In 2019, the Principality of Liechtenstein celebrates its 300th anniversary. A series of events are being held throughout the year to mark this major milestone incorporating the local population in the jubilee festivities.
A year of celebrations began on 23 January 2019 with a spectacular birthday party symbolising the unification of the Principality’s two regions, the Oberland and the Unterland, together with international guests and the local population. Throughout the whole year, the anniversary is being celebrated with all kinds of events, from special exhibits in museums to anniversary wine and cheese.
One such event and another chance to look back at the Principality‘s history, albeit from a somewhat different perspective, is the weekend event History 3.0 taking place on 26 May 2019. The event will be used as an opportunity to launch Liechtenstein-Trail and the app LIstory (Liechtenstein History). Using state-of-the-art technology and augmented reality this app presents information on places of historical interest along the Liechtenstein Trail and tell the interesting and oftentimes surprising stories behind them. Thanks to the app, Vaduz Castle will for the rst time be virtually opened for locals and tourists alike.
The walking trail will take in all eleven municipalities in Liechtenstein and will invite visitors to discover the history of the Principality and at the same time enjoy the most beautiful natural surroundings and most fascinating places in the country. One could say the past is brought into the present with the technology of the future. From this weekend on the LIstory app and the trail will be permanently available free of charge.
