Wulff Castle, Vina del Mar

3.9
#2 of 22 in Historic Sites in Valparaiso Region
Castle Tourist Spot
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 »
  • This place is free to enter and is pretty nice. The views of the coastline are beautiful and you've got some nice waves smashing into the castles wall. Great spot to relax  more »
  • It looks lovely from a distance, but the paint is coming of the outside walls. It is not a very special castle.  more »
