Vianden Express - City Tour

The Vianden Express will take you along the main sights of the medieval town of Vianden. Take advantage of the touristic train to reach Vianden Castle, one of the most important historical monuments in Europe.


 


The medieval town of Vianden always fascinates with its charm and attracts thousands of visitors every year.


On the one hand, visitors are treated to the great classics: the medieval castle, a national treasure and symbol of the beautiful feudal mansions of the Roman and Gothic periods, considered one of the most important historical monuments in Europe, and the Victor Hugo House, where the writer stayed in political exile in 1871.


But the chairlift is also a popular attraction of the small town. It is the only chairlift in Luxembourg that takes you from the valley, located at 220 meters, to an altitude of 440 meters and also offers an ideal viewpoint with a panoramic view of the entire city.The chairlift is open from April to October between 10:00 and 17:00.


The train has a final stop at the entrance near the car parking. From there, you can walk a very short distance until the Vianden Castle. With almost 200,000 visitors a year, Vianden Castle is still the most visited historical building in the Grand Duchy. It was built from the 11th to the 14th century on the foundations of a Roman fort and a Carolingian refuge.


From here you can get off to visit the castle. People spend an average of +/- 2 hours here.


With your Vianden Express ticket you can also benefit from the return trip. The train runs every hour and takes you from the final stop back to the station..

Disappointing

was very short, not 25 mins as promised on the sign. No explanation about the city despite there were speakers… 6€ for a 5 min drive to the castle. We could have used the taxi as well I am sure the driver would have told us more, very disappointing!

It only takes 10 min to get to the castle. It is far to be a city tour to come back we would have had to wait almost two hours because of their schedule. Basically we spend 12 euros to save 5 min and we had to walk our way back. No one can give you any information in the city

Teuere Rundfahrt durch Vianden / Touristenfalle

Overall rating

Quality/price

Fun factor

In Anbetracht, dass öffentliche Verkehrsmittel in Luxemburg kostenfrei sind, ist der Vianden Express eine teuere Rundfahrt. Keinerlei Erklärungen, kein Anschauungsmaterial, einfach mal gar nichts bekommt der Kunde. Man wird lediglich von A nach B transportiert. Alles in allem nicht anzuraten.

Nice ride

It was a nice ride, we liked that we didn't have to walk up to chateau Vianden. But it was a short ride... In my opinion de ride could be longer en we also missed being informed about de city of Vianden, thru headphones or a speaker for example. We did a same ride in Luxembourg city 2 years ago and we had that back then.

The driver was cranky, the drive was super short and for that matter also very expensive. The kids had fun though. Overall I would not recommend

Bumpy ride

Overall rating

Quality/price

Fun factor

The train is unbelievably slow, and even more bumpy. By the time we have reached the top of Vianden we were feeling nauseous and over it. We walked down and ended up being way faster than the train. For the record there is no guided tour on the train, not even the names of the places are being called out. It’s a long silent journey up the cobble stones
