Liechtenstein Now and Then

The Principality of Liechtenstein has undergone rapid change over the last 120 years: it has developed from a poor, largely agricultural country into a rich industrial and services nation.

This change can be clearly seen in the appearance of the villages. Their appearance at the beginning of the 20th century is documented on many postcards.

The exhibition “Liechtenstein then and now – historical picture postcards and current photos tell the story”( Liechtenstein damals und heute – Historische Ansichtskarten und aktuelle Fotos erzählen) shows selected postcards with motifs from all eleven municipalities, juxtaposed with the same photographic perspective of today’s situation.
