Castle Historic Site
Transport yourself centuries back in time at Chateau de Vianden, a medieval fortress and palace dating back to the 14th century. Before you enter, notice the guard towers--one white and one black--flanking the main structure. Walk through a total of five gates, including a drawbridge and a descending grid. Afterward, you'll come to the little palace, where you can see the armory and Byzantine hall with its beautiful trefoil windows. Next, find the great palace, the largest section of the castle, featuring a knights' hall. Perhaps the most significant section, however, is the Romanesque-style chapel, which boasts two floors with an opening in the middle and balconies for the nobles.

  • Beautiful castle! It is high on a mountain, if you come from the village of Vianden is a climb to the top. Parking is there, but hard to find if it is very busy. At the time of our visit there were medieval festivals. This made the experience complete, ideal if you want to visit this castle with children. Beautiful view, you can easily spend a day here entertain you.

Where to stay in Vianden

Visitors to picturesque Vianden are mostly served by somewhat pricey hotels full of character and history. Steeped in tradition, many of the places have been in the same family for several generation. Since the cost of accommodations in the city varies little, spoil yourself by finding a room on the peaceful Our River, which cuts through the center of town.
