Today, Prince Alois hosted 33 young graduate apprentices at Schloss Vaduz. These young men and women are the highest achieving apprentice graduates of the year. They received a guided tour of the castle before being given their diplomas by Prince Alois. After receiving their diplomas they had the honor of signing the castle's Golden Book (those large elaborate books you always see dignitaries signing when they pay official visits to countries, towns and historic buildings). It is a long standing tradition that the highest achieving students completing the apprentice program in the Principality are received at the castle where they are presented their diplomas and add their names to the Golden Book.
