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.

Nice view

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.

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

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

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!!
