The waterfall, known as "Schiessentümpel", with its three water jets on the Black Ernz is one of the most photographed motives of the Mullerthal Region - Luxembourg's Little Switzerland.

The small medieval town of Vianden attracts thousands of visitors every year.

The tour was great. The bus is modern and comfortable with a good audio guide while on board. The driver doesn't speak English but managed to communicate everything we needed easily. First we took a nature walk - the guide was extremely friendly and informative and the walk was interesting along a river showing us the geological history of the country. We passed Beaufort castle which is unfortunately closed, but got 10 minutes to take photos before heading on to Vianden. Vianden town is fairytale pretty and the castle itself is well worth a visit. 2.5 hours is plenty of time to walk to the castle and look around but don't dawdle! After leaving Vianden we headed on to Echternach to look around the basilica. This was great and the guide was excellent, but we would have liked a few more minutes to see the town. It's a full day - 8 hours on the dot - and you have to eat on the bus if you want to make the most of your time, but I'd highly recommend this as a way to see the country. It's a little expensive but I can't think of a better way of seeing as much without hiring a car.

The tour was really interesting, you can experience a side of Luxembourg that is really different from the main city. However, time runs out very fast and especially for the visit to the Vianden Castle it is absolutely not enough. They give you only 2 hours to visit the castle, but: 1. the coach leaves you at the opposite side of the city, far away from the castle; 2. then you need to walk for 20/30 minutes towards the castle, in a difficult and very hard slope route (not very good for strollers or wheel chairs) 3. then you have 1 hour max to visit the castle, so a little bit in a rush 4. then you have to go back to the parking to reach the coach, so consider another 20 minutes. Considering that you reach the castle during lunch time, basically you don’t have time for lunch. I would suggest to reach the castle and having lunch in the bar/restaurant inside the castle. So: a nice experience, but more time would be preferable

Booking was simple and Google maps brings you right to the stop to catch the bus. Driver had no English and didn't seem sure on where she was going. Would have preferred to miss the first "castle" and just spend the extra time in Viandin. There was very little time to grab food and do a full tour of Viandin as we were dropped off down the town and not at the castle so everything was a bit rushed. The town of Viandin is beautiful but would have preferred the extra time at the castle. The chair lift in Viandin was not open, even though the tour recording stated you could get the chair lift up and walk through the woods to the Viandin and so there was a wasted trip up there, having to double back to walk up to the castle from the town. Both tour guides were knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
