Liechtenstein

Switzerland is the most prosperous country in the world. Neighboring Liechtenstein is much like it. Our tour of the area outside Zurich, known as Heidi Land, took us through beautiful mountainous regions. This area inspired the writing of the book Heidi, which, after the Bible, is the most translated book in the world. We hiked along mountain paths that took us by orchards laden with apples and pears, vineyards now turned gold and red in the autumn air, cattle munching grass and small hay-filled barns. Above us loomed hills covered with pine and cedar trees and above the hills loomed snowcapped peaks. It was as if we had stepped 50 years back in time.

The Principality of Liechtenstein is a mix of old world and modern times. The castle of the ruling family is on the hillside above the small capitol city of Vaduz, which is sparkling clean and modern. High in the Alps, Liechtenstein has the highest per capita gross domestic production in the world. Our day was refreshing and peaceful as we traversed rural and village Alpine territory. WEG
