Attraction details
Type: Castles, Cultural
Owner description: 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.

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.

The castle itself is fairly uninspiring compared to what we have in Britain but it is worth the climb for the views on the way. A good view of the castle is from the road leading to the football stadium looking back but a telephoto lens would be needed for best results. Best pictures of it from below are in... More

This is one of the main attractions of the city where the current monarch still has an active residency

Take a brisk walk up hill from the city center to get to the gate of the castle. As the castle is currently occupied, you cannot go inside but it is of course worth taking a quick selfie before you head back down to the town square.

You cannot miss the castle, it overshadows Vaduz (one street actually). It is worth the steep climb from the town (although you can also reach it by car). Nice view from the top of the hill. Beware: you cannot visit the castle, the family still lives there.

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.
