Vaduz Off The Beaten Path: 3 reviews and 4 photos
Vaduz Castle is the city's main attraction, but it's so far out of town that it ends up being off the beaten path. The most comfortable way to get there is by car, although it's possible to walk there from the city.
The castle is a medieval fortress. The original building dates back to the 12th century, but only parts of the original plan is intact since the Swiss, during the Swabian War of 1499, set it to flames. The round tower, which is the most prominent part of the building that you can admire from the road, was built right after the fire.
In 1712 the Princes of Liechtenstein took possession of the castle and started restoring it. Today it is the home of the Princely Family - and for this reason it's closed to the public.
