This might come as quite a surprise to you, but the tiny principality of Liechtenstein has quite a history regarding their postal service. With the location of the country right in between Switzerland an Austria, the situation couldn’t have been better, regarding now historic postal routes. One crucial route back in the days, even before the Roman times, has been from Lindau at Lake Constance via Chur and Splügen Pass to Milan in Lombardy, Italy. Of course, the route passed through Liechtenstein, with its capital Vaduz. The route of the Lindau Messenger/Corriere di Lindo closed in 1826. Nowadays, the Post Museum in Vaduz is free of charge, allowing visitors an insight into this part of the history of the small country.

For a long time, Liechtenstein did not have a state postal service, only a private one. However, in 1840 the first postage stamp of the principality of Liechtenstein was issued. The exhibition at Post Museum Vaduz is based on a compilation by Philately Liechtenstein. Currently, there is a special exhibition honouring the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing, with unique space-mission themed postcards and letters and postcards sent from launch bases etc. – definitely worth a visit! 😉
