It Is Now Possible to Rent the Entire Country of Liechtenstein for $70,000/Night

Renting cheap rooms from Airbnb‘s community? Old and busted. The new hotness, at least if you have a few tens of thousands to throw around: Renting villages or even an entire country.

Thanks to a partnership with Liechtenstein-based event production company Xnet, Airbnb is now offering to rent out villages in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland for $50,000-$65,000 per night. But high rollers will probably want to up their game and rent all of Liechtenstein, an independent nation with a population of 35,000. The price tag: $70,000 a night for a minimum of two nights. Here’s the listing.

What does that mean exactly? Will the Liechtensteiners throw off the yoke of oppression? It’s a little less drastic than it sounds.

A major component of renting a village or country is booking a large portion of the municipality’s available accommodations, but that is just the beginning. The possibilities for customizing the experience are almost endless — rename city streets and town squares, print your own temporary currencies, carve logos or names into the snow on the mountainside — and that is just the tip of the iceberg. The mayors and marching bands can welcome you with a custom medieval festival and present you the key to the city, or perhaps a wine tasting event at a Prince’s estate followed by a fireworks show is more your style.

Those are just a few examples of what you get when you rent a village or country, we didn’t even touch on the castles, fortresses, sports stadiums, and horseback riding yet

One very compelling reason to do this: To gloat over Snoop Dogg, who unsuccessfully tried to rent Liechtenstein last year.
