It’s so rare to see an article on the tiny European state of Liechtenstein that I’ll forgive the fact that it’s mostly about something as dull as winetasting.
Liechtenstein is minute. You could drive in from one side of it and out the other in about ten minutes; you could pass it on the freeway that makes up its entire western border in just twenty minutes, without even knowing that it was there.
Vaduz, the capital city – perhaps town would be a better word for it – has no railway station of its own, the closest being in Schaan, to the north; but given the size of the country, this means it’s only about three kilometres away.
Trains run only a few times daily, between Buchs in Switzerland (3 minutes) and Feldkirch in Austria (18 minutes).
