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.

You can see Vaduz Castle from any point in Vaduz. It stands imposing over the city and we found it equally picturesque from the banks of the Rhine as it was close up! It is lovely to see it on a sunny day! It’s like...More

Great views of the castle can be seen through out Vaduz but don't bother walking up there as it is a private castle not for public entry.

The views of and from the castle are amazing but you are not able to go inside. It is understandable though since the Prince does reside here. Definitely worth the visit though!

Vaduz Castle overlooks the city magnificently, including being beautifully lit up at night. It's quite a spectacular castle in itself. You can drive up to the castle to look at it. There is a parking area just above it, although the road there is steep,...More

I wasted half a day of my life driving 45 minutes to Vaduz and back and looking for something worth doing. Interesting old castle, but don't be misled into thinking you can get in or even into the grounds. There is nothing else worth doing...More

Very nice castle. You can either walk or drive up to therebut you cannot access the castle. Beautiful setting in the green hillside. You can spend three or five minutes on this attraction. Don't expect this to be an activity that will take a lot...More

Be careful this place can only be enjoyed from the outside. You can also find a little terrace nearby that dominates the whole city of Vaduz.

We walked up from the city through vineyards, passing by nice old houses. There were also some boards telling some background information about Liechtenstein. Also on the path to the castle there is a platform with a nice view over the valley. The castle itself...More

Great view of castle and mountains, could not get into castle which was a disappointment- you get a great view and picture if you walk down the gravel trail to the left looking up from the castle

It is never open to the public, although once a year, 15th of August, during the national holiday there’s a party in the gardens (this is what I was told).
