On European Heritage Day 2012, the National
Archeological and National Cultural Heritage
authorities have interesting things to tell about
the legendary «Wildschloss».
The ruined castle of Schalun lies to the north-east
of Vaduz at a height of 862 m above sea-level.
It was probably built towards the end of the
12th c. and destroyed in the early years of the
14th c. After the last archeological dig, the
monument had to be cleaned up and protected
with a great deal of concrete in several stages
between 1990 and 1993.
Guided tours at 1.00, 2.00 and 3.00 p.m.
by Patrik Birrer and Hansjörg Frommelt.
