About this Vaduz Tour
Tucked snugly between Switzerland and Austria, the pocket-sized principality of Liechtenstein holds some big surprises. Although one of Europe's smallest nations, it's one of the wealthiest, thanks to its role as a commercial and international banking center. In fact, the country enjoys one of the world's highest standards of living. And, wow, does it have great art.
As you stroll this stylish town, you'll be thrilled by works from world-famous masters. Highlights include the sensuous and monumental "Reclining Woman" by Fernando Botero, Henry Moore's evocative "Figure in a Shelter," and "Two Light Prisms," an ever-changing glass sculpture by Heinz Mack. City streets or sculpture garden? You decide.
The Museum of Fine Arts is a piece of art in itself. The sleek and shiny black cube of cast concrete and basalt rock is a treasure box for art lovers, filled with famous modernist artists like Gustave Courbet, Georges Seurat, and Marcel Duchamp. If you're a fan of innovative architecture, your eyes will also pop at the dramatic Hilti Art Foundation building and the postmodern Centrum Bank building.
Liechtenstein's relationship with art is fascinating. Over centuries, its Princely Family amassed one of the world's leading collections (much of it now in Vienna). But as the country endured financial hardship after World War II, the family sold some of these riches. (Leonardo daVinci's "Ginevra de' Benci" went to Washington's National Gallery in 1967 for $5 million, then a record for a painting.) Today, its affluence assured, this tiny country treats you to some of the most amazing street art on the planet.
The world's largest royal garden party?
Sitting high atop the town, Vaduz Castle has belonged to the Princely Family of Liechtenstein since 1712. The castle isn't open to the public because it's still the private home of reigning Prince Hans-Adam II and his family. But each year on August 15, the national holiday, visitors are welcome. All of Liechtenstein's residents (more than 35,000) are invited to celebrate, with beer flowing freely in the castle garden.
Please make your way to the Bus terminal behind the Town Hall. Please look for our GoBe Representative with the displayed logo sign.
