Vianden Castle is one of the largest fortified castles west of the river Rhine. The origins of the castle date back to the 10th century and were expanded from the 11th century to the 14th century. It is located in the north of Luxembourg and one of the most visited sites in Luxembourg. The castle was built using the Romanesque style. The castle served as the home of the various Counts of Vianden until the early 15th century. We visited Luxembourg in the month of August. The month of July and August is a good time to visit Luxembourg as the days are longer and the weather is great. It is best to stay in Luxembourg City and explore the country either by public transportation or by your own transportation. In this post, we tell you how to reach Vianden Castle by train or public transportation.
HOW TO REACH VIANDEN CASTLE BY TRAIN
Vianden castle can be easily reached by public transportation from Luxembourg City. You can opt for a day ticket for 4 Euros and can travel anywhere in Luxembourg with that ticket.
From Luxembourg City, take the train to Ettelbruck and from Ettelbruck take the bus no 570 towards Stolzembourg. The bus stop and the train station are adjacent to each other. The bus drops you next to the Tourist office in Vianden. From here the castle is 850m uphill walk. Do carry an umbrella and lots of water if you are planning to visit Vianden castle during summer.
The castle has an entry fee and tickets can be bought on the spot. There is no need for any pre-bookings.
Adults – 7 € per person
Child – 2 € per child
