Legend has it that Vianden Castle in Luxembourg is haunted by the ghost of a White Lady. According to the tale, she was a noblewoman who fell in love with a commoner.

Forbidden from marrying him, she was left heartbroken and died of sorrow. It’s said that her spirit still wanders the castle, searching for her lost love, and occasionally appears as a white mist or a melancholic figure in the moonlight.

The best moment to visit Vianden is when it hosts a medieval festival, which happens annually.
