Liechtenstein, my Liechtenstein

By Michael J.W. Stickings

So you're a little bigger than we thought you were? Congratulations. Well done.

Although you're still the sixth smallest country in the world. And, of course, you're renowned mostly for your stamps, dental products, low taxes, and Swiss-like neutrality. But you're still a beautiful place.

Seriously. I've been there. It's lovely. I'm just happy I can finally blog about it -- no, not seriously, but here you are. My Liechtenstein post.

What to learn all about it? See here, here, and here (the official site) -- and, if you know German, here and here. And here's a nice picture of Vaduz, the capital, I found here:

  • German speaking in name perhaps - I speak decent German, but the Alamanisch dialect of Liechtenstein and my Hochdeutsch are mutually incomprehensible.

    Still, charming place, if a bit dull and the Prince has one of the worlds better art collections stashed away int his medieval fortress.

  • Very true, but of course that could be said about many parts of the "German"-speaking world.
