Balzers, Liechtenstein

Balzers is a municipality that also sports a football team, see ://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FC_Balzers/.  We have not checked the others.



The castle is the dominant feature, but it also is a grape-grower's heaven.  Here is a well-planted slopey hill, covered in blue netting to fend off the birds. 


Travel guru Rick Steves dismisses Liechtenstein in his book on Switzerland (don't bother, he says), but here he is touting it - See://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/travel/2003859289_websteves02.html/ Good.  His earlier pooh-pooh is unwarranted.
