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.

Quaint and picturesque

The castle is high up in the mountain. It's the drive to Liechtenstein from Austria that is really picturesque. The central market square is good for some souvenir shopping.

This castle is one of the reasons you visit this tiny little country in Europe. As it is situated on top of the mountain, I hiked up and along the way, I managed to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the country. It's lovely and also a great spot to take some nice pictures. Worth a visit.

Nothing great about this, just like an ordinary castle...probably you can see encase you want or want to be interested in these kind of buildings. Else avoid and try to see beauty of nature surround.

Imposing old castle overlooking the capital still lived in by family so restricted viewing, there are other romantic castles in area equally as attractive.

The castle is very interesting in appearance. It is set up on the hill and you can see it from various parts of the city. We had a car and drove up there. Unfortunately, you can not go inside. One major warning - the streets have radar speed enforcement without good signage. I got a ticket for going about five... More

We stopped here for a quick stop on our trip to the south of France. It was raining so we just checked out the castle from the road. The roads are tight and hard to get around. Great picture opportunity.

It is no wonder such a minute destination has almost nothing to offer sightseeingwise; therefore, the exterior visit to the palace (it is not a castle!) is a must! From "downtown" Vaduz one can follow the signs and walk up the hill, not that steep or hard as many claim! Make sure to bring a light jumper or jacket, for... More
