Liechtenstein National Museum in Vaduz, Liechtenstein
Liechtenstein National Museum in Vaduz, Liechtenstein
The Liechtenstein National Museum is home to a permanent exhibition showcasing the history and culture of Liechtenstein as well as a number of temporary exhibitions. The Postage Stamp Museum in Vaduz is affiliated to the National Museum and displays artefacts and documents relating to the postage service in Liechtenstein. There is also a local history museum in Schellenberg giving an insight into life in the Principality around 1900.
Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein is a museum of modern and contemporary art at the heart of Vaduz. The museum building, opened in 2000, a black cube with a subtly reflective façade, sends out a strong message to the outside world. Inside, spacious exhibition rooms stretch out over two levels, of which the upper one receives daylight through a glass ceiling. The profile of the collection of Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, which is at the same time the state art collection of the Principality of Liechtenstein, is specifically defined by three-dimensional artworks: sculptures, installations and objects. A particular emphasis is on arte povera and post-minimal art. The collection is showcased in temporary presentations accompanying the major changing exhibitions of international 20 - and 21st-century art.
The new Hilti Art Foundation exhibition building was added to the Kunstmuseum in 2015. This important private collection from Liechtenstein comprises outstanding works of classical modernism and contemporary art. 130 years of art history are thus waiting to be experienced and discovered at Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein.

Liechtenstein National Museum
The origins of the Liechtenstein National Museum date back to the end of the 19th century, when the head of the government, Friedrich Stellwag von Carion (1852-1896), planned to create a museum in Vaduz Castle. Stellwag von Carion's aim at the time was to prevent Liechtenstein's cultural assets being sold abroad. He received support from Prince Johann II von Liechtenstein (1840-1929), who provided space in Vaduz Castle to exhibit the collection of objects to the public -- Vaduz Castle was not used as the residence of the Princely Family until 1938. From around 1910 onwards the Historical Association of the Principality of Liechtenstein, which was created in 1901, assumed responsibility for maintaining and extending the collection.
Comprehensive renovation work carried out at Vaduz Castle from 1904 until 1914 forced the museum to relocate. The next few decades saw the collection lead a no-madic existence, going on display in a number of buildings in Vaduz, including the seat of the government and the town hall.
From 1954 until 1967 the Historical Association showed the collection with the title 'National Museum' on the top floor of the newly constructed headquarters of the Liechtensteinische Landesbank in Vaduz.Von 1954 bis 1967 zeigte der Historische Verein die Sammlung im oberen Stockwerk des neu errichteten Landesbankgebäudes in Vaduz, und zwar unter dem Namen „Landesmuseum.
In 1967 the state purchased the building in Vaduz formerly known as the 'Taverne zum Adler' ('Eagle Inn') and converted the premises to house the collection. On 15 April 1972 the Liechtenstein National Museum was opened. In the same year the Historical Association's responsibility for the National Museum ended, with its function being assumed by the Liechtenstein National Museum Trust created in May 1972. A long-term loan (set out in a written contract in 1989) was established between the Historical Association and the Trust.
The museum was closed between 1992 and 2003 after construction work to extend the Landesbank opposite had caused serious damage to the building. Following a period of renovation and extension from 1999 until 2003, it reopened to the public on 28 November 2003.
Today the museum comprises three main buildings. The old National Museum and the connected Administrator's House showcase the history and culture of Liechten-stein, while the more recent extension includes the natural history collections and a series of temporary exhibitions.Two further museums are also affiliated to the Liechtenstein National Museum. The Bäuerliches Wohnmuseum in Schellenberg, which opened in 1994, shows the lifestyle and customs of the local farming community. The Postage Stamp Museum in Vaduz, which was founded in 1930, became part of the Liechtenstein National Museum in 2006.
A book detailing the history, collections, exhibitions and buildings of the National Museum was published in 2004 and is available in the museum shop and book stores.

Liechtenstein (Europe) Vacation Travel Video Guide
Travel video about destination Liechtenstein in Europe.
In the middle of the triangular border of Germany, Austria and Switzerland lies a treasure of the European Alps, the Principality of Liechtenstein. Hardly anywhere else in Central Europe has experienced such a rapid transformation from a dreamy agrarian state into one of the wealthiest countries in the world. Bendern, part of the village of Gamprin, is one of eleven municipalities and lies to the south-west side of the Eschner Mountain. The view glides across the foothills of the romantic Rhine Valley and up to the massive Swiss Schwäg-Alp. The Schaedler ceramics workshop in Nendeln is one of the oldest commercial enterprises in Liechtenstein and features handmade works of art. Since 1836, they have specialised in earthenware, exclusive ceramic art and tilted stoves. Schaan forms the border to the Oberland, a charming municipality with an attractive town centre. A parish hall and provision of good restaurants reflect the success of the global companies that are located there. Liechtenstein Castle looms majestically above Vaduz, the capital. Saint Florin is located on the edge of the old town it was built in 1868 in Neo-Gothic style and in 1997 officially dedicated as a cathedral. From the Sareiser Joch there are several trails along the ridge such as the Princess Gina Route that traverses various mountains of the border triangle. More than four hundred well marked hiking trails are offered throughout Liechtenstein, plus a hundred and sixty kilometres in the Alps. The Principality is a treasure trove of both landscape and culture with mountains, pastures, castles, fortresses and museums. But Liechtenstein has also become a small, modern state with a vital and indelible focus on finance and industry, a tiny paradise that is also an important economic power.

Museumsmeile Vaduz / Fürstentum Liechtenstein
Gleich sechs grössere Museen befinden sich auf der Museumsmeile in Vaduz im Fürstentum Liechtenstein. Vom historischen Landesmuseum bis hin zum zeitgenössischen Kunstmuseum kann man auf kleinem Raum viel Zeit verbringen.
Vaduz, the capital of Liechtenstein
Vaduz is the capital of a European country and has a population of around 5,000 people - in total there are around 37,000 Liechtensteiners. The country plays in the World Cup and other international tournaments and usually ends up bottom of the league - which is not surprising in the circumstances and all credit to it for playing! The good news about its football is however that we can park our vans at the national stadium car park for CHF0.50 per hour with a maximum charge of CHF4 and at the weekend it is free!
Vaduz probably dates back to around 1322 when it was founded by the Counts of Werdenberg. What is today the princely castle must have been founded around the same time. In the 17th century the Liechtenstein family was seeking a seat in the Imperial diet, the Reichstag. However, since they did not hold any territory that was directly under the Imperial throne, they were unable to meet the primary requirement to qualify. However it managed to acquire what is today the area around Vaduz which gave them the right to sit in the Reichstag and in turn gave birth to the Principality of Liechtenstein. Once that was settled, none of the Princes of Liechtenstein bothered to set foot in their principality for over 120 years.
Today the princely family resides at Vaduz Castle which looks over the town, national stadium and its car park. The castle was formerly a jail and an inn before needing renovation for the princely family. It is out of bounds to visitors, however there is a well marked trail to walk up to see it which offers wonderful views over the town and mountains all around.
The Cathedral of St. Florin, Government House and City Hall are also well-known landmarks. The National Art Gallery as well as the National Museum are located in Vaduz. The art gallery (Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein) is a museum of modern and contemporary art, also showing displays from the private princely Liechtenstein Collection, the main public display of which is in Vienna. The building is an architectural landmark built by the Swiss architects Morger, Degelo and Kerez. It was completed in November 2000 and forms a “black box” of tinted concrete and black basalt stone. The museum collection is also the national art collection of Liechtenstein. The Liechtenstein National Museum is showing a permanent exhibition on the cultural and natural history of Liechtenstein as well as special exhibitions. There are also the Postage Stamp Museum and a Ski Museum.
Liechtenstein City Palace
The Liechtenstein city palace in the inner city of Vienna shines in new splendor after renovation work. It is regarded as Vienna’s first important building of High Baroque.

The Principality's Capital - Vaduz, Liechtenstein
At just 62 square miles and 35,000 people, the Principality of Liechtenstein is one of the smallest countries in the world. It is also one of the richest countries per capita in the world. Finance, skiing and small farms dominate the economy.
Vaduz is the capital of Liechtenstein. It is actually a rather small city, with just 5,100 people. But Vaduz is the cultural heart of the principality and features a number of museums along with government buildings and the Cathedral of St. Florin.

Liechtenstein Travel Guide
Liechtenstein Travel Guide: It's true, Liechtenstein makes a fabulous wine-and-cheese-hour trivia subject -- Did you know it was the sixth smallest country?... It's still governed by an iron-willed monarch who lives in a Gothic castle on a hill... Yes, it really is the world's largest producer of dentures... But if you're visiting this pocket-sized principality solely for the cocktail-party bragging rights, keep the operation covert. This theme-park micronation takes its independence seriously and would shudder at the thought of being considered for novelty value alone. Liechtenstein would rather be remembered for its stunning natural beauty.
The Principality of Liechtenstein was established within the Holy Roman Empire in 1719 and became a sovereign state in 1806. Until the end of World War I, it was closely tied to Austria, but the economic devastation caused by that conflict forced Liechtenstein to conclude a customs and monetary union with Switzerland. Since World War II (in which Liechtenstein remained neutral), the country's low taxes have spurred outstanding economic growth. Shortcomings in banking regulatory oversight have resulted in concerns about the use of the financial institutions for money laundering and tax evasion. However, the days of bringing suitcases of money into banks for deposit without questions asked is over. Liechtensteiners are also very proud of the fact that their nation has never been physically involved in a battle or military confrontation with an enemy state and see their flag as a banner of peace.
Despite its small size and limited natural resources, Liechtenstein has developed into a prosperous, highly industrialized, free-enterprise economy with a vital financial service sector and living standards on a par with the urban areas of its large European neighbors. The Liechtenstein economy is widely diversified with a large number of small businesses. Low business taxes--the maximum tax rate is 20%--and easy incorporation rules have induced a large number of holding or so-called letter box companies to establish nominal offices in Liechtenstein, providing 30% of state revenues.
