The town is perhaps best known for its medieval castle, the Vianden Castle, which stands prominently on a hill overlooking the town. The castle has origins dating back to the 11th century and has undergone several expansions and renovations over the years.

Vianden's origins trace back to the Gallo-Roman age, where a strategic castellum once stood on the grounds where the majestic castle now rises. In those ancient times, the town carried the name Viennensis, a name that reverberates with its historical significance through the ages.
