Liechtenstein 4. Small country topography

The cross at the bottom is Grusch where I stayed a couple of nights.   On the top right is Feldkirch which looked nice but was shut until the spring.

I messed around with Google maps to get some 3D maps with terrian.

Just the orange part is actual Liechtenstein.

When I look sideways at this place with Switzerland behind me, the river is the whole border of the bottom curved edge.   About half of the country isn’t actually habitable as its mountainous, with the exception of a few streets that sit on a shelf.
