Saint-Roch church Insenborn

Where? 1, An der Gaass, L-9150 Eschdorf

Discover the neo-Gothic splendour of the Insenborn church, built according to plans by architect Biver in 1861.

The church in Insenborn was built in the neo-Gothic style after the plan was drawn up by the architect Biver from Diekirch in 1861 and approved in January 1862. The foundation stone was laid on 12 June 1862. The building material was provided by the inhabitants, including stones from the surrounding area, house stones from Mertzig and wood from various places. The church was consecrated on 16 November of the same year. The baroque furniture was taken from the previous building, created by Jean-Georges Scholtus from Bastogne.

It is dedicated to Saint Roch. In the 20th century, the furnishings were modernised, although some statues were preserved. A second interior restoration took place in 2006, during which, among other things, the wooden benches were replaced by chairs.

Today's redesigned space includes expressive windows, new oak furniture and distinctive Stations of the Cross.
