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.

Just what a castle in a slightly mysterious and very picturesque Principality should look like! It dominates the hillside and makes for lovely photographs. The view from outside the castle is wonderful too, both of the town below and of the mountains beyond. You can drive up the hill to a car park if you want to avoid walking up... More

Vaduz castle is a private property so it closed for visitors. It is still a worth visit place just to look at the castle from the road and take few photos. Views of the area are breathtaking. There is a free parking circa 100m from the castle. One great looking castle. Worth to stop for few minutes when in the... More

Firstly, you cannot enter the castle as it is an active residence. Stopped in this tiniest of countries just to check off on bucket list. Ok stop if you're passing by on the highway to elsewhere. No real major attractions in Lichtenstein.

It's not really an attraction since the castle is privately owned and you can't even go on the grounds. There is a nice platform to view the valley just below the castle and walking trials behind it on the hill. We drove up the hill to see it, not sure it would be worth the long walk. I would suggest... More

The castle is on the top of a hill and offers a great view to the capital of Liechtenstein. it is not possible to visit the interior as the Royal Family lives there. It is amazing to see that there are no guards in the entrance (at least when I went). It is a picturesque country in the middle of... More

Even is cannot be visited - castle is amazing. Jusr park in the city center (or whenever), and take a walk of 15 minutes. Theres a lot of grass and some bench - perfect place to piknig, with view to the castle, mountains, liechtenstein and switzerland.

We chose to climb the steep slopes to reach the top of the hill with the castle. Given the heat on the day of our visit it was very tiring although twenty minutes should be enough for the average person. There aren't many seating opportunities on the way up with only one bench near the top when you meet with... More

We were only passing through Vaduz, and didn’t have too much time to explore. We were intending to visit the castle but when we found out there was no public access to the castle we decided just to view it from the town rather than struggle up the hill. It’s a typical Tyrollean style medieval castle with its pointed roofs,... More

We went to visit Vaduz Castle just so we would have something to do in Liechtenstein. I love the name of this tiny country. The castle is off limits because the family lives there. We drove further up the road for free parking & a free bathroom. Then we walked a bit down the road to see a beautiful vista... More
