The Principality of Liechtenstein offers a wide variety of leisure activities for every taste. The country’s geographic location and topography provides numerous opportunities to relax in nature. A plethora of cultural activities, many clubs and associations as well as a modern infrastructure make Liechtenstein a popular place for outdoor and leisure pursuits.
Located in the heart of the Alps, Liechtenstein offers a diverse range of leisure activities both in summer and in winter.
