On any other day, the castle is just a castle that you can only see from the outside. It's nice looking, but nothing special. However, August 15 is Liechtenstein National Day, and the royal family open the castle gardens to the public, and serve food and drinks! The royal family is also around and you can usually get pictures with... More

The castle is located at top of the mountain. It is prince and his family's private property so non-public. I could see from below but you can go up and take much more beautiful photos from on high. The view must be fascinating.

Vaduz is a nice town and a good starting point for nice walking paths in the mountains surrounding Liechtenstein. Especially around Drei Kapuziner, some impressive tracks with magnificent and quite steep views.

We rented a car in Paris and decided, hey, let's drive to Zurich! And while we're at it, let's go to Liechtenstein because, well, it's where Heath Ledger's character was from in A Knight's Tale! Sir Ulrich von Liechtenstein! In all seriousness, I love visiting and exploring tiny countries that most people never heard of. The idea of going to... More

Vaduz Castle is in a nice location overlooking the city. Unfortunately, because the royal family still lives in the castle you cannot visit. Despite this, it is a nice hike from the town up to the castle where you can get some nice photos. I would recommend hiking up to the castle instead of driving up there.

We decided to hike up to the castle during an enjoyable afternoon in Vaduz rather than drive. The hike up the initial part of the path is quite steep (but we knew what we were getting into). The bonus of hiking vs. driving was the informational placards along the path that provided information about Liechtenstein (government; economy; history; etc.). As... More

We drove up to see the castle, but it is not open to the public and there really isn't anywhere you can even get a good view of it up close. You get the best view from down on the main road.

My Swiss friends and I stopped at the Vaduz Castle during a trip into Liechtenstein. Luckily we drove to the top of the hill, because there was not much to see once you got there. I would not have been happy after that trek if I had walked. No one in town warned us that unlike most castles in Europe,... More

There really isn't much to do in Vaduz, unless you like to shop. We of course were in Liechtenstein just to, you know, go to Liechtenstein because we could. We did the walk up to the castle; it was nice to stretch our legs and there are signs along the way giving some history. However, as others have said, you... More
