uilt between the 11th and 14th centuries, Vianden Castle in northern Luxembourg is one of the largest examples of a fortified castle constructed during Europe's Romanesque and Gothic periods. In the 1800s, it fell into a state of ruins, but in 1977, ownership was transferred to the state by the family of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg. Since then, major renovations and restoration have taken place. Original construction is still on display in the chapel, as well as the small and large palaces. Visitors can also tour the Knights Hall, crypt and grand kitchen, among other rooms.
