About
The Liechtenstein Castle, situated on the southern edge of the Vienna Woods, family seat of the Prince of Liechtenstein, is not a museum in the traditional sense, but a while steeped in history, but also very lively place, which annually attracts thousands of visitors from around the world. In addition to substantial parts of the Romanesque castle from the year 1130 to make numerous pieces of furniture, such as weapons, furniture and beamed ceiling, reliefs and the chapel, as well as one of the most beautiful views over Vienna, the castle, to a year-round attractive cultural institution. The present castle was built in 19th Century restored house of Liechtenstein and is still located in their property. She served nearly 200 years (1130-1295) as a temporary residence of the family, and embodies a family history 900 years. Moreover, it has in the last decades of the 19th century, beginning of the 20th century served as a museum of the Castle family. We are looking forward to your visit!

Due to lock down have passed by this great castle as it is not far and i often walk this route. The castle itself was closed due to the lock down. Was very impressive this cold day, from far looks small but is actually very big and high and you can see it from different angles. It is a great walk through the forest to the town and you nice views of it. It is on the top of hill and there is a parking close by. It is about 30 minutes drive from Vienna. There are some dog an children playgrounds around as well place to rest.

Great looking castle which you can not fully see from the street but there is a nice free parking close by and then a short walk through the street or forest it is a great site to see, you can only enter when there are tours which are very rare in winter but otherwise there are several per day.
But from outside is a great sight, the whole area and forest is great for walking and well marked and more things to ser

We can talk a lot about this place, but on thing is sure! You will deal with a castle jumped out of a fairytale! So, there is a truth why Peter Jackson has directed a few images from the first piece of the Lord of the Rings trilogy!!!!

Not the easiest place to get to, but is is well worth the effort especially if you are driving. The castle has easy parking and the castle is just a short walk from the parking lot. make sure you take the trail tothe catle instead of the street. The trail is an easier walk and closeraccess to the castle.

If you aren't driving yourself, getting here can be a slight challenge, but I found it well worth the effort.

First some notes about getting there on public transport... feel free to skip to the next paragraph if you don't need this particular information. Just outside the Vienna travel zone, it requires a ticket apart from the normal Vienna 24-hour (etc) public transport tickets. (My day ticket for this cost 10.40 Euros to take the S train to Modling Station, which also includes a return the same day to any central Vienna station. I left from Meidling and returned to Mitte, for example) The train takes roughly 30 minutes depending on exactly which Vienna station you use. From Modling, there is a bus towards the castle, but the times are pretty infrequent, so I just opted to walk the entire way... around 4km according to Google maps. About half this is walking through or around town, and the second half is along Johanesstrasse. It's mostly uphill, but not too steep for the most part. It took me about 45 minutes start to finish. One thing I learned upon leaving, is that the walking route on Google maps is still geared towards cars and actually takes you toward the car park which is unnecessary and adds just under 10 minutes to the walk. After leaving town on Johanesstrasse, the foot path will only be on the right hand side of the road. You will eventually see a bus stop across the road with a cross walk. Two small side streets will also form an intersection here on the side of the road you're walking on. Take the crosswalk and follow the footpath away from the road past the bus stop (Google will show this as a dead end side street), which actually continues to loop directly to the castle and save the steepest part of the road and then the driveway to the parking area. It also shaves a good 7 minutes off the "recommended" walking route!

Anyway, the castle! They offer guided tours each hour for 10 Euros. (It is also free with the Vienna Pass, and the only way I learned about this place to begin with.) The tours are in German, but the guide will also do and English summary at the end of each talking point. The castle and its history are very interesting and the tour is extremely informative, even if you only get the English bits. Because it is still considered a royal residence, photos of the interiors are not allowed, but you can take some impressive pictures from a couple balconies along the tour route. The views from the castle are stunning and on good days you can see all of Vienna and its skyline spread beneath you.

If you find yourself with some extra time, this is a very nice break from the city crowds, and definitely worth a visit!

If you go to this place by car it’s ok, but if you want to “save the planet” and go by public transportation, well, it’s like a “Camel Trophy”! The bus from the train station of Moedling is 262 and is not so frequent. But there are two routes of 262 and unfortunately we took the bus that it takes more than a kilometer to get to the castle from the bus stop. Well, the castle outside is very beautiful, but you can visit only a little part. The guided tour is in german and english, 10 euro admission. For me not a good idea to visit, there are other castles outside Vienna more interesting easy to reach.

Not far drive from Vienna and 3 minutes away from Seegrotte caves, we done both these attractions on our way from Graz to Vienna, which makes for a perfect half day tour.
Huge free parking area which is around 5 minutes walk from the castle, on route you will admire the park, maybe not so much the retirement home, but there's an outdoor area that houses individual artefacts and statues but we're not too sure of their representation.
After a short stroll you encounter the castle before your eyes, and just before the entrance is the best place for pictures as inside the castle pics are not allowed and within the grounds you're too close and can't get the summary in one shot. Admission is 10 euros each person but the visit can only be concluded with a guide, that runs the tour every hour and lasts about 50-55 minutes. A guide is mandatory as many areas in the castle are out of bounds, but our guide speaking English was a great bonus for us. The castle is part of the Liechtenstein family passed down in generations. The Prince of Liechtenstein currently resides in Vaduz with his family, so now the castle is mostly used for tourism, functions and other elaborate events. There are some original pieces inside the castle, but after destruction the castle was rebuilt two centuries ago. As I mentioned before no photos allowed inside the castle but many great snaps can be captured in and around the grounds. Overall a great tour and doesn't suck to much time out of your day...

Ever seen a true Castle? Go somewhere.
But Burg Liechtenstein just a few minutes from Vienna is even better.

Such an incredible castle! Mix of the original 12th century castle and restoration from the 19th century. Tour guide was so informative and passionate. Unfortunately the cloudy winter season didn't allow for us to see the incredible views from the balconies, but still an amazing experience!!
