Four special stamps with photos by Marco Nescher depict breathtaking views of Liechtenstein’s mountain landscape. The first part of the series “Summit Crosses” appeared in 2009 to commemorate 100 years of the Liechtenstein Alpine Club and was extremely well received. The current four peaks also give a vague idea of just how impressive the alpine world of the small state is.
To the north-west of Sass, the two rock columns that form the “Kelchle” (fact value: CHF 1.00) rise to 1'914 metres above sea level. The rock formation has a magical appeal for climbers and is often referred to as Liechtenstein’s sugar loaf in the winter when it is snow-capped. The “Mittlerspitz” (face value: CHF 2.00) owes its name to its position between Mittagsspitz and Rotspitz, when seen from Triesen. The “Hubel” (face value: CHF 2.60), also called Silberhorn, is a mountain ridge located in the high valley of Malbun. The folded layers of rock at “Kläusli” (fact value: CHF 1.50) similarly present a fascinating sight. The stamp with the summit rising to a height of 2'585 metres above sea level also serves as Liechtenstein’s SEPAC stamp this year. SEPAC, an association of 13 small postal administrations in Europe, issues stamps on common themes every year, the theme this year being “Spectacular views”.
