Getting to Liechtenstein from Zurich

Just to the east of Switzerland lies the country of Liechtenstein. This small country has a population of just under 40,000 citizens and is one of the world’s richest countries per capita!

On a recent trip to Switzerland, my family and I decided to take a trip to Liechtenstein’s – Vaduz, but honestly speaking, there weren’t many sites that provided detailed information on the country and on how to get there. Hence, here’s a quick guide on the most straight-forward way on getting there by public transport and some tips!

  1. From Zurich Main Station, hop on the train that is in the direction of Chur. Train runs pretty regularly in hourly intervals and the journey is just under an hour.
  2. Get off at the second stop – Sargans
  3. Walk towards bus stop – Sargans, Bahnhof, Stand B
  4. Take bus 12E in the direction of Vaduz – Post. This bus ride brings you across the border from Switzerland to Liechtenstein. This friendly border is peppered with some flags on each side that is seemingly not heavily guarded. 
  5. Get off at the terminal station
From Sargans to Vaduz

Liechtenstein is a very quiet country, and the directions to Vaduz provided above brings you to the ‘touristy-centre’ of the capital. Here, you can drop by the Centro de información turística de Liechtenstein, or essentially, the Tourist Information stop where you can request for a tourist map that plots the various attractions in Vaduz. 

More information to come on the various attractions I visited during the trip soon!
