A Couple of Hours in Liechtenstein--Recommend Gasthaus zum Hirschen in Mauren

by yostwl »

On our Alpine trip, we decided to cross into Liechtenstein after driving the Silvretta High Alpine road on our way to Bregenz.  We basically just wanted to get the Liechtenstein stamp in our passports and be able to say we'd been there.  After crossing the border, we decided to have a late lunch while there.

We dined at Gasthaus zum Hirschen in Mauren.  It was a pleasant place (we ate outside) with friendly and efficient service. I recommend it if you're ever in the area.

 

We did have to ask the border officer to stamp our passports as, at first, he just waved us through when we showed them to him.

Bill, did you lose sleep over where to post this, since Frommers has no Liechtenstein section? And since Lux. is another tiny state with a name starting in L, you picked Lux.? I'll ask Pauline to insert a Liechtenstein section, it deserves it, doesn't it?

It's the closest I could come to a small country more or less on the same north/south line.

Your motivation for the visit (passport stamp) mirrors mine. We passed through there in 1960 on the way back to Heidelberg from a trip to Italy. We found no border post and continued on to lunch in Vaduz.

My uncle struck up a conversation with the waiter, who spoke English, and was kind enough to point out that the part-time foreign minister ate lunch daily in a restaurant three doors away, and near his office. Accompanied by my father (and over my mother's gasps) I went to "present my credentials." We found him finishing his lunch, he laughed, and walked with us back to his office, where he stamped my passport with an official (but not border) stamp.

Later that day, we stopped at Rorshach, Switzerland, on the Bodensee, so I could be photographed next to a puddle that stood in for a "Rorschach blot."
