brief description: 

Known for its impressive castle, which is one of the largest and most beautiful fortified castles west of the Rhine river, and for its scenic location in the Our Valley, Vianden is among Luxembourg`s main tourist attractions. At all times of the year, large numbers of visitors succumb to the charm of this small medieval town, embedded in the splendid landscape of the Ardennes. A cobblestone road slowly meanders down to the bottom of the valley and wanders past one historic weathered facade after another, before reaching the heart of town. The ancient market place, surrounded by hotels, stores and a church, awaits with a wonderful ambiance. Narrow lanes and alleyways lead to lovely nooks and crannies and picturesque backyards. The overall impression is that of an authentic historic location with a remarkable absence of any considerable contemporary influence. Public parking available. Excellent infrastructure, hotels, restaurants, etc.
