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.

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

As it was said that the castle can not be seen from the inside as the family is still living there, we did not go up there as we had not much time anyway. But we were very happy that it was also good to see from downtown and so we had to chance to take nice pictures of it... More

We spent some nice time in Vaduz and decided to visit the castle as well. The castle can be seen from many parts of Liechtenstein and even from neighbouring Switzerland. But it still nice to view it from as close as you can get. We were with car and it was nice drive up to the castle. Amazing place.

You can see this castle in almost any place in the country. Please read YOU CAN NOT GO INSIDE THE CASTLE. This is still used today and the royal family doesn't want you going in. I tried lol

We spent two separate nights near Vaduz on our road tour - on the way out we viewed the castle from the town and on the way back we walked up to the castle gates, taking in the historical info on the boards along the path. The castle and environs were being set up for the national day on Aug... More

We didn't go up to the castle but still is a very nice view. If close to Vaduz it's nice to stop by and wander around the city and look up at the castle.

A pretty castle but not open for touring since the royal family still lives here. But drive up and take in the views.

Can't go onto the grounds but it's a nice castle to see. We passed it on the way through town and again heading up the mountain to our hotel. Nothing super special but nice to see it in passing.

All you can do is look at it, as it's closed to visitors, but it's a lovely chateau overlooking the town. Adds a nice touch to the atmosphere of Vaduz.
