Description

The castles of Larochette

Two castles tower over this area and dominate the picturesque little town of Larochette (Fels in German). The buildings of the fortified castle, which dates back to before the 12th century, are perched on a promontory of Luxembourg sandstone, about 150m above the valley of the White Ernz, a tributary of the river Sûre. The oldest part of the castle is the Homburg Manor. It fell victim to a huge fire in 1565 and is still in ruins today. The Créhange Manor is the only building that has so far been fully restored. Temporary art exhibitions fill its historic walls with life. The many footpaths and mountain biking routes in the area offer excellent views over the whole castle complex.
