Vianden Castle

Montée du Château, 9408, Vianden, Diekirch, Luxembourg

Vianden Castle was constructed between the 11th and 14th centuries on the foundations of a Roman 'castellum' and a Carolingian refuge. It is one of the largest and most beautiful feudal residences of the romanesque and gothic periods in Europe. In 1820, under the reign of King William I of Holland, the castle was sold piece by piece, and as a result, it fell into a state of ruin. It was a pile of rubble until the family of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg transferred it to state ownership in 1977. Since restored to its former glory, the castle now ranks as a monument of not only regional, but European importance.
