Rivers in Liechtenstein

The Rhine River

The Rhine, which forms 27km of the country's western border with Switzerland, is the most important river in Liechtenstein. The Samina in the Alps measures 12km and is the second-longest river (stream) in the Principality, running from its source in the Val√ľnatal Valley before joining the Ill and flowing into the Rhine in Austria. The only natural lake is the Gampriner Seele, which was formed in 1927 when the Rhine burst its banks.
