Castle Tourist Spot
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.

  • Great views of the castle can be seen through out Vaduz but don't bother walking up there as it is a private castle not for public entry.  more »
  • The views of and from the castle are amazing but you are not able to go inside. It is understandable though since the Prince does reside here. Definitely worth the visit though!  more »
  • Vaduz Castle overlooks the city magnificently, including being beautifully lit up at night. It's quite a spectacular castle in itself. You can drive up to the castle to look at it. There is a parking ...  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, easy to reach. No access to visitors though.
  • 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.
