“Lovely castle and a nice walkthrough”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

This is a good museum but you REALLY do need a guide to fully explain things, a lovely location and presents a wonderful range of views of the town.

“Beautiful castle”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

We were lucky to have a local guide who told us all about the castle. The views were amazing. A lot of really old furniture that we wanted to touch until I dug out my phrase book- if they had used the word verboten, then I would have understood.

“Great views”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

This is a really good museum but you REALLY do need a guide to fully explain things otherwise it might be really boring if you don't know what you're looking at and will not understand it's significance in Austria's history

“A real castle to walk through!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

This is the real deal - a 900 year old castle in great condition. The museum is worth the small price to pay to walk through history and see how people lived hundreds of years ago. There is a cafe in the courtyard that does not require a fee, but pay the fee and enjoy the castle and keep. This alone is worth the trip to Feldkirch (among many other things).

“Small but satisfying”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

No one should visit Feldkirch without visiting the Schattenburg, the castle that towers over the city. Even the restaurant there is famed for its enormous 30cm wiener schnitzel. The museum was always interesting, what with climbing up and down and through the various rooms, but a recent renovation has made it excellent.

It is small, and limited in what it displays, but it has high quality exhibits, close enough to touch (not behind glass), and nicely placed in the rooms. I would go there before or after lunch (it closes at noon for a couple of hours) and take in the schnitzel in the dining area. Of course, it has great views of the countryside as well.
