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.

You can't go inside but the way up is nice to walk and with a lovely view over Vaduz. On the path there are boards with information about Liechtenstein. The first few meters are very steep, after that it is ok, so don't hesitate.

If you have some time to spend in Vaduz, you'll find some good views as part of the walk or a ride to the castle. Nothing special in it's architecture, but it still interesting from history and local tradition point of view.

The walk from the center of Vaduz involved a steep and long climb up slippery paths. However, this pathway was lined with amazing signs and info about the history of this micronation. It made for a great read! But that had to be the highlight of this attraction because once you reached the top of this castle, there was not... More

While staying in summer in Vaduz, I must say I went on one of my most picturesque walks ever! The views of the castle are so stunning. What even make this castle so special is that it's not too big. Definitely something to undertake during the summertime. Unfortunately the castle was closed and visitors were not allowed inside. Do enjoy... More

It does not look exactly impressive from the outside, but the fact you can't visit it makes it even worse. The only good thing about it is walking up the hill.

Vaduz Castle is a lovely castle on the top of a ridge, surrounded by lovely mountains. Interestingly enough, the castle gave its name to the town it is located in: Vaduz. Sadly we were unable to visit the castle as no tours are given in there. Probably due to the Prince of Liechtenstein who lives there. Still, it's worthwhile a... More

Place is fine to visit, only when you want photo of Vaduz city which from this perspective/angle is also nothing interesting.

I visited on a sunny day in December. The view of the castle with snowed mountains in the background was definitely beautiful and a good photo opportunity. The hike from Vaduz to the castle and up is nice, with great views.

The area is very nice to walk around, but this is a private residence so just enjoy the outside. There are trails to walk/hike close by.

The castle is not open to the public. There are some events that are held inside generally invited guests only. It is one of the most spectacular residences in Europe. You can view from various spots and it is a great landmark.
