Vaduz is the capital of the Principality of Liechtenstein and the country’s second largest city.
Vaduz is claimed to be mentioned in 12th century manuscripts as Farduzes. It is however more commonly believed to have been founded in the 13th century by the Counts of Werdenberg.
Vaduz is home to the Prince’s castle and related museums. It may be a capital city but it is not likely to interest a visitor for any length of time. A new art museum, the post office and stamp museum, some private, small art galleries and the ski museum pretty much sum up the attractions. There are a number of restaurants offering Liechtensteinian, Swiss and Austrian cuisine at reasonable prices. The main shops in Vaduz sell tourist trinkets. There are flags, t-shirts, and of course, cuckoo clocks.
Vaduz has cold winters with frequent snow or rain and cool to moderately warm, cloudy, humid summers.
Vaduz is one of the very few capital cities in the world without an airport or railway station. Public transportation is taxi or rental car.
Vadus population is 5,109 (2005).
+423 is the international calling code for Liechtenstein, all points
