Although a small country, Liechtenstein has an impressive offer for tourists: from beautiful Alpine scenery to museums, shopping, and dining. Tourism is one of the main industries in the country, along with services, particularly banking and finance. 

Vaduz is the capital of Liechtenstein and one of the main destinations for tourists. Naturally, there are numerous accommodation options in this town, however, investors who want to open a hotel or hostel in Liechtenstein can also look towards the mountain and valley regions. 

Hotels in Liechtenstein offer accommodation options both to tourists who want to explore the mountain and valley landscape but also to businesspeople who are in the country for corporate purposes. Many hotels and hostels will also provide restaurant or café services and these types of activities require additional special permits and licenses.
