Travel Tips for Vianden

Wheelchair Access

by RhineRoll

Wheelchair access is not very good in these parts of Europe and that pretty much goes for Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium alike with slight advantages for German tourist attractions where you *might* be lucky to find handicap facilities. Belgium is the worst which is a pity because it has so many wonderful cities to visit. In Vianden, all I came across were two handicap parking bays and that was it. Not many problems with steep terrain along the riverfront, but the fun definitely starts as you cross the bridge for the upper parts of town...

The upper reservoir/ bassin supérieur

by himalia11

As we just had visited the hydro-electric power station, we were curious to see the reservoirs, which are used to "store" the water until electricity is needed. There's not so much to see, and we only found one place from where you can take a closer look at the lake. There's a big parking (with toilets, but they were closed) from which two stairs go up and then you are at the lake, on a kind of platform for visitors. The lake looks pretty ugly, with all the concrete around, very artificial. Not really a must-see!

Directions: From Vianden follow the signs in direction Clerveau, up the hill. After a while there's a big parking on the left side, about 5 km from Vianden.

The Town

by RhineRoll

Vianden essentially has three points of focus. The first and most obvious one would be the castle. The second not much less obvious is the lovely riverfront to both sides of the bridge. Most of Vianden's pretty houses and corners are actually situated on the left bank of the Our, where the main street goes uphill towards the castle in pretty much the same fashion a snail's house is wrapping itself around the snail . For best views of the castle, keep going along this main road until it starts becoming a hairpin road and leaves the town.

The Trinitarian church

by tompt

The Trinitarians built this church in 1248. Count Henry I, whose father had been freed from Saracen captivity by Trinitarians during the Crusades, asked them to come to Vianden.

Above the entrance-portal of the church there is a statue representing the Virgin Mary with the Child Jesus, dating back to the 14th century.

The altar of the Blessed Sacrament in the left side of the church, dates back to the 15th century. The main altar was built in 1758 by the Vianden artists Daleyden and Goldschmit.

Since 1988 diggings have discovered numerous tombs under the church. The floor was lowered almost half a meter to restore the original proportions of the gothic church.

Side trip to Larochette Castle

by Ewingjr98

Larochette is located about 30 km north of Luxembourg city. It is comprised of a large castle overlooking a small village. The castle was begun in the 11th Century and reached it greatest peak in 1565 when it caught fire and was destroyed. In German the castle is known as Fels, which means rock, implying the massive rock upon which the castle was built. The village sits along the banks of the Ernz River which flows north to the Our, along the border of Luxembourg and Germany.
