The two parts were first mentioned in 842 as Palazole.Balzers is the home of the Burg Gutenberg, a 12th-century castle which is located on a rocky hill in the center of the town.TransportHeliportThere is no airport in Liechtenstein, but Balzers has a small heliport available for charter flightsEconomyOerlikon BalzersThe headquarters of the major thin film coating, solar and vacuum technology company Oerlikon Balzers is located in Balzers.Twin towns and sister cities Saitama, Japan (2000)
