Driving in Buchs:

  • Like the rest of Switzerland, Buchs has well-maintained roads, but being a small town, it won't have the traffic intensity of bigger cities. However, the streets can be narrow in places.
  • There's ample parking available, both street-side and in parking lots. However, it's always a good idea to check the parking rules and tariffs.
  • Due to its proximity to Liechtenstein, it's common for travelers to drive between the two, so always have your travel documents handy if you plan to cross the border. Check with your local agent if this is permitted in your hire car.
