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.

  • Castle is fairly small, and is not for sightseeing. This is actually the house of the prince/ruler of Liechtenstein, and does not have tours.

  • The private residence of the Prince of Liechtenstein, the castle sits on top of a hill overlooking Vaduz. To reach the castle, you'll need to hike for about 30 minutes from the Vaduz city centre. The hike is quite easy, with signboards along the way telling you the story of Liechtenstein. The view gets better as you reach the top too, with a great view of Vaduz and the surrounding mountains. While you cannot enter the castle, the scenery offers a lot of great photo opportunity. As this is an outdoor activity, be sure to wear appropriate clothing and check the weather before proceeding.
  • Gorgeous location to take pics. The view around the castle is awesome. Could not visit due to construction and I don't think anyone can visit this castle. Worth going up the hill. Highly recommend it if you are in the area. Parking nearby is free. Free restroom right by free parking, too.
