“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

The chairlift was closed and will reopen in April. However we had previously visited in May and it is well worth a visit. There is a café at the top where one can get drinks/food. But the views of the castle and the town down in the valley are spectacular. There is also a footpath for those who are energetic!

“A fun way to view the castle and the river township”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Very reasonably priced, no fuss way to see the spectacular scenery. Restaurant at the top and bottom. Very basic open air chairlift, so I would recommend rugging up if you go in the colder months.

“Calm Ride. Nice View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The ride on the chairlift was very calm and the staff at either end of the chairlift were very helpful.
The views from the top of the hill were nice but the venue at the top was rather average - nothing to get excited about.
The view of the Vianden Castle is "different" but not the best view from a photographer's point of view.
The price of the ride up and down is not prohibitive so give it a go.
If you have time it would be worth catching the chairlift up and walking down.

“Good Experience - Great Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

The Vianden Chairlift was a nice way to end our time exploring this lovely town. The peaceful journey over the river and above the trees was great for taking photos of the views, but beware, once at the top there isn't much to do and on the afternoon we went the restaurant was closed.

“A great view of Vianden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We found the chairlift on our last morning in Vianden, which was a rather cold and grey day. Nonetheless the views were wonderful and it was good value.
