Villages & Communities of Fürstentum Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein is still split along the old 'country' lines of the upper and lower counties (Oberland and Unterland). The lower or Unterland is smaller and is centred around the Eschnerberg, a hill in the middle of the Rhine floodplain.


Schellenberg was the name of the old county, and the village of Schellenberg still sits in the middle of the Eschnerberg, although the 'capital' of the Unterland is Eschen.

The upper or Oberland is the larger and therefore more dominant area, containing its original capital, Vaduz, which is still the country's capital. Most of the Oberland is mountainous, with the country's ski resort, Malbun, at the middle of the Alpine base of the country. Vaduz is now normally accounted for separately.
