Took a day trip into the countryside and spent a couple of hours walking thru the castle. Classic old european castle and well worth the visit.

If visiting Luxembourg by car, this is an excellent stop. The notion of preservation was different from what I anticipated; much was modern and it was difficult to sort out when certain portions were constructed. I visited during the week in March. The weather was great (unseasonable I think) and parking was easy and close enough for those with good mobility. The site was not at all crowded. There are lovely vistas both approaching the castle and village and from the castle itself.

I first saw this château in 1973 when it was a complete ruin. Since then it has been completely restored "as new". I preferred it as a ruin.

Each year, there is a medieval festival hold at the castle (one week, in the summer). I recommend to see the castle then, as you have the opportunity to see a lot of the medieval activities "live". Ex: blacksmith, archery, jugglers, shooting with old guns, and a tournament (it may vary from year to year). The castle seems complete, it has been fully renovated. You can find also the history of the Count of Vianden, and the family tree in one of the rooms.

It is a must see if you visit Luxembourg. The best to go during the Nuts Market, early automn, sometimes in September. The whole town is buzzling during the market and you can buy everything made of walnut, spirits, sweets or sausage. It gets quite crowded by the afternoon, so you are better off coming early, around 10 and park outside the town (there are shuttle buses provided). The castle was renovated completely and has a beautiful view. You can also reach it with chair lift.
