Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein Border Patrol

Liechtenstein is a small European country about 12 miles by 6 miles in size, and nestled between Switzerland and Austria. We fly out of Altenrhein airport, about 12 miles to the north on Lake Constance, Switzerland. The southern leg follows the border along the Rhine river, and the return leg turns on four peaks in the Alps.
There don’t seem to be any structures along this border (why would there be, as it is so inaccessible), but at the end of the flight you will be able to proudly assert that you are one of the brave few that have flown the Liechtenstein Border!

WP 1 - Rail bridge across the Rhine at Margrethen
Look for the two lakes and a playing field, and the two bridges (next image)

WP 2 - Bridge
The border actually starts 0.2 nm S of the bridge, so the bridge is near enough!
