Vianden Castle - one of the most beautiful castles of Luxembourg is located in the city of Vianden. (GPS Coordinates: 49.934828, 6.202947)
01 The castle was built in the XI-XIV century for the Counts of Vianden, and in 1417 representatives of the Orange-Nassau dynasty inherited the castle of Vianden.
02 But in the 18th century, their residence was transferred to the Netherlands, and the castle gradually began to lose its greatness.
03 During the reign of William I in 1820, the castle was sold in parts to one of the local merchants, as a result of which it was turned into ruins.
04 In 1977, the Grand Duke of Luxembourg transferred the castle to state ownership.
05 It was restored, while maintaining the same historical appearance, and today the castle Vianden belongs to the monuments of the European level.
06 Antique furnishings reign in the castle, wax figures of people who once lived here are present everywhere, in combat armor and fully armed.
07 The castle is open every day and is attracted by the fact that it is located at an altitude of 450 meters and that the only lift in the country delivers tourists.
08 Vianden Castle is one of the most important tourist attractions in Luxembourg, it is visited by many tourists at any time of the year.
42 The castle is quite impressive in size and has impregnable walls and towers. I arrived at a rather unfortunate time, there was an event, because of which there were a lot of people. Tolkuchek was not, but something was closed, but somewhere there was a presentation that simply could not be seen. The castle itself reminded a huge souvenir shop. In the castle there are only a few interesting rooms and halls. From the observation towers offer excellent views. And the views of the castle itself are also great. It can be viewed from different viewing platforms. And for some reason there is no one there, everything is in the castle!
