***

ENGLISH:

Vianden is a commune with town status in the Oesling, north-eastern Luxembourg, with over 1,800 inhabitants. It is the capital of the canton of Vianden, which is part of the district of Diekirch. Vianden lies on the Our river, near the border between Luxembourg and Germany.

The castle was built between the 11th and 14th centuries and became the seat of the counts of Vianden. It was further developed until the 18th century but with the departure of the Counts of Luxembourg to the Netherlands combined with the effects of fire and an earthquake, it slowly deteriorated. The final blow came in 1820 when William I of the Netherlands sold it to a local merchant who in turn sold off its contents and masonry piecemeal, reducing it to a ruin. There were several attempts at restoration but these were hampered by problems of ownership. Still, the chapel which forms part of it was restored in 1849 by Prince Henry of the Netherlands, and during one of his visits to the town Victor Hugo lived in the castle for three months in 1871. Not until 1977, when Grand Duke Jean ceded the castle to the State, was it possible to undertake large-scale work, most of which has now been completed.

ESPAÑOL:

Vianden (luxemburgués Veianen, alemán Vianden) es una comuna y villa al norte de Luxemburgo, que forma parte del cantón de Vianden. Su nombre proviene del galo y quiere decir rocoso. Es atravesado por el río Our y se encuentra cerca de la frontera con Alemania. En 1308 recibió el título de villa. Es uno de los principales centros turísticos de Luxemburgo con un gran número de turistas y visitantes locales en todo momento del año. En particular, el castillo recientemente restaurado ubicado espectacularmente en las rocas sobre la ciudad se ha convertido en un museo que rastrea su historia y sus vínculos con las familias reales de Europa desde la Edad Media. Tiene vínculos con Víctor Hugo, que visitó Luxemburgo en 1862 y 1865 y pasó un período más largo en Vianden en 1871.
