This stunning castle is perched on top of an outcropping in a somewhat remote corner of tiny Luxembourg. The village below is nearly as charming though highly tourist-oriented. There are numerous restaurants including some along the river that runs through the village. The castle itself has been restored but there are still some original portions of the structure, as well as plaques describing the different historical eras of the fortress from the Roman times until present. During our visit, there was a also an exhibition of Chagall and Otto Dix sketches on biblical themes, which was excellent. There was also a Renaissance fair at the time of our visit, replete with kitsch items for sale and cheesy knight-impersonators. The experience was akin to a visit to "Medieval Times." This festival is probably great for families with younger children, but a pretty uninteresting experience for couples. Overall, Vianden is very touristy but beautiful and definitely worth a visit if you are in Luxembourg or its vicinity.
