Sculptures in Vaduz

Located in the middle of Austria and Switzerland, the Principality of Liechtenstein is a land of authentic alpine landscapes with the characteristics of a small city. Even though Vaduz is the capital, Schaan is more populous with 583 more people than the capital total of 5,425 (2015). But Vaduz is an important cultural hub that is home to a combination of local and international art. The art is condensed on Stadlte Street, which is closed for cars between the government district and town hall. It is in this area that most of the sculptures are located. There are several street sculptures and four museums on Stadlte Street:  Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, Liechtenstein Postage Stamp Museum, Liechtensteinisches Landesmuseum and Kunstraum Englanderbau. A few sculptures of particular note are:

  • “The Reclining Woman” by Fernando Botero, a Colombian artist known for his exaggerated forms.
  • “Taenzerin” by German-Italian artist Carin Grudda.
  • “Rolling Head I” by Swiss artist Kurt Laurenz Metzler.
  • “Sitting High” by Swiss artist Robert Indermaur.
