Development of the movement:

Scouting in Liechtenstein began in Schaan in 1931 and Guiding started in Vaduz in 1932. A first-aid group for Scouts and Guides was founded in 1973.

The Guides and Scouts have had their own shop since 1976 and in 1979 they started publishing a bi-monthly magazine for leaders, which is called Knoten.

Co-operation between the Scout and the Guide Associations has increased since 1981 when joint activities were organized to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Scout Movement in Liechtenstein. In 1989 the two Associations merged and its official name is now Pfadfinder und Pfadfinderinnen Liechtensteins. HSH Prince Nikolaus of Liechtenstein and his sister, HSH Princess Nora, are honorary members of the Movement.

Among the main events in the scouting year are the annual summer camps, winter camps and various activities for all branches at national level

Programme:

Each division draws up its own programme. Leaders organize various activities for all branches at local and national level, and these are adapted to meet the requirements of the individual and the community.

Relationship to society:

Members of the Association are involved in many community service projects.

During Lent, Guides organize a Soup Day in most villages, together with the Liechtenstein Lent Charity.

Communication and Co-operation

The Association informs its members and the general public about its activities through the national press, as well as through its bi-monthly magazine Knoten.

The Association supports activities of the Liechtenstein Lent Charity and the Liechtenstein Missionary Society

Training:

Attendance at international gatherings is encouraged, and the number of members participating in international camps, seminars and training sessions is increasing. During the last years, members participated in Juliette Low Seminars, Eurofolk, World Jamborees, Rover Moots, plus several other international training sessions, seminars and camps.

Outdoor and Environmental Activities

Summer, autumn and winter camps are enjoyed by all members of the Association. Various outdoor activities are also organized during the annual programmes of all branches.
