“Impressive Castle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

This beautiful castle (Chateau) is a must for visitors to Luxembourg. The receptionist at our hotel in Luxembourg recommended it and we are glad she did - a beautiful place.
The castle sits high on hill over looking the riverside town of Vianden (a quait little town in its own right).
Touring the castle is effortless and the views from various vantage points inside the castle are lovely.
Make sure you make the effort to get to Vianden and check out this imposing building.

“Fantastic Views and Graet Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

We went by bus to Vianden, then walked a little way to the chair lift and went one way only to the hilltop. Stopped for coffee and cake and photos then walked down to the castle. Bought the audio guide for 2€, you only need one between two because it is loud enough for both to hear it. Excellent audio guide. Vianden was excellent.

“VIANDEN CASTLE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

This castle is sat on the foundations of a Roman Fort which fell into disrepair until renovation commenced in 1977 into its former glory. This is in a stunning location and well worth a visit. We visited in September which was quite but in high season parking would be a problem. We managed to park quite close and is a short walk to the castle. It has fantastic views over Vianden. The town itself is also well worth visiting.

“Stunning Castle in a Picturesque Village”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

A reasonably short train and bus ride away from the capital, Vianden is a great place for a daytrip (despite being a bit touristy) and the castle itself is stunning. Having been very extensively restored, the castle seems almost disneylike in quality. With squeaky clean (mostly empty) interiors, some imagination is required to make sense of it all. The artifacts and armor it does contain have no english explanations, so you may want to find some accompanying literature to enhance your experience. Despite this, the place is very beautiful and is particularly fantastic when you take the chair lift up to the summit of the hill and have a leisurely walk down to the castle.

“Excellent castle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

I visited the castle once before it was renovated and it was much more authentic back then. Now, it is renovated and the new, renovated part takes away part of the lovely view over the city of Vianden. The interior of the castle, however, has become lovely!
