Vianden



I'm really loving the nightcolors here! Almost fairytale like.


This is Luxembourg at its most touristy, and understandably so. Round a bend in the road and before you rises the impeccably restored medieval castle of Vianden, framed by forest and shrouded in mist. If this doesn’t bring back childhood tales of princes and princesses, baddies and beasts, nothing will.

Vianden’s picturesque location – nestled in the valley of the Our River – has made it a summer beehive. On weekends the town buzzes with German, Belgian and Dutch visitors soaking up the village ambience at terrace cafés along Grand Rue – the steep, narrow main street. At times the bustle is too much (avoid Sundays in summer when motorcycle troops throttle through town fraying nerves and oscillating eardrums) but mostly it’s not so chaotic. [source: lonelyplanet]


Thank you very much Anne!
