  • Went this time around because I pass when it passed two years ago by a small country will be very small. Castle better it looks cool, but not less as a tourist element.

  • The heading sat actually do everything: it winds drive a narrow road high. A parking lot is slightly above from the Castle. It runs a few metres, stands before the solid imposing Castle - and that was it then as well. The Prince stop still lives there, and since you can't him blame it somehow also, that sorry, let Castle, not crowds of visitors in the House. The great views of Vaduz and the Rhine Valley compensated a bit...

  • We spent some nice time in Vaduz and decided to visit the castle as well. The castle can be seen from many parts of Liechtenstein and even from neighbouring Switzerland. But it is still nice to view it from as close as you can get. We were with car and it was nice drive up to the castle. Amazing place with rich history.
  • Vaduz is a quaint city and perfect for a nice stretch of the legs. Plenty of tourist shops and cafes in the main strip but I highly recommend escaping these and going for a walk around the city. The red house is in walking distance and all houses are kept in immaculate condition. At the top of the hill you'll find the castle and feel free to take an apple from the trees growing in the public grounds
  • Very nice castle, but you won't get inside. It is only worth to visit when you are around, but I would not recommend it as a primary destination of a day trip. Surrounding is well maintained with park opened, so you have a picnic there. Nothing else but nice views to Swiss Alps.
  • 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.
  • 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.
