“Not worth”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Ride lasts for nearly 30 - 35 minutes. The so called train looks attractive from outside. However, the same is not comfortable inside. Bench like closely packed parallel seats welcome you inside. Not comfortable sitting position. From inside, outside views are available for persons occupying edge of bench seats. others have to struggle. No photography possible from inside for the same reason.
When we enquired at counter, the lady there said train is about to come, but cannot guarantee tickets, as a group was waiting for the train. Luckily or otherwise, 10 tickets were vacant subsequently. She charged us (2 adults & 2 children) 31 swiss francs. Think family rate is still less as per others opinion, but this was the rate taken.
Driver enquired about language option we would prefer. As german tourists were majority in the train, it was alternate german & english language all the way. To our dissappointment, german people would start discussing just after german commentary was over, limiting our audition.
The so called train passes along narrow roads (correctly fitting the width of this vehicle). City is clean, small and because population is less, not many people or vehicles on road. Only photostop was near a so called vineyard. Not many things for photography there. All of us were thinking that there would be photostop for castle at a good place. It never happened. With only one photostop, and limited view from train, was wondering what is the purpose of this ride.
Train passed through so called city centre also, where modern buildings, a chapel, shops and postoffice were seen. Train took a U turn here without stopping. We wished we were given time here, however again the sorry state of affairs. No getting down.
By 30 minutes back at starting point and bye to vaduz & leichenstein.
Would have been better with walking and exploration on our own. Dont recommend this ride at all. No photostops at attractions, too cramped seating arrangement and high cost for a ride of 30 minutes.
Compared to other country tours, this is the worst we have come across.

“Fun times”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

We stopped in Vaduz during a car tour of the region. The city bus tour looked fun so we hopped on. The bus driver was friendly and offered the tour in several different languages. Our tour had English, German and Russian speakers so we heard the tour in all 3 languages. The best part of the tour? A tractor could not make a corner on a one lane road the train was driving on. The train driver had to give the tractor driver advice on what to do... Truly a funny moment.

“Good way to visit Vaduz quickly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Liechtenstein is small and we needed to see as much as we could within a short time because we were only there for 2 days. So we decided to see what we could of Vaduz via the little train ride. I dont remember the ticket cost but that was not so cheap and when we went Inside the train, we were surprised that anyway the driver was not even checking who had tickets or not. The train took us around Vaduz but not the castle, which was a desappointment as this is probably the main thing to check out in Vaduz. Otherwise, you go around the city quite quickly (it is only that small anyway) and then you can pick the places you might enjoy discover more, like the wine cellars. Interesting but nothing so special about that train ride.

“Not really a necessity, but fun anyway!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2013

The person at the ticket counter is quite chatty and managed to greet us in a number of languages he knew :-) As we were a group, he drove us himself. The center is quite small and we went through residential areas in 35 minutes. We saw the red house and the vineyards. Other than that, there were cars honking behind us and friendly drivers waving at us!
It is better to walk around if you want to see the center and to take this train if you have to kill time or have some fun as a group!
