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.

Vaduz Castle in Vaduz, the capital of that tiny, land-locked heaven in earth, is a typical stone-built castle that houses the royalty of Liechtenstein. The current ruler is reputed to be the richest in Europe with a wealth much more than the Queen of England. Land-locked between Austria and Switzerland, this country has a typical Alpine beauty to it. The... More

It is of course important to note that one cannot go in the castle- nevertheless it is nice to admire from the outside, with its painted shutters and rather odd shape. I would thoroughly recommend the hike up from the centre of town. We did it the day after two feet of snow had fallen, and it was a medium-difficulty... More

It is not only an old castle looming over the land, but its the current royal residence and you can drive right up to it! You can't go inside obviously, but you can certainly go up, take pics and wander around closer than most places where royals and leaders currently live! Neat!!

Really gorgeous castle. As royalty are still residing there, you cannot go inside, however it is a very beautiful piece of work, with a nice placement on a hill, over-looking much of Liechtenstein.

Last week I visit Liechtenstein and went to see the Vaduz castle. I drive through the town centre, and easily found the road climb to the castle. After a short drive I reach the castle, but the castle is no access to outsiders. I enjoyed the views from the mountain - whole Vaduz town and beyond. Not worth if anybody... More

due to work reason, I had a chance to go visit vaduz castle in October. looking from outside, vaduz castle is very simple and you may not think they are people living inside. but if you go inside, vaduz castle has a great view of Liechtenstein, looking at the winery, mountain and villages. not just that, some of the art...

Even though the tour might not be worth it, but the drive up to the Castle is worth every minute of your time. Overall, I am not a huge fan of Vaduz city, where everything is over priced. I would recommend taking the bus/car up, since the hike is quite painful. If you are renting a car in Zurich, it... More

The castle itself is closed to the public but its hill is beautiful from afar and you can climb on it (15-20 min, medium effort) to see the beautiful views of Vaduz and the castle up close. Well worth an hour round trip.
