Vaduz Castle
Write a review
About
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.

The Vaduz Castle looms above the town of Vaduz. Like everything in Liechtenstein, it appears very neat and orderly, despite being 700 years old. The Prince of Liechtenstein lives in the castle, which is reportedly only open to the public in August.

There isn't much to see . It's just a nice medieval castle with a beautiful view, and the official residence of the Prince of Lichtenstein. We passed by because we were in Vaduz. Otherwise, not sure it is worth the detour.

there is parking available just up the street. Walk down, get your Pic and move on. Only if you happen to be in the area or are driving through. Not recommended

Castle is fairly small, and is not for sightseeing. This is actually the house of the prince/ruler of Liechtenstein, and does not have tours.

Castle itself is a highlight of the city of Vaduz. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Liechtenstein. You can walk up the hill (10 min) from vaduz town centre any you will be greeted with some info signs about the country, city and the castle.

It was a very nice hike up to the castle. You could see the overview of the whole country. Liechtenstein is a must visit if you are staying in Zürich. It is so easy to travel to the country over. Highly recomment.

Unmistakable. The castle that exists high up a cliff. The central attraction of Vaduz. Go in August when invited into castle ( I heard) otherwise not allowed in. Tours take you around the paths.

Gorgeously situated and impressively well-preserved, definitely a must-see in Liechtenstein. Highly recommend having a proper tour and enjoying as well the surroundings. Liechtenstein overall has astonishing nature and is incredibly clean with perfectly arranged attractions and houses. It is by far one of Europe's gems.

A must see when visiting Vaduz - not much else to do to be honest. While you can't ho into the castle there is a nice walk up to it
