See the medieval Gutenberg Castle, where archeological digs have uncovered the 12 cm (5 in) Mars von Gutenberg figurine. The hillside has been inhabited since the Neolithic period. The castle is perched on a hill about 70 m (230 ft) above the nearby village. Park at the foot of the hill, and climb a path that leads through vineyards up to the castle. The short walk provides views of the neighboring countryside and castle ruins. You can visit the castle's chapel and its rose garden. The bailey is open throughout the year, but the castle interior is closed for visitors. Guided tours need to be scheduled in advance.

  • The castle had an unimpeded and breathtaking view of Liechtenstein. There is a small cafe at the foot of the climb, it serves coffee, beer and gelatos. Along the path is a tiny patch vineyard...

  • Beautiful castle. So nice to put ourselves closer to history by enjoying these moments in places with so much known history. We walked around and we could get in because we went really early but the view was beautiful and everything there was so nice, the little walk to get in top of the mountain. Lots of wild animals. The church next to it with the songs from the bell. So nice.
  • Went up to the castle and it was completely isolated, I got to climb up on the walls and take beautiful pictures of the castle and the countryside. And completely free! Well worth it.
