The railway is of international importance, since it links Liechtenstein with Switzerland and Austria. All trains run in strict accordance with the timetable. The cost of tickets depends on the time of the trip, the type of wagon and additional services. Due to the small size of the principality and the specific topography, air traffic is not developed at all. It is impossible to get to the country by air transportation; there is not even a single airport or runway here. The nearest airport is situated in Zurich, from which you can get to the Swiss border towns and from there by bus to Liechtenstein. Also, to get to the Principality, tourists often use the airport of St. Gallen-Altenrhein, which is located in Switzerland.
You have the opportunity to rent a car if you so desire. It is worth pointing out that right-hand driving is what operates on the territory of Liechtenstein. Furthermore, there are no toll roads. In residential areas, it is allowed to develop a speed of up to 50 km/h, and beyond them, up to 80 km/h. In order to rent a car, you need to have an international driver’s license with you, as well as a credit card that will be used as collateral. Much attention is paid to safety in the country, hence the driver and all passengers must have their seatbelts fastened, and children under the age of 12 must be fixed with the help of special safety systems. During the trip, it is necessary to constantly keep your headlights on the dipped beam, since the roads in the Principality very often turn into tunnels.

If you intend to employ the services of public transportation quite often, it will be much more profitable for you to purchase what is called an unlimited monthly card. This card will operate for 7 days and costs about 12 Swiss francs. There is the opportunity to purchase such a travel card for a month or for a longer period.
