A map of Liechtenstein The tiny Alpine state of Liechtenstein lies in the Rhine Valley, on the border between Switzerland and Austria. The western part is a region of rolling, green farmland. Farmers here grow cereal crops and raise dairy cattle. In the east, the land climbs steeply to the mighty peaks of the Alps. Liechtenstein is a major centre of banking and finance and has become an extremely wealthy country—one of the richest places in Europe. Its people speak German. Liechtenstein’s bigger neighbour, Switzerland, looks after its foreign policy. Liechtenstein also shares Switzerland’s currency (Swiss franc), postal and telephone services.
