This is a great place, with building and display items from medieval times, and more recent - lots of firearms on display. The price of the museum is excellent value considering the broad array of history available for viewing. Well worth an hour or two of your time.

This place is fantastic. This museum has information in English and several other languages in each room explaining the rooms function and the displays. It's well presented and well maintained and the staff friendly and helpful. Totally worth visiting before enjoying a meal in the castle restaurant. The museum entry can only be paid in cash.

We walked up from town but you can opt to drive as well. This place is full of history. Very affordable and information is also offered in English which made it easier for us. Great history and lovely views at the top. A nice morning or afternoon.

A most interesting museum tracing the history of the area, particularly highlighting the castle's location in defending the local area and its relationship with nearby nations through the centuries. A pity we couldn't see the stunning views, pouring rain and low cloud!

The museum shows the history of the castle with all the battles that took place in that time. Recommend the tour for kids birthdays. Don't miss the Schnitzel in the restaurant!

Apart from Feldkirch's historic town centre the main attraction here is the castle Schattenburg, in an imposing position above the town. It can be reached in a few minutes going up the stairs of the Bettlerstiege, but it can also be approached by car. The well maintained and restored castle, built from the 13th to the 17th century, is now... More

I guess too many people wouldn't go to Feldkirch but if you do, this is a great place to visit. The museum is housed in the original palace which has been very well maintained. it consists of a number of rooms which depict various purposes for the castle inhabitants. There are a number of very old paintings on wood and... More

Other than the architectures in the town, this museum is worth a visit. Information (available) in 4 languages is well organized. Visit takes about 1.5hrs. Tips: if you would like to try the best schnitzel, better reserve in the restaurant (just walk in a bit inside) before you visit the museum.
