Exclaves and Enclaves[edit]

The municipalities of Liechtenstein, the Gemeinden, exhibit complex shapes, despite their small size.

Seven of the Gemeinden have one or more exclaves, in addition to the main territory:

  • Balzers: 2 exclaves
  • Eschen: 2 exclaves
  • Gamprin: 1 exclave
  • Planken: 4 exclaves, of which 1 is a true enclave
  • Schaan: 4 exclaves, of which 1 is a true enclave
  • Triesenberg: 1 exclave (around the town of Malbun)
  • Vaduz: 6 exclaves, of which 2 are true enclaves

Data codes[edit]

In ISO 3166-2, the codes of the municipalities start with LI-, followed by two digits (01–11, assigned in alphabetical order).

In FIPS 10-4 (standard withdrawn in 2008), the codes of the municipalities started with LS-, followed by the same two digits as the ISO codes.

As a member of the EFTA, Liechtenstein is included in the Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS). The three NUTS levels all correspond to the country itself (NUTS-1: LI0; NUTS-2: LI00; NUTS-3: LI000). Below the NUTS levels, there are two LAU levels (LAU-1: electoral districts; LAU-2: municipalities).
