In the Vaduz area a Hutterian Brethren Bruderhof was formed in 1934, modeled on those of the Hutterian Brethren in the 16th century. It was an offshoot of the Rhönbruderhof near Neuhof (Fulda district), was set up near Triesenberg above Vaduz (elevation 5,170 ft.) and was called the Almbruderhof Silum, which was moved to England in 1938.
