Vaduz Castle

Vaduz Castle: Address, Phone Number, Vaduz Castle Reviews: 4/5

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.

Nice place. Easy walk from the centre of Vaduz

It isn't a special castle or anything. It is unique because it is in Liechtenstein which is enough. You can't go inside (as far as my knowledge is not mistaken) but you can hike up and have a wonderful view. Definitely worth your time

A nice walk!
Sep 2020 • Family
When you are in Liechtenstein and you have time and you are interested to do a walk. I would suggest it to you. to walk to the castle.

The route starts near to the Rathaus you have to walk a steep path for a little bit and than a normal Stoney path. But on the path there are beautiful spots were you have a view Liechtenstein and the surrounding mountains.

The castle, originally a medieval castle, which has been changed over the years its a landmark of Liechtenstein today it’s used as the official residence by the Royal Family.

From the castle there are furthermore beautiful views.
Worth the walk!

Probably the top thing to do in Liechtenstein is to visit the castle where the royal family lives... but wait! It’s only possible to visit it inside once at year.. anyway nice views around.

The highlight of this state, take a leisurely walk along the lovely walk path and view over Vaduz and the Rhine Valley. The Vaduz Castle is a medieval castle built in the 16th century and is the landmark of Liechtenstein.

Ruled by a Prince who lives in a castle.
Feb 2020
There isn't much to do in Lichtenstein--in fact, aside from two castles, there is nothing to do there. But we stayed in Zurich and it's a new country ruled by a Prince who lives in a castle. There aren't many places that can boast of that. It's very quaint and clean. The hour (plus) drive from Zurich was well worth it. If you had to take the train, bus, walk route--maybe not so worth it.

This was a very quick trip from Lindau. The town and castle were worth the trip. This country is very small but very near many sites.

Private property?
Feb 2020
We got there, it was closed. And has a sign showing Private Property. I thought it was open to public... a little disappointed...

Steep walk uphill, but worth the view!

Although the castle isn’t open for visitors, it is worth the walk up to see a beautiful view of Vaduz. Great opportunity to rake neat pictures!!

Nice castle & scenery, but you can't go in!
Dec 2019
We were just doing a quick pass through Liechtenstein enroute to somewhere else & decided to check this off the list. There are hiking trails in the area & pretty easy car access. Nice castle but not open to the public, so I probably wouldn't go out of your way for it given all the other castles in Europe that you can actually tour.

Amazed!

The long and steep walk was all worth it after we see the view and the castle. Just really amazing though we did not get a chance to get inside but the view is just great. Would really recommend to visit Vaduz Castle.
