The climate of Liechtenstein
The microstate of Liechtenstein is clenched between the Alpine countries of Austria and Switzerland. The country is particularly known for its favourable tax legislation. The meteorological climate, the weather, is between a continental and a moderate maritime climate. There is sufficient influence from the sea to prevent the temperature in the winter months from dropping too much and in the summer months the temperature almost always (amply) remains below the thirty degree limit due to the combination of mountains and the vicinity of (within a few hundred kilometers) of the Mediterranean. If there is a chinook the temperature may rise rather quickly to summery values.


In the winter months the most precipitation falls in the form of snow. Who wants to practice winter sports is served in one ski-region: Malbun. Skiing in Malbun is like it used to be, so without the nightmare of packet journeys, high apartment blocks and long rows at the ski-lifts. The resort is small, with only a handful of hotels among the private chalets and houses. Skiing is done at a healthy altitude of 1600 metres so that the snow generally stays reasonably good. Even in the warm spring of 2007 the cool of the night and the work of the lift-employees made the ski-runs sparkle like new in the morning sun. In a straight line Malbun is rather close to the capital of Vaduz (although you could say that of all the distances in Liechtenstein!). The way up to the resort however can be intimidating to inexperienced drivers, with steep slopes and sharp bends. Who is reluctant to do that can take a taxi or the bus to the peaks of Malbun.


Climate figures
The figures below are based on registered weather data of more than one year and are an average for Liechtenstein: lower temperatures and more chance of wintry weather apply to the higher situated areas; Valduz is slightly warmer.

More climate information
Climate figures come in handy but do not offer an overall picture of the climate and the possible weather conditions within a particular period. You cannot often find in figures how big the chance is of wintry weather, (extreme) heat or hurricanes. Therefore we monthly offer useful extra climate information:
