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.

Be careful this place can only be enjoyed from the outside. You can also find a little terrace nearby that dominates the whole city of Vaduz.

Also on the path to the castle there is a platform with a nice view over the valley. The castle itself is nice from the outside but it is not possible to visit inside. Anyway, the... More

Great view of castle and mountains, could not get into castle which was a disappointment- you get a great view and picture if you walk down the gravel trail to the left looking up from the castle

The walk to the castle is a good walk-up the hill. On the way you see great views of the Alps and Vaduz. You can walk along the castle but it is not open for visits. Enjoy the walk and fresh air if you have time for it!

Due to the rainy weather and brief time I had, I was only able to view the castle from the main plaza in Vaduz. It is still a working castle so visitors are not allowed.

Nice medieval castle in tiny Liechtenstein, squeezed between Austria and Switzerland, beautiful views of the Alps.

There are no words that I can use to describe the small castle, you will have to close your eyes and think that it has existed since the 12th century, it is worth it a visit.

Such a shame that is place is not open to public, its one of the few highlights of Liechtenstein. Not that much else to see in Vaduz.

There isn't much to review about the castle as you can't walk in (from the outside it looks nice, I'll give them that). The 4/5 comes from the walk that takes you up there. Only 20 minutes, not too steep and absolutely lovely. The "road" is scattered with signs explaining the history of the country and the royal family, good... More

Such a magical castle. It has the fairytale magic with the perch on the hill and historic charm. Loved this site.
