[FL] Liechtenstein Highways

Its about time for a new country thread in Europe to start the new year (suprised this large -er important central European country has been forgotten!).

Liechtenstein is an easy country to drive through, the distances are small and the traffic light. The scenery is great with the backdrop of the Alps. Theres basically one road through the country called Landstrasse, though it may have other names, and a side road to Malbun. Didnt seem to be any road numbers.

This image is at Vorarlberger Strasse in Schaanwald, heading west from the Austria border.

Frontier post between Austria and Leichtenstein: actually its really the Swiss border post and Swiss entry is conducted here the same way as elsewhere, i.e. Leichtenstein and Switzerland have a common border fomalities.

A13 / E43

Liechtenstein does have an autobahn that runs the length of the country. But just like Liechtenstein has money from people outside, it has a motorway from outside - Switzerland. Its on the west bank of the Rhein, so it saves Liechtenstein both the space to build it (land is precious in Liechtenstein) and the money. The A13 is useful from getting from the north to the south of the country, and to everywhere else.

Approach to the A3 A13 interchange (drei-eck) number 11


Ramp from the A13 toward the north


The A13 running on the west bank of the Rhein with Liechtenstein on the east side


A13 Interchange 10 to Balzers, northbound

A13 Interchange 9 to Vaduz, southbound

I dont think so, its hard enough to get a CH stamp at the border with Austria. Theres no border posts between Liechtenstein and Switzerland.

There is a rail line in the north of the country from Buchs to Feldkirch through Schaan.

They are quite common in Switzerland (and they look identical to those of Liechtenstein)

The A13 is probably the only motorway in the world that actually has a lot of FL plates. You can recognize them easily, because they are the last black plates with white letters still around in Europe.
