Castles, Fortifications and Medieval Festivals in Luxembourg

Are you looking for an authentic fairytale destination?

Luxembourg is the perfect place for you with more than 50 castles and picturesque villages. Most of the castles have been restored to their former beauty and invite you to discover the rich historic past of the country.

The power of past Luxembourgish lords and lieges is evidenced by the various castles and fortifications in Luxembourg, remains of the Middle-Ages. Discover and visit not only the large restored castles (Vianden, Beaufort, Bourscheid, Bourglinster or Clervaux) but also the numerous majestic castle ruins revealing the myths and sagas of their time. Medieval festivals, culture, exhibitions and concerts offer excellent opportunities to discover the castles in a perfectly authentic setting in Luxembourg. Walking fans can follow the national hiking trail of the "Valley of the 7 castles" that runs through the idyllic Valley of Eisch in the western part of the country. There, one discovers the seven magnificent castles in a peaceful area with breathtaking landscapes and a spectacular culture offer. You can either drive the 24 kilometres route or  follow the traces of the past on an exciting 37-km walk.

Alongside the little narrow streets of Luxembourg-city, you will make your way through the charming old town where the impressive Grand-Ducal Palace opens its doors to curious visitors during the summer months.
