Architecture of Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein Architecture - Vaduz Cathedral

As a small country, the architectural sights in Liechtenstein are limited, but those few that do exist are impressive. Nearly limited to the capital city of Vaduz, the history spans from the Romanesque times to today, but most of the styles in between are less noticeable.

Liechtenstein Architecture - Gutenberg Castle

The most recognizable and dominating building in the country is the Vaduz Castle, which is the home to the royal family. This primarily Romanesque castle sits above the city with a striking mountain backdrop. Also in the capital is the Vaduz Cathedral (1874), which was built in the neo-Gothic style and again is a dominant feature of the city's skyline. Most of the architecture in the capital though is modern architecture, including the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein (2000), which is difficult to miss.
