LIECHTENSTEIN - Vaduz | train

LIECHTENSTEIN - Vaduz | train

Postby qwertymz » 07 Aug 2010 - 14:42

The following is some of the information I found on how to get to Liechtenstein, which is the sixth smallest micro-nation in the world:

If you're taking the night train from Zurich to Vienna (or the other way round), you should eventually come across a stop called SARGANS. If you want to go to Liechtenstein, get out!

You now have two options:
1) Just next to the train station you'll find the bus station, with signs for Vaduz (the capital city of Liechtenstein). This will take half an hour, and will only set you back a couple of francs. If you don't plan on staying long, you can leave your luggage in the lockers at SARGANS train station.

2) From SARGANS, get a train to BUCHS, then a train to SCHAAN-VADUZ station, in Liechtenstein. Some of the trains available are free for IR users, so choose with care!

For those of you who love collecting stamps on their passports, the Tourist Information Office in Vaduz will stamp your passport with the Liechtenstein border pass for €3 - this is especially great because there are NO border checks in Liechtenstein -- this is actually the only place you can get this stamp in the world.

Hope this helps.

LIECHTENSTEIN - Vaduz | train

Postby flow » 11 Nov 2010 - 01:33

Hi!

Just to add:

All trains Austria - Switzerland (except the Munich - Zurich EC services which use another route) stop in Feldkirch (last stop in Austria) and Buchs SG (first stop in Switzerland). Between both towns a service of regional stops operate which call at Schaan-Vaduz. All those trains are free with InterRail. From Schaan-Vaduz it is a little walk in the city centre of Vaduz, the capital of Liechtenstein.

The other option to get there are the mentioned buses. These operate on the following routes: Line 12: Buchs SG - Vaduz - Sargans Line 14: Feldkirch - Vaduz

Generally, opting for the bus is a better idea, since there are only a few trains calling at Schaan-Vaduz (I believe the number to be around 5 or 6 per day...a level clearly inferior to that of most services in the neighbouring countries). Improvement is under way (the so-called "S-Bahn FL.A.CH" project), but since that requires quite extensive upgrading of the railway line, it will only swing into force around 2015 or so.

There are actually 10 railway services per direction on weekdays.

You are right, 10 connections indeed... the problem is that they are quite clustered: from Buchs to Feldkirch, you have three trains in the morning, the last one departing from Buchs at 08:17, then one at 12:32, and then regular services resume in the afternoon rush hour (first departure at 16:32). So, basically, during the eight hours between 08:17 and 16:32 there's one train in that direction...the other direction shows the same pattern.
