Sunday Stamps II - 42

issued June 2012 (also a joint issue with Germany, identical design)
Pfälzer Hütte – Palatine Hut (at 2108m) is near the spot where the borders of Austria, Switzerland and  Liechtenstein meet. The original hut was built in 1928 by the German and Austrian Alpine Association on Bettlerjoch, a mountain saddle in Liechtenstein. By 1950, after the hut had been uninhabited and looted for several years,  the Liechtenstein Alpine Association took over and now it is open from June to October with meals and accommodation. From here it is a moderate hike to the summit of Naafkopf (2570m) and Augstenberg (2359m)

for stamps with scenery


  1. Such a beautiful scenery!
    Alas in our country (Netherlands) there are no mountains, so viewing sceneries like this is impossible (unless viewing from an airplane, baloon, helicopter or so :-) )

  2. A lovely view when waking up in the morning ready for breakfast in the hut and a nice theme of the meeting of borders and mountaineers. Liechtenstein has such an inventive stamp issue for a small country.

  3. I have received the German twin of this some time ago. I remembered the letter when I read your post. I hadn't paid attention to the fact that it was a join issue.See it here:

  4. Just beautiful. This is the first Liechtenstein stamp I've see,n.
