Pretty Vianden has long been a firm favourite with Crusader customers. Embedded in the splendid landscape of the Ardennes, the town has had a tourist tradition for more than a hundred years. Thousands are charmed each year by the narrow lanes, gothic churches, the ramparts and fortified towers of this medieval town which is dominated by the magnificent castle. For 2020 we have included a day in Luxembourg City as well as a day in Roman Trier, Germany’s oldest city.
