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.

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.
