Nature reserves in Liechtenstein

Protected nature reserves cover an area of 171 hectares in the valleys of Liechtenstein.

Placed under protection in 1978, Ruggeller Riet is the nature reserve with the greatest international significance. Indeed, Ruggeller Riet has even featured on several postage stamps! Most recently, a new nature reserve was created in Matilaberg in Triesen in 2011. 

Following a detailed analysis of Liechtenstein's flora and fauna, several woodland areas - around 27% of the country's total forest surface - were declared protected nature reserves. 

Other large protected areas in Liechtenstein include the Schwabbrünnen-Äscher wetlands (Schaan, Planken, Eschen), which in 1962 - together with Gampriner Seelein - became the country's first official nature reserve.
