Border crossing

Liechtenstein and Switzerland are separated from each other by river Rhein. For sure there was always the need to cross the river and in the beginning ferry boats were the vehicle of choice. In 1867 first bridges were created, for example between Buchs (Switzerland) and Schaan (Liechtenstein); three years later the connection between Vaduz and Sevelen was created for the very first time. As a pedestrian and cyclist you can use it still today – the last preserved wooden bridge crossing the Rhein.

The Alte Rheinbrücke is 135 meters long, five meters wide and protected by a wooden roof. In the middle the border between the two countries is clearly marked. Fortunately there is no passport needed to cross the bridge. 😉
