Anthem Lyrics

Oben am jungen Rhein

Lehnet sich Liechtenstein

An Alpenhöh'n.

Dies liebe Heimatland,

Das teure Vaterland,

Hat Gottesweise Hand

Für uns erseh'n.





Hoch lebe Liechtenstein

Blühend am jungen Rhein,

Glücklich und treu.

Hoch leb' der Fürst vom Land,

Hoch unser Vaterland,

Durch Bruderliebe-Band

Anthem Lyrics English

High above the young Rhine

Lies Liechtenstein, resting

On Alpine heights.

This beloved homeland,

This dear fatherland

Was chosen for us by

God's wise hand.





Long live Liechtenstein,

Blossoming on the young Rhine,

Happy and faithful!

Long live the Prince of the Land,

Long live our fatherland,

United by brotherly bonds and free!





Lyrics: Jakob Josef Jauch, 1850

Adopted: 1951
