Schaan-Vaduz is one of the 4 train stations serving Liechtenstein, located in the town of Schaan and 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 line Feldkirch-Buchs,[1] between the station of Buchs (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] On the platform are located the rests of a rail, part of a dismantled track system used by freight wagons.[3]
