Balzers, the southernmost municipality of Liechtenstein, comprises the settlements of Balzers and Mäls. The townscape is shaped by Gutenberg Castle, here visible on the top of the hill with the St. Nicholas´ Parish Church in the foreground. Balzers was first mentioned in writing in the 9th century. The name is of Latin origin and means manor or palatinate.
Balzers was a horse station on the Lindau-Milano postal route. The first mail collection station in Liechtenstein was established here in 1817 and became the first post office of the country in 1839.
Since the Second World War, the municipality of Balzers has undergone a decisive structural transformation, in which the areas of industry, trade, and services in particular have developed considerably.
