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.

  • In itself beautiful castle but unfortunately closed to the public. Despite this, the Castle attracts relatively many visitors (which all at the entrance for the first time behind seem to come that it is not accessible!). Also the large amount of parkeerpaatsen does not seem consistent with an attraction that was never open to the public ...

  • Vaduzský castle towers over the capital and access to it is for pedestrians and the car. Exteriors are picturesque and the interiors are closed for visitors.

  • As many have pointed out, the castle is private property, so all we could see was to take a peek from the gate. The view is nice, but for the view, there are so many other great viewpoints. The parkin...  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.
