We stayed for one night on our way to Paris. The town, with its river, castle, and surrounding hills is like something straight out of a fairytale. The views from the castle are almost second to none.

In Esch-sur-Sûre you can climb up the hill to see some ruins. From there, you have a nice view over the village and valley. It's clean, but do wear decent shoes. Take a little time to walk around here and down in the streets. Enjoy...More

The castle of Esch-sur-Sûre is a true landmark. But that's actually it. No exhibition, no tourist information, nothing attractive. You'll enjoy it far more by just looking at it when traveling trough the wonderful Luxembourgish North and it's Ardennes than when you stop for a...More
