From Zurich I went over to the tiny country of Liechtenstein. The drive was filled with breathtaking nature including the amazing Swiss Alps. Founded in 1342 as the Country of Vaduz, this tiny state became Liechtenstein in 1719 and is located where Germany, Austria, and Switzerland converge. Upon entering the country, you can check to see if the flag is raised on the Vaduz Castle, if so then you know that the prince is in town. Once there, I walked through a large garden filled with ancient varieties of scented French and English roses and explored the old castle which overlooks the entire small country. I found a rustic eatery in the winter wonderland and had the daily special: roasted venison with cranberries, house-made herb spaetzli accompanied by fresh seasonal vegetables.
Lunch in Lichtenstein – a meal to remember!
