Liechtenstein 5. Road up to the castle

This monument on the side of the road to go up the hill towards the castle shows “Franz I” this is the Prince.  Franz de Paula Maria Karl August (28/8/1853–25/7/1938), was the Prince of Liechtenstein between 1929 and 1938.

The other side of the hill going up the road to the castle you can see all of Vaduz, and well, all of the middle of the country, the river in the distance is the border with Switzerland.

This area appears to have quite a lot of rules, but actually, I saw a Porsche and then a high-end Mercedes driving very fast up the zigzag road.    Notice the ‘no drones’ sign.
