Although there are many beautiful places to visit in The Ardennes region, we only visited Vianden. Major tourist attraction is the magnificent Vianden castle, built between the 11th and 14th centuries, but the city is filled with history and different museums. It’s an amazing place to be. Medieval city with narrow streets and castle on top of mountain,it must have been a spectacular view for every visitor back in the day as it is now.
