Vianden Castle towering over the River Our

Vianden is an almost impossibly picturesque town in Luxembourg.

Get in[edit]

From Luxembourg City, take a train to Ettelbruck, and then jump on the 570 bus ( the bus station is next to the train station ). Vianden is the second to last stop on the route - ask the driver if unsure.

The whole journey from Luxembourg City takes around an hour, and costs 4 Euros for a return ticket(bus included).

It is also possible to catch a bus from the German city of Bitburg.

Get around[edit]

See[edit][add listing]

Vianden Castle. Every year, in the months of july/august rich cultural program, held over 10 days - fencing, medieval music, smiths and other crafts. http://www.castle-vianden.lu/festivalhistorique/index.html

There is also a museum to Victor Hugo, who stayed in the town several times.

Do[edit][add listing]

Besides the castle tour, there is also a chairlift up to a scenic view, a swimming pool, and a zipline.

The Ancien Cinema, in addition to serving drinks and desserts, shows a variety of movies and houses a number of books on various aspects of the film industry.

Indian Forest Adventure Park is located near the castle, and can be reached either on foot (there are clear signs near the path to the castle) or by taking the chairlift and walking downhill. They offer a range of courses at different difficulty levels. English-language instruction/introduction is available, but limited.
