Discover the centuries-old tradition and history of the Liechtenstein Princely family at Vaduz Castle. The official residence of the Prince of Liechtenstein, the castle sits on a hillside 120 m (394 ft) above the town. The previous owners, the Counts of Werdenberg-Sargans, presumably built it as a fortress in the 12th century. The castle is closed to visitors, but you can walk from the main street of Vaduz up to the castle along the Princess Gardens. Or take a guided tour of Vaduz, learn how the castle came into the ownership of the Princely family, and hear what role Napoleon played in the country's history.

  • Although it is a country unknown by the vast majority, it is worth spending an afternoon, or a weekend on it and enjoy the beautiful landscape that surrounds the Vaduz Castle, main attraction of the capital of Liechteinstein. In the city centre, there are charming bars and restaurants, where it's worth a stop for a meal, coffee or just a drink enjoying the landscape and the movement. The downside is the price, due to the high cost of living in the region and the local currency (CHF). The houses and apartments to a postcard landscape. Sometimes you think you are not real houses.

  • I have seen so many beautiful castles, but this doesn't impress much. Can be seen from anywhere in town, but cannot be visited

  • We went to Vaduz just to see the Castle, unfortunately with surprise we found that it is not possible to visit it, shame because it is the only attraction that pass for Liechtenstein and Vaduz, but otherwise there is nothing worth seeing ... ... pull it straight!

  • Of course its well maintained because it is the residence if the prince. But you have to be some sort of government official with an invitation to go inside. If you visit it: a couple of meters next to the castle there is a viewpoint where you can see vaduz from above.
  • A great place to have visited. The castle is beautifully illuminated during night and the hilltop is a good viewing point to look over the capitol Vaduz. Nice to see that it is still in use as a private residence. It connects to many historical events.
  • Calm area, nice castle, but you can't enter. It's a good place to visit if you are already in the area for the museums that are within walking distance.
  • Very interesting and amiable site, quiet and accessible from Trisenberg by forest road , 40 mins on foot.
  • The castle is beautiful, but it is actually the Prince's residence, so all you get to see is the outside. Very picturesque, but not a very exciting stop
