Liechtenstein Quick Guide

Liechtenstein holiday Packages provides an easy and affordable way to explore this magnificent region in the Alps. Liechtenstein lies in the south-central mountains of central Austria, at the foot of the Passau Alps. Its name was originally "Liechtensteiner" (Liechtenstein being the German for mountain). Today it is regarded as a separate entity and is one of the most popular tourist destinations on Europe's Alpine region.

Liechtenstein has a population of just three million people, of whom two-thirds are foreigners. This small country is not considered a safe destination for a family holiday because of the high risk of crime and danger from wild animals. Nevertheless, there are a wide variety of interesting tourist attractions and interesting destinations to be explored, including snow-capped Mont Blanc and spectacular alpine scenery. The most popular winter sports in Liechtenstein include skiing and snowboarding.

Switzerland has a strong influence on European art, as can be seen in the Liechtenstein Travel Guide. The majority of the artists working in Switzerland are French, and Liechtenstein has been a leading artist in Europe since 1700. Two of the most famous pieces of art in Liechtenstein are the Blue Marble, and the Blue Mirror. The Blue Marble is an enormous marble statue of Switzerland itself, created in the shape of a man and woman. It was originally created as a counterweight to the massive Blue Grotto in Zurich, built to protect the city from flooding. The Swiss built the largest and most difficult to climb mountain in Europe, so that the city of Zurich could defend itself against a possible attack by marauding French troops.

Another fascinating section of the Liechtenstein Travel Guide is the exciting region surrounding Zurich. Liechtenstein's regional artwork includes beautiful mountain scenes, beautiful lakes, stunning castles, and unique churches and cathedrals. Liechtenstein has the only glass house dome in the world, and the incredible Chillon Castle is located nearby. A Liechtenstein travel guide will show you how beautiful Lake Geneva is, which has an astounding 19th century view. The most popular tourist destination outside of Switzerland is the popular Rhinocolo Island, and a guided trip to the island can also provide wonderful opportunities for photography, including the incredible lighthouse and tower.
