A pity it's closed in winter, but the castle is also accessible on foot, either you park your car downtown, or up there (free parking available at Rue de Diekirch).

Visited Vianden as I love visiting Castles and decided to take the chairlift up the hill and then walk down to the castle. The views are definitely spectacular but the ride up is not for the faint-hearted. The chairs are open and just a bar across your waist protects you. The operator of the chairlift certainly is not tourist friendly.... More

What a fantastic way to get to the chateau. The views are spectacular and give you a great perspective of the town of Vianden, the river valley and the chateau itself. Get a one way ticket; you can ride up, walk down to visit the chateau then continue down the hill on foot checking out the quaint streets as you... More

Denise and I stopped to visit the Castle in Vianden and she suggested we ride the chairlift to the top and not walk up. This was a great idea but then you have to take the trail down which is a 15 to 20 minute walk down a winding trail filled with rocks. You can walk back up and take... More

The chairlift is situated just a few minutes walk from the centre of Vianden. Very reasonably priced at 5.10 euros for a return journey though it is possible to walk down. It is a very peaceful glide over the trees which takes about 10 minutes and at the top there is a chalet serving drinks and snacks and of course... More
