People in Liechtenstein
37,000 people live in Liechtenstein. 66 out of 100
Liechtensteiners come directly from Liechtenstein, they
were also born here. 20 out of 100 come from neighboring
countries, where German is also spoken, and three out of
100 from Italy. There are also a few other states. In

Most of the people live in the Rhine valley. The
places are called Balzers, Triesen, Vaduz and Schaan.
Many people work in industry and in the service sector

birth, as there is no longer a maternity ward in
