Liechtenstein is more like a big ski run than a regular European country. Visitors can look for differences between Liechtenstein and Switzerland, but there aren't many. The village of Vaduz contains most points of interest in Liechtenstein - such as the State Art Collection, Postage Stamp Museum, and Ski Museum. Liechtenstein's premier ski resort Malbun nestles amid the mountains in the country's southeast. Triesenberg, which has a lovely onion-domed church and museum devoted to the Walser, is on a terrace above Vaduz and commands excellent views over Rhine Valley. The town of Appenzell has an old-fashioned air, with traditional old houses, painted façades and lush surrounding countryside. Feldkirch is the gateway to Liechtenstein from the Austrian side of the border, and the town still retains some medieval buildings - such as the 12th-century Schattenburg Castle. The mountains are fine for skiing, hiking, and ski moutaineering.
