Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Liechtenstein  /  Vaduz  /  Vaduz Castle

Vaduz Castle, Vaduz

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.

  • Indeed, the building is impressive. The view is magnificent and s extends to the horizon. As stated, no visit is possible, the man still lives inside, what may seem traditional in a society as modern as the Lichtenstein...

  • Walk of about 20 minutes from the city centre. Come on look at the Castle. Nice (i.e. boh, I think), but I can't get into it. I try with a Serenade to the Prince (or re? well, that that is), but he does not answer. With a heavy heart to regret going back to the Center, at least I got firm buttocks.

  • The views of Liechtenstein from the castle are amazing. Even if you can't manage the steep hill to the top, there are many viewpoints on the way - all with stunning views! A must do.  more »

  • A beautiful castle and beautiful surroundings. Nice view of Vaduz, free parking. However, it is not possible to enter the castle because it is inhabited by the ruling prince (Hans-Adam II, Prince of Liechtenstein).
  • You have to see this place, if in Europe. The prince still lives here. Well guarded castle with no restrictions to see around. Toilets are available and also adequate free parking. Don't forget your 📷.
  • Beautiful view of Vaduz. You can't go inside the castle as the royal family still lives there. Pleasant walk up from the town, with history and information about the country along the way.
  • Lovely castle and views, parking available for free just up the round or you can walk up from the town. You can’t go into the castle but it’s really not far out of the way to come see it.
  • Gorgeous little country. Such a healthy atmosphere (both literally and metaphorically)
