“nice view but nothing to do on the hill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

The trip up and back down is really nice. once on the hill there is a small café with quite high prices but ok products.
There is nothing else to do on the hill and not indication of the pathway down so I took the chairlift down again.
Safety is a main concern for this type of attractions, the safety system seems to be a bit outdated but still good enough.

“If it is a nice day it is stunning”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

We enjoyed our trip on this, the views are stunning and worth it for that if nothing else. The café has reasonably priced meals which are of decent quality.

Two things spoilt it
50c to go to the toilet when you are already paying for the chairlift and a meal/drink is ridiculous it should be free.

The exit to descend on the chairlift is not very well marked and we walked up and down a series of stairs before discovering the entrance was through an area near the café which has a barrier across it.

“Nice Views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

We visited Vianden in May and decided too take the chairlift up the mountain and than walk the castle. Big mistake. They do not tell you that when you get to the top you either have to walk down a very hazarders hill which is very steep or you can take the long way around which is about 45min walk. There are no signs telling you if you are going in the right direction or even to ell you which way you need to go. If you are senior or someone with poor mobility I would recommend you take the long way around. You will pass an advantage park on he way.

The ride up proved you with nice views of Vianden; once at the top the views where more spectacle.

“Nice relaxing afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We decided to take a ride on the Chairlift around 3;30 pm, when we got to the top we sat on the terrace ordered a beer and chilled out, we spent over an hour just looking at the wonderful scenery.
