- Hidden military complex in the Tanraga Mountains. As of October 2006, it has been opened to tourists, with a Visitor's Centre and neatly labelled displays. Hooking into their system revealed the VHC tempfile
- Commanding Officer Commander Fitzgerald, who answers to Sente Kiteway. Chadwick may have been in command of the cube material testing phases, see VHC tempfile.
- When Scarlett visited in 2005, the area was protected by a confusion device, designed by Claire Castille
- Extremely dangerous to know about, as she was involved, somehow, in the Theft of The Receda Cube. She or the facility may be linked, somehow, to the deaths of Pietro Salk, Bernardo Holyoke, Fran Mendling and Monica Grand.
- Claire Castille was employed here for a time, until things got a bit more dangerous.
- According to Henry Castille (date), this area was almost entirely destroyed in The War. The only known survivor was Henry Castille's great great grandfather, Salvant Castille.
- We first heard the name Viendenbourg on August 12 2005, in an e-mail from Scarlett. She had found a note hidden in Pietro Salk's desk which read "Reynolds ionizers. Viendenbourg.". It was hidden on the back of the Five of Cups file, so he must have found it during his research about the Theft of the cube. link
Description from Scarlett
The place is large, about 2 miles all the way round, with many more buildings in it than I thought. There's the main building, the long, low grey one. It's huge, probably at least 150,000 square metres. That's the building which the noise of drilling comes from about 14 hours a day. There are also other buildings though; offices and houses, what look like dorm rooms and even a few stores. The more I watched, the more lax their security systems seemed. The gates are open all the time; people walk in and out easily, not even showing their ID to the guard. They even come out to go running!

- "Visitor's Centre" is lined with graphical displays of what looked like sedimentary layers, each neatly labelled
- Passes are also good for one trip to the Tanraga Animal Sanctuary and a free coffee at the visitors centre at the pre-Hausam land art
- Displays "celebrate the "rich history" of the region" and have "reconstructions of life in Olde Viendenbourg" - static displays and holographic projections as well as real scientists working on dating pieces discovered on site
- At the end of the tour, children hook their keys up to the Viendenbourg system to download some worksheets and vids to watch at home -- through this system, Kurt was able to find the VHC tempfile
- The Perplex City Sentinel

Violet & Scarlett went to Viendenbourg, and were shocked by the appalling display of ... tourism. Kurt managed to dislodge a choppy piece of data, affectionately known as the VHC tempfile, the contents of which changed everything.
