There are major differences in temperatures and the amount of precipitation between the Rhine Valley and the mountainous part of Liechtenstein. In the higher altitudes there is almost twice as much precipitation. The winters are of course also colder there. Due to the foehn, the climate in Liechtenstein can be described as mild overall. The summers are not too hot and the winters are not too cold.
The ideas of what is meant by a particularly favorable travel climate depend on a number of factors. Pure cultural travelers certainly see the climate differently than people who, for example, want to spend a hiking or winter sports holiday in Liechtenstein. The state of health or age can also play an important role.

The new Landtag of the state in Vaduz was planned by the architectural office of Prof. Hansjörg Göritz. It has been in the center of the capital since 2008. The building was built entirely from light clinker brick with a very steep roof.
The building is deliberately reminiscent of a tent or a kind of ancient hut. The southern part of the building is directly connected to the State Museum. the architect called it the “High House” as opposed to the “Big House” – the government building. There is a larger space between the parliament and the seat of government.
The originally medieval building from the 12th century was expanded in the 16th and 17th centuries and is now the residence of the royal family.
