"A town with a castle" Vianden by dlandt
Vianden Travel Guide: 81 reviews and 282 photos
As you drive into Vianden, the first thing you will see is the castle and then you will know that its the heart and soul of the town. This is a truly impressive fortification that somehow or other, despite the renovations and fresh paint, seems to remain just so "functional". Something about its layout really does give you the idea that, unlike a lot of others I've seen, this one was really a military fortification that was dead serious. When you go in here there are displays and they are still renovating, but everything is well done. Sadly enough, Dutch and German are the posted languages with only some small amounts of English and French.
- Pros:This is one of the great castles of Europe
- Cons:Dutch and German are the languages
- In a nutshell:Its worth stopping for.
I didn't spend time in the town itself. Who would, when there is this awe-inspiring castle to explore! What struck me... more travel advice
