Wulff Castle, Vina del Mar

3.9
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Vina del Mar
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.

  • A recommended quick tour to get a little history and see beautiful landscapes combining sea, city and mountain.

  • If you are just passing by vineyard and go out to walk along the waterfront, don't enter this castle, originally owned by a businessman of German in the area which today belongs to the city and can be visited. Not takes you more than half an hour and leaves you with an idea of the origins of the seaside resort.

  • A postcard in Viña del mar, is beautiful and can be perfectly walked from a central point of the city.

  • Beautiful and free! Very small but if you have free time, there's a small art museum to walk through.
  • Awesome view and it's free to get inside. Really cool place next by the sea
  • Nice place to take some photos and walk around for a bit. On a clear day the views are very nice. Note that the inside will be closed from 1:30-3:00 for lunch.
  • Great place, well maintained with well knowledgable guides.
  • A wooden structure that was built on the rocks, the entrance is free. There is a high place where you can see Valparaiso and Cancun.
