Liechtenstein

Country profile - Distinguishing factors (Liechtenstein)

What are the factors that distinguish your country from many others?

Climate

Liechtenstein enjoys a temperate continental climate. The vertical configuration of the land plays a significant role. Measurements of annual rainfall show around 900 to 1 200 mm in the valleys, with up to 1 900 mm in the alpine region. In spite of the country’s mountainous location, the climate can be described as temperate. Owing to the warming effect of the south wind (Föhn), vines and maize are successfully cultivated in the valleys. The Föhn extends the growing season in both spring and autumn.
