“Zip line!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

The zip line attraction was wonderful.The hike up was long but beautiful and after spending two weeks in this region, I was used to the steep terrain. The price was low, the training was great and my 6 year old nephew enjoyed it as much as my brother and I (in our 40's). The course offered many different levels of difficulty and people of all ages, shapes and sizes were zipping around and squealing and screaming. It was nice to spend some time not shopping or learning history (as vacuous as that sounds).

“Restored Castle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

The highlight of the town. If you are in Vianden, you are probably here to see the castle. It's pretty much what you expect.

“Tour Childhood Dream True”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

It may be not the biggest castle in Europe (but it is really big), but with its setting up the rock and its layering of different centuries it gives you feeling that you enter a fairy tale. You are surrounded with a fabulous construction that merges with the rock. The chapel and the big gallery with the stunning view are the highlights. The interior is a bit empty, but you may consider it is a plus, living you free to imagine any epoch that is your favorite - from Romans to early XIX century. The castle just inspires you, it does not give you distinctive images, it is just a sketch, a monumental structure you run your imagination around. We liked it.

The town below the castle is charming, and with plenty of restaurants, too.
