2023 WPT Prime Liechtenstein Event Preview

The 2023 WPT Prime Liechtenstein festival will be played from August 30 through September 11 and it will be the first time that the World Poker Tour visits the European country. Located between Switzerland and Austria, Liechtenstein’s flag is one that very few poker players have on their Hendon Mob profile. You could become one of them if you manage to cash in one of the festival’s dozen events.

The City: Vaduz, Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein is a Central European country located between Switzerland and Austria. Its territory is the result of the union of two enclaves: Vaduz and Schellenberg, made up of a total of 11 communities. The capital is Vaduz and the most populous city is Schaan. It is known for being the fourth smallest country in the world behind the Vatican, Monaco and San Marino.

The principality is known to be considered a tax haven. Although it is not a member of the European Union, since December 2011 it has been part of the European area of free movement. Liechtenstein is one of the six micro-states in Europe. It is also, together with Uzbekistan, one of the only two countries in the world that is doubly isolated from the sea, that is, from Liechtenstein you have to cross at least two borders to reach the sea.

The main attractions of the country are:

  • Vaduz Castle 🏰
  • National Museum of Art and History 🖼️
  • Hiking and mountain biking in Malbun 🚲
  • St. Peter’s Cathedral ⛪️
  • Liechtenstein National Park 🦌
