  • breathtaking views! too bad the castle is inaccessible for tourist but either way worth the treck! this small country has few small surprises that everyone must see!  more »
  • It's a huge Castle, on a high cliff above the city, but unfortunately the private, so inside you. However, there is a nice view, and it's worth the little walk.

  • We were only in passing and we surprised the Castle located on top of a mountain. I guess you must have a spectacular view from all 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.
  • 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.
