Vianden Castle in Luxembourg

located on a hill overlooking the Our valley in Luxembourg, Vianden Castle is one of the most popular castles in Europe. The first buildings of the castle were constructed in the 12th and 13th century on the foundations of a Roman castle. Over the next centuries Vianden Castle was expanded and became the residence of the powerful counts of Vianden.

The castle fell in ruins after it was sold piece by piece in 1820 by King William I of Holland. In 1890 Vianden Castle was acquired by Grand Duke Adolphe of the Nassau Dynasty and remained the property of the family until 1977. At that time it was sold to the state of Luxembourg. Since then the castle was renovated and rebuilt after old images to its former glory. Vianden Castle is now a museum and is also used for official State occasions.
