Liechtenstein

Clean mountain air and peaceful surroundings make camping in Liechtenstein a true pleasure. Villages cluster amid forested slopes and green pastures, and towering over the capital of Vaduz, the country’s symbolic castle keeps watching over the lands. Vaduz houses a world-famous art collection, including works by Rembrandt, and the nearby wine-producing village of Triesenberg has beautiful panoramic views over the Rhine valley.

Winter visitors will enjoy Malbun, the country’s premier winter sports location, with a range of activities, including ice skating and a 1000m toboggan run. In summer, well-documented hiking and cycling trails allow you to explore the glorious mountain scenery.

Camping options in Liechtenstein

Camping options are limited, but as the country is the fourth smallest in Europe at only 25km in length, that's not much of a surprise. The best option is Camping Mittagspitze in the South of the country, between Triesenberg and Balzers. Alternatively, there is a small 12-pitch "stellplatz" for campervanners and motorhomers in Malbun.

Driving in Liechtenstein

Road conditions and safety standards are excellent, as is the extensive public transport network. There are no toll roads in the country, but if you are using motorways in neighbouring Austria or Switzerland, you should display an appropriate vignette sticker or you’ll face a large on-the-spot fine. 

When driving in the mountains, the downhill driver is expected to back-up if there is no sufficient passing room unless there is room nearer to you. Trucks and buses have priority over cars on mountain passes. During winter, road users must use snow chains and snow tires where appropriate.


Dashcams Considering dashcams are prohibited in neighbouring Austria and Switzerland, we would recommend removing them while visiting Liechtenstein.

Speed Camera Detectors To be on the safe side, we'd recommend turning this feature off while visiting Liechtenstein.

Low Emission Zones There are no LEZs in place.
