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.

Incredibly clean and well maintained as everything in Liechtenstein, I was positively impressed to find opened after dark the door that takes you to the courtyard, too pity that the lights were not working o not on. The surroundings of the castle are also beautiful and worth exploring.
Google maps said it was open (in the winter), but only the outer courtyard is open. Still was worth the visit, the scenery, and great views.
