Viewpoint Victor Hugo

The Victor Hugo viewpoint offers stunning views of the meandering Our River and verdant hills. Victor Hugo's artistic inspiration here, marked by sixty illustrations, harmonizes with nature's palette, inviting visitors to linger, picnic, and appreciate the timeless beauty.

The Victor Hugo viewpoint offers breathtaking views amidst nature. It is said that Victor Hugo created sixty illustrations during his stays in Luxembourg. A painting spot above the Our River, accessible from Bivels via a small, steep road towards the Vianden pumped storage power plant, provides a glimpse into Hugo's artistic work. One might think that the brushstroke arrived too late - the painting had already been completed centuries ago. The meandering Our River, nestled amidst the green forested hills of the Ardennes and Eifel, seems precisely calculated, each hill measured in aesthetic harmony. The colors bestowed by nature surpass what a painter's palette could achieve. In the midst of nature, this viewpoint invites you to picnic and linger. Enjoy the breathtaking view and admire Victor Hugo's drawings.
