There were quite a few wealthy people living in Vina del Mar at the beginning of the 20th century. Gustavo Wulff was a very successful trador both in saltpeter and coal. He migrated to Chile in 1881 and made his fortune. He was from Germany and he wanted his own castle. He hired an architect to do so. It went through several additions even including a bridge between towers. When Herr Wulff died, his daughter made some additional changes after World War II. She used the same architect to do so. The government eventually acquired the property and in 1995, it was pronounced a National Historical Monument by Chilean Law. There is a small museum there now which probably is not worth your time. This is a very nice photo opportunity though!

If this is on your walk, and it happens to be open (random times?) it’s worth stopping in. It’s free to enter, and photos were ok at the time of my visit. The areas within the castle that one can visit are very limited. The real attraction is the artwork inside, and the video playing that gives more historical information. I’m sure the art rotates throughout the year, but it was fantastic work during my visit.

Wulff Castle looks unique in Valparaíso. It is an early 20th-century mansion built by a German trader. It offers cultural exhibits & ocean views. Certainly worth visiting.
