With a history and monarchy as storybook as its melodious mountain scenery speckled with tiled-roof stone castle and wintery snow scenes. Rich old Liechtenstein packs a mighty punch for its tiny size. With a population of 37,000, this tiny, wealthy nation landlocked between Austria and Switzerland can be ‘done’ in a day or 3 at most. A 25km stroll takes you from the country’s most northern to southernly tip.
