Vianden Castle, Vianden

Transport yourself centuries back in time at Vianden Castle, 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.

  • Nice medieval yet fully renovated castle. It's must see once if you live in Luxembourg but don't with big expectations from this castle, it's has a few things to see inside such as old dining rooms and some old carpets. The scenery is very nice, if you have the chance to visit on a sunny day.
  • A wonderful castle built atop a hill with a vary steeped (no pun intended) history. The castle was largely rebuilt from 1978 from mere ruins. Exploring the numerous areas of the castle is very easy with the well numbered pathway system and issued printed map guide.
