Vaduz, Liechtenstein, Zurich
Update 13.08.2010

One important notice re latest departure!

The latest public transport connection from Vaduz is at 21.50, just before the Fireworks :(

> Thus, for those who plan to stay for the fireworks, I would recommend to come by car to Liechtenstein!
We can anyway meet in Sargans at the railway station at 08.30, and then go together to Vaduz. There will be possibility to park your car close to Vaduz.

> For those who plan to use public transportation, you need to buy tickets only to Sargans, as all Liechtestien busses are for free on Aug, 15.

"Liechtenstein celebrates its National Day on August 15th. A colorful program for the people of Liechtenstein will follow the official state ceremony. The traditional fireworks display from Vaduz Castle will conclude the official celebration."

This is a great opportunity to visit Liechtenstein and the Castle and... to talk to the roal family. You do not need to be a Liechtensteiner! Just a happy and open person!
There is no official information about the celebrations yet. Usually in the morning there is an apero and a morning service in the castle. Then you can enjoy festive activities in the center of Vaduz.

How to get there:
