"Cable Car Ride" Vianden Things to Do Tip by JohnnySpangles

Vianden Things to Do: 46 reviews and 89 photos


If you tire of the castle then there’s also a cable-car in Vianden which takes you up to the top of a hill that’s even higher than the one the castle is perched on. One return ride is free with your Luxembourg Card, and that’s about all you’d want unless you’re particularly keen on having your life hanging by a welded joint that really asks big questions of your faith in Luxemburgish engineering. Before I got on the ride I asked if it ever gets stuck and leaves its riders dangling in mid-air overnight. The grizzled old chap in the ticket office told me that this doesn’t happen very often. By sheer coincidence it has only ever happened when there’s been a particularly big bus-load of tourists coming over the border from Germany.

Address: Rue du Sanatorium, Vianden
Directions: Come down from the castle, through the town, cross the river then turn left.
