Schaan-Vaduz is one of the four train stations serving Liechtenstein, located in the town of Schaan, 3.5 km from Vaduz. It is owned by the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB).

Overview[edit]

Schaan-Vaduz is situated on the international and electrified Feldkirch-Buchs line,[1] between the station of Buchs SG (in Switzerland) and the stop of Forst Hilti (in the northern suburb of Schaan). It is served only by regional trains.

Located in the middle of town, the station is composed of a two-storey building, a wooden shed and a platform serving the first track. The second track has no platform and is rarely used.[2] Located on the platform is the remnants of a rail line, part of a dismantled track system used by freight wagons.[3]
