Where? Rue de Lultzhausen, L-9650 Esch-sur-Sûre
The ruins of the castle of Esch-sur-Sûre tell exciting stories of times gone by and at the same time offer a gorgeous view of the surrounding nature as well as the medieval town that lies at its feet.
The origins of the castle date back to 774, as evidenced by the first written records of the existence of Esch-sur-Sûre. The castle foundations date back to the year 927, when Maingaud and his wife Hiletrude from the Abbey in Stavelot acquired Esch-sur-Sûre to build a fortified castle there.
Today, in government ownership, only the fortified ruins of Esch-sur-Sûre’s former lordship are visible.
The castle is open to the public all year round.
