Have you heard of Liechtenstein? If not, that's probably because it's one of the smallest countries in the world. But Liechtenstein honeymoons have more to offer couples than most realize. This micro-country is a remarkable place in many ways...and might just be to the key to unlocking your dream honeymoon in Europe!
Nestled between Switzerland and Austira, Liechtenstein is only about 62 square miles. For perspective, compare that to the small U.S. state of Rhode Island, which is 1,214 square miles...almost twenty times the size! So what makes a Liechtenstein honeymoon so special?
For one, it's a little slice of heaven on earth for culture and trivia buffs. Despite its tiny size, it is the world's foremost manufacturer of false teeth! But the real draw here for couples are the charming little cities, stunning mountains, and delightful sightseeing.
Here are our favorite things about Liechtenstein:
Liechtenstein honeymoons aren't just quiet because the country is so small and quaint. There's actually a strong culture of admiration for the peace and quiet here. During the national 1.5-hour lunch break that begins at noon, and after 10 p.m., loud activities like construction projects and loud parties are discouraged, ensuring quiet time for everyone.
Warm, Friendly Hospitality
To give you an idea of how friendly and down-to-earth the people of Liechtenstein are, picture this: Every year, you get a letter from the Crown Prince inviting you to enjoy refreshments and beer in the gardens of the ancestral royal castle. That's exactly what happens for residents of Liechtenstein each year! Honeymooners may not get the invite, but you can stroll along a romantic pathway to the castle and look out over the hills for incredible views. You aren't allowed inside, but the outdoor scenery is dreamy beyond description.
Liechtenstein is extremely mountainous, making for stunning vistas of the Alps even when you're in the middle of one of its cities. And proximity to mountains means amazing hiking, skiing, and other outdoor adventures.
Amazing Mountain Chalets
With all those beautiful mountains, Liechtenstein is also home to uber-romantic, luxurious mountain chalets where you can enjoy the fun and beauty of the Alps in style.
Even if you don't opt for a full honeymoon here, it's an easy stop-over during a honeymoon in neighboring Switzerland or Austria. This makes it the perfect place to stop off for a while at the beginning or end of your trip, like a mini-moon within your honeymoon. Plus, since it's so small, you can see lots of sights in a short period of time.
You Can Drink the Prince's Wine
Visit the Wine Cellars of the Prince of Liechtenstein to tour the forgeous vineyards, learn how wines are made from vine to bottle, and of course, taste delicious wines from the Prince's cellar. Then buy a bottle and take it home for a royal treat on your one-year anniversary!
Stop in Liechtenstein on Your Honeymoon in Europe
With its two largest cities populated by fewer than 6,000 people each, the little country of Liechtenstein is the perfect place to stop for a few days on your Europe honeymoon. Its welcoming vibe, charming towns, mountain chalets, and stunning beauty make it well worth your while. Even compared to quaint Switzerland next door, Liechtenstein is so quiet that you'll feel like the only honeymooners in the entire country. And it's so small, you may very well be!
