Are there any mosques in Liechtenstein? I like to visit a local mosque in every city I visit. Any Idea?

There seems to be a small mosque in Liechtenstein, the green mosque in Triesen (about 2km from the city center of Vaduz), that is also mentioned in this travel stub about Liechtenstein for "Halal-conscious travelers". The local population of Muslims only numbers about 2000, but according to Wikipedia, there is one yearly work permit offered for an Imam.

Why Only 2000 ... ? That's more or less 5 % of the population (provided the information is correct)! Quite a lot. –  PERSONA NON GRATA Jan 25 '13 at 18:24

Yet another perspective: Liechtenstein is a rather rural area. No big city. Compare the proportion of Muslims to the proportion in a comparable region in Germany. Then the 5% may be high again. –  PERSONA NON GRATA Jan 25 '13 at 19:39

think they mean that it's not economical to build a large mosque for just 2000 people in a country where there's no active islamisation campaign funded by Saudi (or other big oil) groups so that the locals have to fund it themselves. This is a different situation from Indonesia, where villages are paid millions by Saudi groups to build mosques in exchange for sending people on the Hadj. –  jwenting Jan 26 '13 at 6:09
