The chair lift is close to the centre of Vianden and takes you over the houses and river before climbing high and above the castle. At the top there is a nice viewing area to take in the views of Vianden below and the beautiful...More

We thought we were being smart taking the chairlift to the castle but it was a .4 km walk down to the castle on a dirt path. Sure the view from the lift is good but... Unless you’re just riding up and down don’t get...More

The chairlift is about 400 meters from the chateau (rather steep downhill) and probably the best way to access the chateau. The alternatives being walking or finding parking nearby.

This isn't a very steep lift but worth it when you get to the top where you can have a drink and sit and admire the lovely view.

Thoroughly recommend taking the chairlift up to the castle. Obviously saves you a tiring walk and the views are amazing. Be warned that there is a slightly tricky walk though the forest once you get to the top and head for the castle.

The Vianden Chairlift is definitely worth travelling on, at least one way. The views are terrific and the cafe at the top is great for a meal stop. It's only a short walk to the Castle below.

The Vianden chairlift takes you to a hilltop beside the Vianden castle. From this point, the castle is a 15 mnutes walk. Through there is a path to reach the castle on foot, I think the chairlift route gives you the best views. It is...More

About 4 or 5 Euros. We got on free because we had a Luxembourg Card - well worth buying if you are there for a few days.
