Route & Duration
One of the largest fortified castles west of the Rhine is Vianden Castle. The castle was erected in the Romanesque style from the 11th to 14th centuries, with antecedents reaching back to the 10th century. At the conclusion of this period, Gothic modifications and embellishments were introduced. In the 17th century, a Renaissance palace was erected, but the castle was thereafter abandoned. It has lately been totally repaired and is now available to the public.
Musée de la caricature
The Museum of Caricature and Cartoons of Vianden is a charming little museum of caricatures and cartoons. The Caricature and Cartoon Museum exhibits the history of national and international caricatures, as well as the greatest contemporary caricatures. The museum hosts a permanent exhibition, Vianden's "Salon International de Caricature et Cartoon," as well as temporary exhibitions by Luxembourg and international artists.
Musée Littéraire Victor Hugo
The Victor Hugo Museum explores the life and works of this famous writer, who wrote "The Hunchback of Notre-Dame" and "Les Misérables," among many other works. Visitors may visit Victor Hugo's chamber, which is furnished with real items and has holographic projections that almost literally bring the writer to life. There are authentic artifacts to examine, as well as 70 information panels and a multimedia area.
Vianden has Luxembourg's only cable car. The chairlift, which was totally restored in 2006, takes you from the valley floor to a height of 440 meters. From there, you may get a great view of the entire city, including the castle and the dam. You may also use the inn to prepare for a possible trek up the mountain side or to ride the chairlift back down to the valley.
