I was impressed with the state of the building. It seems that many of the original architectural elements are intact. There is also a trove of weapons, furniture, and art spanning the many years of the buildings existence.

We were lucky to have a local guide who told us all about the castle. The views were amazing. A lot of really old furniture that we wanted to touch until I dug out my phrase book- if they had used the word verboten, then I would have understood.

This is the real deal - a 900 year old castle in great condition. The museum is worth the small price to pay to walk through history and see how people lived hundreds of years ago. There is a cafe in the courtyard that does not require a fee, but pay the fee and enjoy the castle and keep. This... More

No one should visit Feldkirch without visiting the Schattenburg, the castle that towers over the city. Even the restaurant there is famed for its enormous 30cm wiener schnitzel.

The museum is housed in an old castle that dominates the town. The tower offers a nice view over the surroundings and 2 rooms with old rifles and other weapons. Other rooms display old furniture and some church icons and sculptures. I liked the children room.
