Climate, Average Temperatures and Precipitation

  • Best time: summer, from June to early September, although they are the wettest months. Winter for those who practice winter sports
  • Period to avoid: winter is very cold, rainy and with frequent snowfalls. Not recommended unless you are looking for tourism and winter sports

Liechtenstein enjoys a continental climate, particularly rainy even during the summer. Despite the rainfall, the summers are quite hot, while during the winter season Vaduz and the principality are "victims" of cold temperatures that hover around zero and which can drop further at night.

When to go to Liechtenstein: the cheapest period

Vaduz and the Principality of Liechtenstein are not to be considered an economic destination. From restaurants to shops, the cost of living in Vaduz is much higher than in Italy, but that doesn't mean staying in the luxurious city is impossible.

The advice is to avoid the month of December (the Christmas period is full of events, therefore more expensive), preferring rather the spring and autumn months, thanks to the pleasant temperatures and the possibility to move even on foot in the midst of nature and in the city center. Book in advance.

Vaduz and Liechtenstein in the spring

The spring season, with its slight but steady rising temperatures, are ideal for admiring the "flourishing", literally speaking, of the principality. Take advantage of the March / May quarter to visit some of the most important attractions of the principality's capital, such as the Liechtenstein State Museum and the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein.

For lovers of walking, reach the fairytale Vaduz Castle: being the official residence of the royal family, it is unfortunately not open to the public, but its external beauty and the surrounding nature deserve to be admired.

Vaduz and Liechtenstein in the Summer

The rainy but hot summer of the principality comes alive mainly thanks to food and wine events, which also take place in the localities adjacent to the capital located on the banks of the Lake Constance. The lakes of Liechtenstein allow summer sports to take place, but there are also events in the city center: the most important takes place around the August th period, and is remembered as the only princely week in the world. During this amazing week you can take part in alpine routes, wine tastings and you can "peek" during the preparations for the important event.

Vaduz and Liechtenstein in Autumn

The leaves in free fall, the vineyards in full swing, the gentle breeze coming from the Rhine color the autumn of Liechtenstein and its capital, characterized by the teeming of wine and gastronomic festivals, thanks to the production of high quality food raw materials, such as honey, pumpkin and apple. Give in, then, to the pleasures of the throat, perhaps after having dedicated a good part of your time to visit some of the most evocative attractions of the principality's capital: the characteristic Museum of Stamps and Stamps, the FIS Ski Museum, the Neo-Gothic Cathedral of San Florino .

Vaduz and Liechtenstein in Winter

The cold winter of little Vaduz is animated by the presence of an ice skating rink that will keep the inhabitants and tourists company until the first days of January.
Vaduz on Ice is now an institution in the capital of the principality, as is the colorful one Christmas market which attracts an increasing number of tourists from all over Europe. The whitewashed mountains frame the beautiful town of Liechtenstein, mistakenly considered a bank headquarters and nothing more. Nothing more wrong: nature and monuments animate Vaduz and the principality in perfect balance.
