INTRODUCTION

The Principality of Liechtenstein is a small, alpine German-speaking country doubly landlocked by Switzerland and Austria known for its medieval castles, alpine landscapes and villages linked by a network of trails. It is the last remnant of the Holy Roman Empire and an independent nation with very close ties to Switzerland. It enjoys a very high standard of living and is home to some incredibly beautiful mountain scenery. The principality's capital, Vaduz, is mainly a modern city and a major centre of commerce and international banking.

The winter snow sports season in Liechtenstein starts late November and lasts until the end of March. The best snow is usually from mid January to mid March.

HIKE & CYCLE:

The best time for outdoor activities in Liechtenstein is from June to October although you can expect a few rainy downpours during the months of June to August.

 

LGBTQ

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in Liechtenstein enjoy many, but not all, of the same rights as non-LGBT people. Same-sex sexual activity has been legal since 1989, and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation has been outlawed in some areas since 2016. Liechtenstein has recognised registered partnerships since 1 September 2011.

 

Despite Liechtenstein's reputation as a conservative Catholic nation, open and public discrimination against LGBT people is extremely rare and almost completely unheard of and the majority of the population support the legalisation of same-sex marriage.
