Liechtenstein Shopping

It would seem that if the country does not limit the import and export of currency, which can be exchanged everywhere, if credit cards and tourist checks are accepted in addition to cash, then a likely good shopping is only a matter of time, but not in Liechtenstein .

Prices in the shops of Liechtenstein

Shopping as a mass phenomenon in the principality is completely absent, and the reason is very high prices. Liechtenstein ranks 6th in the world in terms of income, which could not but affect the value of goods and services within the country. Thus, today Liechtenstein is the most expensive country in Europe.

Another point, the peak of the summer tourist season is from May to September. And during this period price tags are expected and unjustifiably growing.

What can I buy?

In general, tourists buy for themselves or their relatives small souvenirs : a bottle of local wine or a cheese head, a rare postage stamp, if you can buy a simple piece of memorabilia such as a bell, a magnet in the form of an alpine cow or a beautiful trinket.

Opening hours of shops in Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein is not full of shopping centers and bright signs about sales. Most of the shops are open from 8:30 to 18:30, the largest - to 10:00 pm. On Saturday, the abbreviated working day until 16:00, and Sunday is generally considered a day off. And we have not yet considered the classic lunch break from 12:00 to 14:00.
