Altstadt Vianden is located on the hill top away from city center. Despite that you need to walk up the steep road in order to reach the castle, you can secure nice views from above,

As you approach Vianden the stunning chateau on the hilltop instantly catches your eye. The village below is also very pretty, with splendid riverside walks and plenty of attractive shops and restaurants. To be honest, we didn’t really know what to expect of this area,...More
