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.

This is a good museum but you REALLY do need a guide to fully explain things, a lovely location and presents a wonderful range of views of the town.

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 was always interesting, what with climbing up and down and through the various rooms, but a recent renovation has made it excellent. It is small, and limited in what it... More
