The third largest of Liechtenstein’s city areas, Triesen offers several historic churches that date from the fifteenth century. The city also has a weaving mill dating from 1863, which is an interesting monument to the Industrial Revolution. Liechtenstein is a very small, landlocked country in Western Europe that is bordered by Austria and Switzerland. Triesen is located within 6 km (less than 4 miles) from Vaduz — the capital city of Liechtenstein and the seat of government. The country and city are mountainous, alpine areas that are popular with winter sport enthusiasts.
Liechtenstein has a prosperous, highly industrialised economy. There are a large number of small businesses in the country and a vital financial service sector. The industries in Triesen include electronics, metal manufacturing, dental products, ceramics, pharmaceuticals, food products, precision instruments, tourism, and optical instruments. The Prince of Liechtenstein Foundation is a portfolio of private companies, museums, and art collections owned by the Princely Family of Liechtenstein. They include the LGT Group, the Hofkellerei Wineries, Wilfersdorf Agricultural and Forest Company, RiceTec, Liechtenstein Royal Museum, and the Liechtenstein Museum. There are still buildings in Triesen with available office space.
