The eastern region consists of the rugged piedmont of the Rhätikon Mountains, which is part of the central Alps. The highest peak in Liechtenstein is Grauspitz, situated on the border between Liechtenstein and Switzerland.  This mountain park stands 2,599 meters (8,527 ft) in height in the southeast of Liechtenstein.  Nearly 44% of Liechtenstein is covered in forest. The country’s landmass is slightly smaller than Washington DC, but also smaller than Andorra and Malta.  While the Rhine River flows on the western boundary, the Samina River originates in Liechtenstein as one of its most notable rivers.
