Chateau de Vianden, Vianden

4.8
#1 of 7 in Things to do in Vianden
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.

  • This chateau was completely destroyed but has been renovated to an exquisite standard. You can get an audio guide for 2 euros and its well worth it. The interior of the chateau is brilliant.  more »

  • The lock in Vianden is a really really nice Castle in a beautiful environment. You get a good impression of life in the lock and the way of Defense. As a bonus the beautiful views over the Valley is something you must see if you visit the area

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.
