an alpine country in central Europe is a perfect destination for making your holidays enjoyable. Liechtenstein is well known for its scenic beauty. Liechtenstein has some unique characteristic that always attract the visitors. I was lucky enough to get the chance enjoying holidays with my beautiful wife in Liechtenstein. My wife and I had a great time in this beautiful country. The time that we spent in this country would always remain very special because it brought us closer to each other. We selected Liechtenstein for our holydays, because we just wanted to get rid of all sorts of hassles of our daily life and wanted to taste the beauty of Liechtenstein. We wanted to spend some beautiful moments together and Liechtenstein fulfilled our zeal. It’s a perfect destination for those who want to spend some special moments with their partners. We spent great moments in this stunning country and I am very happy to share our experience with all.
Surrounded by Switzerland to the west and south and by Austria to the east and north; Liechtenstein is a beautiful country filled with abundant beauty. It is the smallest country situated on the banks of the Rhine in central Europe. Vaduz and Schaan is the capital and biggest town of the country. The official language of Liechtenstein is German. This beautiful country is one of the richest countries in the world.
We wanted to visit a country which is very much helpful for the travelers and adventurous too. We reached Zurich airport by our flight, which was the main airport nearby to Liechtenstein. There is no airport in Liechtenstein, because of its size. Then we took a bus in order to reach Liechtenstein. We were able to reach Vaduz, the capital of Liechtenstein without any sort of hassle. Public transport was very much effective here. We had pre-booked a room in a hotel named “Park hotel Sonnenhof”. We headed to our hotel. The hotel staff gave us a warm welcome and showed us the way to our room. The room was very spacious and it was looking lovely. Their customer service was really excellent. Then we took our lunch at their Michelin star restaurant. After the lunch we went out to visit the surroundings of the hotel.
At first, we went to Liechtenstein National Museum where all national treasures were opened for the tourists. We found national history, cultural history and natural history of Liechtenstein. Actually we had learnt so many things about the small country from that museum. We were amazed to see their extraordinary variety. It was very well organized. It seemed more interesting and attractive to use hand held audio devices available in multiple languages. That’s why we loved that museum a lot. It’s a great place to understand the history and culture of Liechtenstein.
We had heard about the excellence of Liechtenstein center; so we visited there to discover Liechtenstein at a glance. Here we were amazed to see various films and video footage of this small country. We purchased Liechtenstein unique stamp from there. There was also an info desk. We saw some exclusive monuments that were really praise worthy.
After that we went out to see the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, which was established in the year of 2000 to serve the international modern and contemporary art. It was treated as the national gallery of Liechtenstein. The stunning architecture of the building charmed us a lot. Then we had found a nice café there to sit and relax. The museum was very spacious and fantastic. It was our second day in this beautiful country and we had already seen many places. Our excitement never faded and we were keen to explore the magnificence of Liechtenstein. After watching the Kunstmuseum; we went back to our hotel and made us fresh with proper shower. After that we had our dinner in the adjacent restaurant and went to the bar for a while to enjoy. Our journey in Liechtenstein has started on an excellent note. We were very happy and looking forward to see more of this lovely country.
The next day, we planned to go to the Hoffkellerei (wine cellars) of the prince of Liechtenstein. It was a memorable experience for us. Personally I like to try local wines where ever I travel. I tasted the wine prepared by them and its taste took me to another world. Frankly saying, the taste of that wine was out of the world and it certainly became my favorite. I would love to visit this place again to taste that wine. If you love wine then you must visit this place. The service is very quick and excellent. It’s a paradise for wine lovers.
Postage Stamp Museum is very much popular among the tourists in Liechtenstein. We didn’t want to miss the chance to visit this brilliant place; so we made it our next stop. The museum mostly bears rare stamps from Liechtenstein, historical documents, devices and special exhibits. I am fond of stamp collection and it is my hobby. That’s why I loved the museum very much though it was small. After that we visited the markets of Vaduz city. The markets of Vaduz are the main shopping area in the country. We walked for a while and had some shopping for us. We also enjoyed the Balzers castle, a spectacular gothic castle. Actually we spent our most of the times in the Vaduz city. We stayed there for 4 days.
After enjoying 4 days in Vaduz, then we set our journey to Malbun. We enjoyed road biking, great hiking and mountain biking terrain there. We also enjoyed skiing and snowboarding there at affordable price. One day we woke up early in the morning and went to the mountains on the east side of the river. We were amazed to have an incredible and attractive view over Vaduz and Switzerland. It was really admirable. We spent some magical moments in Malbun. It’s a great place to enjoy some adventurous activities. The beautiful ambiance of Malbun makes the experience even more enchanting.
We spent 3 days in Malbun and enjoyed every single moment. We visited the Malbi Park at first. It is a small and beautiful park. It was really a fantastic place. It seemed to be the perfect place for skiing. We took many photographs there. We decided to take pleasure of skiing and we really had an incredible experience. We did it for the very first time but the experience was great and we would love to try it again. Ski region Malbun was the perfect place to enjoy the vacation with the family with wide range of winter activities and relaxing recreation. We saw huge crowd there.
Then we set our beautiful journey towards Galina Falcon Center. It was an exciting and wonderful experience for us. We enjoyed our time with the beautiful birds like eagles, falcons, hawks and eagle-owls. We learned a lot of things about the birds and their habits. It was an extraordinary experience for us. After that we went out to enjoy Sareis Chairlift. We took chairlift ride that brought up to 2000 meters elevation. It was really very thrilling. We enjoyed a wonderful view of the valley and the peaks. There was a café at the top that was nice. It was really a great place to enjoy the beauty of the Alps.
Liechtenstein gives a lot of emphasis on the tourism sector. The roads, the castles, the mountains, the museums gave us a lot of adventure. We enjoyed their local foods as well as some Chinese and Thai foods. Actually Liechtenstein is a prosperous country with all sorts of modern facilities.
Our one week holidays in Liechtenstein certainly became the most memorable holiday of our life. We earned many undying memories from this country. If you are looking for a place where you may enjoy the blend of history, beauty and adventure; then Liechtenstein is your destination.
