You drive into a small village. It is quiet and peaceful. There are barely any people on the streets and cars nowhere to be seen. Sun is shining on the little patch of colourful little buildings around a sparkly blue narrow river. They are surrounded by hills of green tall trees with a magnificent castle in the midst. It looks like a fairytale and it feels like peace you’ve needed the whole week.
Everything is closed except the couple cafe’s selling the best array of ice cream flavours which you can eat by the river bank on a beautiful white tiled terrace. Nobody is bothering you and you feel like you could spend hours in there.
This is Vianden. A small village on the outskirts of Luxembourg right next to the german border. Actually, it only takes 1km to Germany. If you have a car and are visiting Luxembourg or any nearby city this is a place for a visit. It offers hiking routes and cultural pleasures. For me, the best thing was just sitting and enjoying the view and the vibe!
