We left Salzburg's main train station at 10AM and arrived in Buchs, Switzerland Train Station at 2:15PM. After locking our large bags in a luggage locker, we grabbed the next bus to Vaduz, Liechtenstein.
As soon as we left the bus, we were on the main square
At the end of the tourist shop street, their was a tourist information center. Here, we got a small map of Vaduz and tried to find some interesting things to see.
There is an interesting castle on the top of a hill (where else would all these castles be?); however, it was privately owned and not open to the public. THis meant that we could walk 40 minutes in the rain to the castle, only to stand outside of the gates and not even get close to it. Ultimately, we decided not to go to the castle...
Instead, we walked around the little city for a little while longer and also visited a free PostMuseum. After we felt that we had seen all there was to see, we headed to the train station and caught the train at 6:30 PM for Zurich.
We arrived in Zurich around 8PM, found our apartment and got our things settled. We walked to a little pizza place, ate one of the cheapest pizzas possible (around 13 euro) and returned to the hotel/apartment. Fortunately, they had free clothes washing facilities, so we washed our dirty clothes and hung them to dry. We decided to train to Lucerne tomorrow for the day, and explore Zurich the day after tomorrow.
