Situated in the central Alps between Switzerland and Austria, this small, landlocked, independent principality has an area of about 158 sq km/62 sq mi.
It contains part of the upper Rhine valley and mountains rising to 2,600 m/8,500 ft. It has a similar climate to that described on the pages covering the Swiss and Austrian Alps (see the tables for Innsbruck and Zürich).
