#1 of 18 in Things to do in Liechtenstein
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 long hike leading up to the castle proves to be worthy of the views and the pleasure of serenity. A castle like-no-other. Beautiful.

    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.

    Very nice castle and the view is also nice. We left our car at the parking lot near Rheinpark Stadion. In 10 minutes, you are in the center of Vaduz.

    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.
