Wulff Castle, Vina del Mar

(700+ reviews on the web)
Castle
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.

  • The Castle and beautiful and the view of it too. Before you go, check the hours of operation, since the same is open for visits only 10 the 13:30 and the 15:00 to 17:30

  • They had recommended me to visit him at the time of the sunset and the view is really impressive. Highly recommended!

  • Part of the idiosyncrasy of the place, it is worth knowing, very nice view, and much history, to take a sunny day and take pictures, as on a cloudy day. SAlis from there and you can walk along the waterfront.
