Wulff Castle, Vina del Mar

(4/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • This is one of 3 castles in Vina del Mar which were owned by rich families in the past, back in the past when the area was mainly farming land.  more »
  • To get some good pictures, not much more. You can get foot from the flower clock. View interesting from the costanera. Is cute see break the waves on the rocks. Not it has long been the visit.
