Visible from far and wide yet so close you could almost touch it, the emblem of Liechtenstein towers over Vaduz on a rock terrace which can be reached along a romantic footpath. The castle was first built some 700 years ago. Since 1712 it has been in the possession of the Prince of Liechtenstein. Furthermore, since 1938 it has been the residence of the prince’s family, so it is not open to the public. The 12th century keep and the structures on the east side are the oldest parts of the castle.

The position of the castle overlooking Vaduz is its best feature. You can't go in so all you can do is view it from afar. Just an okay structure, there are more impressive castle structures elsewhere. Not worth a aide trip on its own.

It's a beautiful castle with great views back over Vaduz but there's no entry to the public as it is the residence of the princes. There is decent parking just nearby and a pretty walk down the hill back into town with information about Liechtenstein history. Don't factor in more than 10 minutes for seeing the castle and taking a... More

MAGNIFICENT Schloss Vaduz or Vaduz Castle is the home of the Prince of Leichtenstein and the Royal Family. Leichtenstein is a Principality like Monaco and is only about one quarter the size of Singapore. The imposing castle is perched high up on the mountain and overlooks the capital city Vaduz. For obvious reasons, Eintritt ist verboten which means in German... More

From the small village of Vaduz the castle seems like a fairytale. But don't bother to go all the way up. When you see the castle in front of you, you'll get the best look over Vaduz (and probably the most of Liechtenstein). There is no view from the castle, just non-welcoming messages to the public. An attraction that is... More

You cannot enter the castel, but the surrounding is nice, and the view to the Alps and the city is really amazin. I think at least for this view it worth to check.

Worth a visit outside of course since the royal family lives there. There is a parking place near to the castle where you can park your car o you can walk up to there too. The view is cool but not so amazing.

After staying the night in Saint Louis this was the fourth stop on our trip to visit 5 countries in less than 6 hours. Sadly it's closed to the public but a great photo opportunity. Saint Louis - France Weil am Rhein - Germany Basel & Zurich - Switzerland Vaduz - Lichtenstein Feldkirch - Austria
