Postcrossing Meeting in Vaduz 10-09-2011

Liechtenstein is a very small country, but also a great place for a meeting! The 4th Swiss meeting was in Vaduz, Liechtenstein capital. The postcard was sent by Alex.

"Vaduz Castle (German Schloss Vaduz) is the palace and official residence of the Prince of Liechtenstein. The castle gave its name to the town of Vaduz, the capital of Liechtenstein, which it overlooks from an adjacent hilltop." In: Wikipedia

"Visible from far and wide yet so close you could almost touch it, the emblem of Liechtenstein towers over Vaduz on a rock terrace which can be reached along a romantic footpath.
The castle was first built some 700 years ago. Since 1712 it has been in the possession of the Prince of Liechtenstein. Furthermore, since 1938 it has been the residence of the prince’s family, so it is not open to the public. The 12th century keep and the structures on the east side are the oldest parts of the castle." In: Tourismus
