Bourscheid Castle

Bourscheid Castle and Gothic manor house

Bourscheid Castle is Luxembourg‘s biggest castle, an impressive structure with its characteristic round towers, situated on a steep promontory, perched 150 metres high above the Sûre river. The castle was probably built in the 10th century, and then extended in the 14th and 15th centuries, when the fortress wall was added, flanked by six Gothic towers. Nowadays, audio guides in seven different languages guide visitors round the castle. There are amazing views from the castle over the whole valley around Bourscheid. In the evening, the building is illuminated, creating a fairy-tale atmosphere. The nearby Stolzembourg House is a magnificent Gothic manor house dating back to 1348.
