Be aware that you can only pay with cash! We found this out the hard way. The closest ATM machine is quite far away. So we came back the next day instead.

Although in saying that, the chair lift is a great way of seeing the town. The views are phenomenal. It goes at a nice slow pace and you feel safe the whole time.

There is a snack bar at the top with some beautiful views of the area. It's a great place to stop, get a drink before you go back down.

A lovely activity for a sunny day. We parked on Rue Victor Hugo and we're lucky that the parking was free for one day. The walk to the cable car was easy and the ride up much less wobbly than I expected

We visited Vianden on a sunny Sunday in August. We just about managed to park as the town was very busy, however, the parking was free which was a bonus. There was a bit of a queue for the chairlift and we had to wait about 20 minutes before we could get on.
Having researched prices in advance we chose to buy a Luxembourg Card for the day. This cost €28 for the whole family (2 adults and two children). This covered the cost of the chair lift and entry into the castle and worked out cheaper than buying admission tickets on arrival. The Luxembourg Card is available on an app an you can activate when you first want to use it, purchasing it via the app. You then just need to show the virtual card to gain entry. The Card covers entry to countless attractions as well as public transport, so is well worth looking at if you are visiting the area for a few days.
The journey on the chairlift took about 10 minutes to the top where there is a restaurant and a view point, as well as a pathway to the castle. The views on the way up are stunning and the journey is worth it for these. We had drinks at the restaurant - 2 coffees and 2 soft drinks for €10, and we were able to pay by contactless card.

After our drinks we walked to the castle. The pathway is quite steep and fairly sturdy footwear would be a good idea. Entry to the castle was also covered by our Luxembourg Card.

The picture posted with this review was taken from the chairlift.

Took the cable car up to have a drink and then to the castle. Path to castle quite challenging. Enjoyable ride with great views of castle and town
