This is actually Buchs. This is a medium-sized town in Switzerland. I got the train from Grusch the town I was staying to get into Liechtenstein. There is also a railway into Liechtenstein that goes from a different line from Switzerland or Austria. It’s on a few kilometres away, so I walked in.
I was excited about doing my final (for now) little European country, as it was my goal to visit as many of these (in fact I’ve been to Liechtenstein, Andorra and Luxembourg) before Brexit happens, as I wanted to compare all of the non-EU countries to the EU nations.
This is the border. There are flags of the two countries on this bridge over the river. It wasn’t very windy, and the flags not really visible on the other photo I had. This one you can see this brass plaque as well.
The other side of the bridge and past the post office depot is the very pleasant town of Schaan, which is the second largest town here. Vaduz being the capital.
This country very closely resembles Switzerland from terrain and cultural perspective. If you get the bus, there’s a place to put your skis.
