The Principality of Liechtenstein, located in central Europe, is bounded on the east by Austria and on the south, west, and north by Switzerland. It has a total area of only 160 square km.

The Rhine River flows along the western edge of Liechtenstein. A narrow strip of flat farmland lies next to the river. The snow-topped foothills of the Alps cover most of the country's eastern and southern sections, rising to over 2,400m. The mountain slopes are covered with pine forests and fine grazing meadows.

Liechtenstein has a mild climate. Average temperatures range from -1C in January to 21C in July. The average annual precipitation is about 1,000mm.

Liechtenstein hosted the Games of the Small States of Europe in 1999, upon the completion of the first round of organisers and is also next in line to organise the XIV Games in 2011. Liechtenstein's best ever ranking was in 1995 in Luxembourg, when the Principality climbed to fourth place in the medals table. Still, Liechtenstein has not been able to avoid the last place in the overall table, trailing Andorra by two gold medals.
