Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

We climbed the path up to the hill on the rainy day. Remember to use good shoes because the path sometimes bumpy. There are some information board every couple meters along the way and its really useful to read. The problem is we cannot enter the castle because the Prince still lived there. But still, the surrounding area is good for taking pictures also.

Although, you can not go into the castle as the Prince and his family live there it is very impressive sight from Vaduz. It overlooks the city. We did walk past the castle which as said previously is very impressive and a very steep walk up there, be warned!

take a walk (30 mins) up a narrow path to the castle for the views and to get up close not much else to see. The town is expensive: 5 Swiss franks for a coke and they charge you 3 Swiss francs to stamp your passport !

Beautiful scenery. Hike not strenuous...take a walk through the vineyards. People very friendly. If you are traveling from Switzerland and want a peaceful place to spend a night or two, try Vaduz.
