  • Créhange House

    Or Chriechinger Haus as it is called in the local languge is the only completely restored building of the former castle.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I strongly recommend that you walk up to the castle. From the central market square take the "Rue de Mersch" street and look out for the sign pointing uphill to some steps on the right hand side of the road. Taking this path you will be rewarded by splendid views over town and you walk right underneath the castle walls.

    Of course you can also drive up and there is a car park up there. If you want to do that just follow the Rue de Mersch further until you see the appropriate turn off.

  • Shooting holes

    Although most of the castle now is a ruin, you can still see structures of fireplaces, and in a booklet we bought when we got in, it was well written what each space once was used for. On this pic, obviously, are shooting holes, it is in the Homburger house.
