    Thanks for sharing this one because I have never been to Liechtenstein! And kudos to you for exploring more than just Vaduz. This looks like a beautiful area and despite the cost, I would love to check it out some day. It’s a bit different than the rest of Europe so would love to explore the culture and history there.

      Yeah, I got a little bit of the history from the brochures, but would be interested in reading more. Like just how this little slice of the mountains didn’t just get swallowed by one of its neighbors.

    The Schloss in Feldkirch has a very interesting (to me anyway) museum, complete with some almost comically large vintage firearms (probably too old to be rifled) – in 2005 I took a picture of one, and realized there was no sense of scale in that shot. Having nobody with me, I put my hat next to it and took a picture… and thus was born my “hat for scale” series of pictures in Europe.
    I was driving on my last visit, so I managed to get confused following the signs for Vaduz… first it’s pointing ahead… then there are no signs for Vaduz… then there is a sign pointing back the way I came… that is when I realized the size of the country (despite having visited 20 years before).

      Hi Charles, yeah we aren’t museum people so just walked up to the castle to see it itself. The “hat for scale” pictures sound interesting.

      Yeah Vaduz is smaller than Blacksburg by all measures. It is cool to see though.
