Fusion of modern and traditional culture
With its museums, postage stamp collections, summer festivals and fine dining, it is no wonder that Liechtenstein is a popular destination for visitors wishing to experience the local culture on holiday. Highlights during the summer months include the National Day, LiGiTa guitar festival, Liechtenstein Festival and open-air film festival. In the pedestrianised area in the centre of Vaduz just a stone’s throw from the picturesque vineyards and impressive Vaduz Castle many museums, galleries and restaurants invite guests to embark on a cultural and culinary journey of discovery. Liechtenstein’s ten other municipalities are also home to thriving art, music and theatre scenes.
Kunstmuseum. The Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein (Liechtenstein Art Museum) is the state museum of modern and contemporary art in Vaduz. The building by the Swiss architects Meinrad Morger, Heinrich Degelo and Christian Kerez was completed in November 2000. The museum collection of international modern and contemporary art is also the national art collection of the Principality of Liechtenstein.
