    Above the picturesque village of Esch-Sur-Sûre, sited on a bend of the River Sure, are the castle ruins.

    Above the tiny village lie the ruins of a castle. A reason to climb up there is to enjoy the surrounding views and the Esch panorama.

  • Staircase up to the castle

    As soon as you reach the village, there is a steep staircase curved on the rock which leads you to the top of the cliffs where the ruins are. The ascending is not tiring and at a certain point rather romantic where you have fallen leaves from trees

  • Wandering around the village

    It will take you a couple of minutes to walk around the tiny village of Esch-sur-Sure and for sure you'll get the sleepy impression most places give in Luxembourg. Luckily there are 2 cafeteriasThere are also small bridges connecting the villages with the facing hills (which I suspect may be trekking trails as well)

  • Explore the village on foot!

    It's a small place, compact and tiny. The entire village is accessible on foot. Do note that the village is built around a hill so climbing should be included in your exploration. Very charming place. I had brought sandwiches and the river banks made great locations for a picnic. A quiet place, dignified.....almost stately. It was a delight...

    Getting to Esch-sur-Sure

    by hydronetta Written Oct 23, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best way to visit Esch-sur-Sure is by car. As distances in Luxembourg are small, it is convenient to add Esch as a part of a daily round trip in the north part of the country.
    But beware as usually the roads are under construction and you have to pay attention to redirections.
    As the village is not served by train, the other alternative is buses.

    Lake of Upper Sure

    by hydronetta Written Oct 23, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Few kilometers away from Esch-sur-Sure lies this artificial lake which is a large water reservoir. It's a nice stop to enjoy the surrounding landscape with green hills.
    It is considered a unique biotope but human activities also take place like watersports (swimming, yachting, canoeing etc)

  • National Flag of Luxembourg

    Despite the similarity between the flags of the Netherlands and of Luxembourg, they are not the same, and it is just a coincidence, as both of them do not have a common origin. The colours of the National flag of Luxembourg were derived from the coat of arms, first used in 1830 during the Belgian revolt. The flag was defined as an horizontal...
