Many people make the mistake and pass through Feldkirch on their way to Liechtenstein or Innsbruck without even exploring its wonderful charm. Don't make this mistake!
Feldkirch lies in the Rhein Valley bordering Liechtenstein to the south and Switzerland to the west. From Germany and Bavaria you will take the Rheintal Autobahn and cross at Lindau and continue southward. From Liechtenstein you simply head north. From Switzerland you have to cross east over the Rhein. From Tyrol and Innsbruck you will have to pass through the Arlberg Tunnel (toll) an incredibly scenic drive that takes you through the stunning Walgau Valley. The Arlberg Pass offers a free alternative but is only open in the warm weather months. The closest international airports are in Zurich, Innsbruck and Munich.
The old town centre is small, and easy to walk around. Most of the street as pedestrianised. There is lots of parking just outside the centre.
Liechtenstein, one of the smallest countries in the world, is only a few kilometres away.
