The castle is closed to visitors, but you can walk from the main street of Vaduz up to the castle along the Princess Gardens.

  • The castle is visible from many places in the capital of Liechtenstein. During a visit to Vaduz definitely worth a look.

  • Great experience. You can't go inside, but you can walk right up next to a royal castle without anyone bothering you or any lines! Some of the views along the walk to the top are excellent. I got my b...  more »
  • It cannot be visited, but seen from the center of Vaduz. If you like mountain and nature can be found the "Heidi village" there is a mountain route that comes out we say, from the village where Heidi spent the winter (you can visit the House with details from the basket that the grandfather had until Clara Chair) and goes up the mountain where the House is such which appeared in drawings that turns out to be a bar. A route very bearable family, you can even barbeques by the road, and the barecito up a puntazo. The wonderful views. Really, it's like reviving the series. And they enjoy enormously the nature.

  • 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.
