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.

If you are in Vianden, you should visit the Castle. It's an interesting place with a very nice view from the village.

My daughter and I were backpacking in Europe and decided to go from Luxemburg City to Vianden. We walked from the bus stop down by the bridge, up the very steep cobbled-stoned road to get to Viandens Castle. We were the only people walking through the place at the time so it was quite eerie but utterly spectacular. There are many castles dotted around Europe and this is another place that is well worth a visit. Luxemburg itself is a small country but it is stunning.

Went up to the Chateau via the chair lift , once we reached and entered the chateau it is full of history, the rooms are laid out has they would have been in the roman times. The restoration has been of a good standard , there is plenty to see and is very interesting .

We wanted to kill some time before we went into Luxemburg City for a bike tour. We spent about 1-1.5 hours walking around and learning about this castle, I mean, chateau :)

The castle was destroyed more than 100 years ago by people salvaging the stones. They decided to rebuild the castle in the 70s and have done a great job. The castle is quite impressive and the surrounding countryside is quite beautiful.

Even our teenagers agreed and gave the site a thumbs up!
