The chair lift or cable car of Vianden!

So here I am reminicent about one of my favorite countries in Europe and the things we did there as a family. Going there was always a family affair, and we love it. The family discussions on where to go was lively!

I would go to Luxembourg city only, but the family asked to see something else and me the always same spot guy had to bend, just a little lol! So off we went to see other spots in Luxembourg and we end up at Vianden! There is a beautiful castle here but what we had a lot of fun and took several times during our stay there !!! was the chair lift or cable car of Vianden. A must for the whole family , if kids needs to be able to stand on their own for the steepness of it.


It works like a ski lift you stand on the mark spot the chair comes in and lift you and lower a bar. At the top there is a café . Perched on the hilltop amidst a sea of green, a visit to Vianden Castle is one of the most popular things to do in Luxembourg, and for good reason. And I have previous post on the castle. However, the best way to get to the castle other than a car is the cable car or chairlift! For the best views, make a beeline to it and be whisked above the pastel jumble of the old town and soft curves of the Our River.. From here it’s a short walk of about 10 minutes to the castle if you wish to look inside. For a different perspective, visit the viewpoint on Rue de Diekirch near the Hotel Belvedere. Make sure to take your camera in tow to capture magical views of the castle from above at altitudes from 230 to 440 meters!



Some webpages to expand on my story line above and help you plan your trip here are

And there you , another side trip or different way to go up and see the wonderful castle here. I must add the car route thru city center is awesome and going up the tight hilly roads interesting too/ However, for the whole family thrills the Vianden cable car /chairlift deal is very good too.  Hope you enjoy it

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
