Chateau de Vianden, Vianden

(4.5/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Bed in a grandiose site, like most of the fortresses in Luxembourg, this castle in ruins here a few decades has been well restored maximally avoiding "systematic concreting" which is often practiced in this region. The tour is very interesting and made the comments the good audioguide, although it can be seen that there are still many unknowns about the initial use of the parts of the Castle. Probably the visit n ° 1 to the Luxembourg.
