Wulff Castle, 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. Planning Vina del Mar trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • Worth a picture. It is possible to climb the towers and have another angle to photograph Vina and Valparaíso, farther. You can view marine access as Grebes and pelicans or sea lions.

  • On the day we went was closed. On the outside I thought reasonable. The entry was a nasty smell of urine and dirty. Who is visiting by car, I suggest leaving the vehicle in the parking lot in front of the clock and go walking down there.

  • Not recommend or desrecomendo, is a common seaside Castle. Interesting to take a walk on the Boardwalk.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The castle art museum was closed but the day was simply beautiful so being outside enjoying the views was just as relaxing.
  • Nice architecture, historic place and good photos but very quick tour inside the castle
  • Wulff castle very historic educational and a beautiful touristic site
