Balzers, Liechtenstein

Balzers is a small village in the southernmost part of Liechtenstein

The whole town only has a population of ~4,500 people.

The main part of the village sits on the east bank of the Rhine River.  Switzerland is on the other side.

The main attraction is the Gutenberg Castle.  It sits above the town on a 70 meter  (230 feet) high hill.

The castle has likely been around since the Bronze Age but its first mention was in 1263.
