  • There’s nothing more humbling than standing under the canopy of Medieval architecture. 👸🏼🏰

Today I visited the small town of Vianden and its castle by the same namesake. About an hour and a half by train and bus from Luxembourg City, Vianden is the place where Victor Hugo lived for some time after being exiled from Belgium (they even have a small literary museum dedicated to him here). .
.
Chateau de Vianden has origins that go back to the 10th century, but was mostly built from the 11th-14th centuries. That’s right, it took them 400 years to build it..but just by going from the impressive architecture, I’d say it was worth it. It’s also one of the largest fortified castles north of the Rhine, and Luxembourg’s most famous castle. .
.
I spent the afternoon exploring the castle grounds, staying warm in the heated bits that were inside the castle (definitely a modern day luxury that its original habitant did not get to enjoy - just thinking about that makes me feel chilly), and taking in the expansive views over tiny Vianden from the balconies. I love historical days like this on the road. Plus, I’m glad I got to get out of the city for a day and see a second destination in Luxembourg before I head back to France tomorrow. Vianden was all kinds of lovely. 🇱🇺💗

Do you have a favorite castle that you’ve visited? I think mine still goes to Edinburgh Castle, which took me a full day to tour it was so huge. 🤓🏰

  • 🇱🇺 Château de Vianden, Luxembourg
—
It may sound crazy, but in less than an hour you can get from one corner of Luxembourg to another. If you want to see something different outside of Luxembourg City, then take a one-hour train + bus ride to the city of Vianden and check out this lovely castle on the top of the hill. Daily passes cost €2 and they’re valid in the entire country, meaning you can actually go back and forth and also take unlimited bus rides in Luxembourg City with the same ticket.

  • OK... I'm being sentimental... Lazy Sunday morning... I've already taken Jeudi for his morning walk and guess where I am now, back into my warm, cozy bed with my latest read, "My Dear Hamilton", the story of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton. I'm in Morristown, NJ - my mother's birth place - in 1780, its the heart of winter and the troops are cold and hungry! ... but I just keep thinking of Jan 31st, the day our Augie flies to the Big Apple. Boy do I hate seeing my babies move away! #luxembourg #winter #cold #mybabies #fatherandson #chateaudevianden #chateaumedieval #ramparts #familytrip
