Not the biggest or fanciest Castle, but it is a nicely restored example of mid-evil architecture. Inside there are many rooms restored back to how they would have been in the 1500s as well as the story of the castle with many models showing how it began as a Roman fort and grew with time. This is a must visit if you are in Luxembourg and have not visited Castles before.

A very pretty castle, and it has been nicely restored. The city is charming, and it is worth a visit.

I have the restoration process seen developing in the last decade. Visiting the castle of the Orange family many times now.

The castle is situated above the city of Vianden. A quit steep path is leading to the castle. A tour takes you approximately 1.5 hour. It gives you a very good flavor of the foreign times.


In the years to come I will visit Vianden castle more often as it surprises everytime.

Take the chairlift and the zig zag path through the woods to the castle. Both are free with a luxembourg card. Restored castle with good displays and views

We liked the to be able to walk at our own pace and read the information in all the rooms. It is very informal and there is very little you can't explore. To read about how it was in almost complete ruin and then rebuilt to look like it did in its glory years is a tribute to the country caring about its heritage. there are several ways to get to the Chateau but all involve walking. The one we took is the chairlift up from the city, with a hike through the forest on a very rustic trail to the Chateau. The only thing I wish they would have had was more English information on the history of the Chateau. But is was a very interesting visit. I would plan about half a day to really explore and examine the Chateau and another hour to get up there and take the chairlift.
