Managed to get ourselves here via public transport and what an idyllic setting. Unfortunately the friend who I went with didn't want to chance the snowy path due to a bad leg but I walked down to get a photo and it just opens up with paths every wayi to woodland walks. So wish we could have done some exploring.

We went during the off season and were able to get a private tour. The price is affordable and worth it. We came on public transport and it was easy. The grounds on this castle are beautiful so pack a lunch and bring a bottle of wine to enjoy after the tour.

This is a very old castle located in the town of Modling which is accessible as a day trip from Vienna. There are gypsum underground mines near by and one can combine these two spots together. From the main road one should take a pebble path for a scenic view while ascending this castle. Nearby is a hotel where one... More

The guide was a nice guy, he even did a bi-language tour of the castle even though we were only 2 foreigners in the group but the inside of the castle felt extremely boring with little to almost no furniture or accessories to see. It would have been more interesting if you would be left on own to "discover" the... More

This is an easy and pleasant day trip out of Vienna. Easily combined with the See Grotte underground mine. We did both by catching the train to Modling. About a 1/2 hour trip and then using the local buses, which you can take from outside the train station. To get to the castle, take the 262 bus in direction of... More

Burg Liechtenstein is a real medieval castle, built about 1000 years ago. It is small but still beautiful and fascinating. The tour is interesting and informative. However, it is best described as the mansion or manor house of a wealthy family rather than a keep, more a medieval Downton Abbey than a Winterfell. The partial fortifications are actually more decorative,... More

I visited MANY palaces/castles here in vienna, but this is by far my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE! The tour is about 50 minutes and you must take a tour to enter the castle. The amazing thing about this castle is that 70-80% of it is still preserved from the 12th century. They had very few renovations throughout the years. Each room was... More

I love castles but this has just made my top 5. Based in a very nice area called Mödling, we discovered this late on our trip and so happy we did. Beautiful with lots of history. The guided tour lasted about 50 mins and was expertly done by Sebastian who spoke to both German and English speaking tourists with passion... More

Several floors available for paid fun In the castle there is one of Europe's oldest chapels. A small gift shop, as well as coffee, water and ice cream.The only nedostatok - not easily accessible by public... More

Very nice guided tour. Me and my husband went with two children, 5 and 13 years old. Everybody had a good time. The guide talked both German and English.
