Wulff Castle, Vina del Mar
(4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
A stone, medieval-style castle built right on the shores of the Pacific Ocean, Wulff Castle pairs striking architecture with scenic surroundings. The castle was built in 1906 as a private project for German businessman and philanthropist, Gustavo Adolfo Wulff Mowte. In the years following Wulff’s death, the castle has hosted many institutions, such as a maritime museum, a library museum, a sea culture museum, and municipal offices; today it is a national historical monument. Many visitors are drawn to the site for the backdrop it provides for coastal photos. You’ll get the best views from the lookout point next to the castle. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Vina del Mar holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Wulff Castle and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Special ride to learn a little of the history of our Earth. A museum armed so you can see replicas of ships and frigates to scale. Cuadtos and other elements of the 19th century. Lovely walk and beautiful view.

  • Beautiful location. In front of the boardwalk in seaside. It was closed to visitations in November 2016, but you can take great pictures on the outside. It's worth it.
