site was chosen by the Romans. During the Middle Ages, Vianden Castle was greatly expanded and became a royal residence during the 18th century but fell into ruins. During the late 20th century it was expertly rebuilt and now juts proudly over the city. The seven euro price of admission is well worth it for the lessons in history and architecture, not to mention the superb view!

Questo Castello al confine con la Germania fu costruito già in epoca romana! Dopo i vari lifting nelle diverse epoche storiche, era stato lasciato un po' decadere, prima che un progetto statale lo recuperasse nel 1977, dandogli un aspetto fiabesco. L'esterno è più bello dell'interno.
