Liechtenstein recorded a total of 58,400 tourists in 2020, ranking 184th in the world in absolute terms.

That smaller countries regularly perform lower in a comparison of the absolute number of guests, is obvious. By putting the tourist numbers in relation to the population of Liechtenstein, the result is much more comparable picture: With 1.5 tourists per resident, Liechtenstein ranked 34th in the world. In Western Europe, it ranked 4th.

Tourism in Liechtenstein

Development of the tourism sector in Liechtenstein from 1995 to 2020

The following chart shows the number of tourist arrivals registered in Liechtenstein each year. Anyone who spends at least one night in the country but does not live there for more than 12 months is considered a tourist. Insofar as the survey included the purpose of the trip, business trips and other non-tourism travel purposes have already been excluded. The number of people passing through within the same day, and e.g. crew members of ships or flights are also not considered as tourists in most countries. If the same person travels in and out more than once within the same year, each visit counts again.

Tourists per year in Liechtenstein


Our data on tourist numbers, revenues and expenditures are based on information from the World Tourism Organization. However, to ensure international comparability, the data for some years or countries were manually researched and corrected if they obviously included visitors without overnight stays. In these cases, the data were taken from the official communications of the respective national tourism authorities.

The WTO additionally points out that in some countries the number of tourists is only counted at airports, in others also at border crossings or even hotels. A comprehensive and reliable indication is therefore hardly possible in any country.
