Explore Vianden Castle, one of the most beautiful and impressive castles in Europe, which delights with its majestic setting, excellent state of preservation and history.

Vianden Castle is a real magnet for visitors, being one of the biggest and most beautiful feudal residences from the Romanesque and Gothic periods. The castle was built between the 11th and 14th century on the foundations of a Roman castle and a Carolingian refuge and for a long time belonged to the Grand Ducal family, before passing into state ownership in 1977. Since then it has been restored to all its former glory. Today, Vianden Castle is one of Europe’s leading historical monuments. There is a modern, interactive visitor centre in the entrance area.

The medieval festival in summer has become an annual highlight at Vianden Castle. During this time, visitors can discover a colourful medieval animation with battle demonstrations, musicians, fire artists, jugglers, minstrels, bird of prey displays, calligraphy demonstrations and much more.
 

The LuxembourgCard is not valid during the Medieval Festival.

Floating on a journey through time

The Good Life

A ride on the chairlift in Vianden is like travelling back in time. Slowly floating, gently swaying, machinery softly rattling. At the top, visitors can enjoy a spectacular view of the town and castle.
