Apart from Feldkirch's historic town centre the main attraction here is the castle Schattenburg, in an imposing position above the town. It can be reached in a few minutes going up the stairs of the Bettlerstiege, but it can also be approached by car. The well maintained and restored castle, built from the 13th to the 17th century, is now... More

I guess too many people wouldn't go to Feldkirch but if you do, this is a great place to visit. The museum is housed in the original palace which has been very well maintained. it consists of a number of rooms which depict various purposes for the castle inhabitants. There are a number of very old paintings on wood and... More

Other than the architectures in the town, this museum is worth a visit. Information (available) in 4 languages is well organized. Visit takes about 1.5hrs. Tips: if you would like to try the best schnitzel, better reserve in the restaurant (just walk in a bit inside) before you visit the museum.

We were on vacation a few years ago, and spent one night in the beautiful little village of Feldkirch Austria. I absolutely fell in love with this beautiful village and have even said that I would love to eventually move there when we retire. It is a classic little village with cobblestone streets and so so beautiful with the Alps... More

A very good restaurant, with good and honest staff, ancient area and DELICIOUS food. you can trust the waiter/es if he/she said their Schnitzel is the best. At least try Zwiebelrostbraten once, you shouldn't miss it. If you want to go there at weekends, call them first. Most of the time, no matter in winter or summer, they are fully... More

It's a good Wiener Schnitzel, the staff are friendly and it's something a bit special because of the location. Wearth a try.

Had a chance of visiting Schattenburg castle with a few business associates. Could not see the museum since it was closed. However, thoroughly enjoyed the dinner & the views of the Feldkirch area from the castle.On one side of the castle you can view the city while on the other side is a very beautiful view of the hills &...

The museum is worth a visit. Located in the Schattenburg Castle, which itself is interesting to visit, perched on its rocky outcrop over the town of Feldkirch, the museum contains an interesting range of local exhibits. The view of the locality from the tower is worth the entry fee.

This place is really nice, but hasn't gone too much into the modern paradigm of interactivity for kids. However in some ways that was also refreshing, and there is certainly a lot to see there, and the area seems to have an interesting backstory. I'd recommend this, but maybe not so much for younger visitors.

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.
