Ruggell is the most northerly and low-lying of the Liechtenstein communities/municipalities, with population of 1932 in 2007.


The name is said to be from the Latin for "clearing the land" (roncale - ad roncalem). Most known for conservation areas and the historic St. Fridolin's Parish Church.

While Liechtenstein is known as a largely mountainous country, Ruggell is largely flat and is situated along the Rhine River, where the international borders with Switzerland and Austria meet.
