Valley of the Seven Castles in Luxembourg – Part I


The valley stretches from the confluence with the Alzette upstream to Steinfort,
on the border with Belgium.
It is named after the group of seven castles that line its route. 
Part I – Castle of Schoenfels

Schoenfels Castle lies in the village of the same name, 
south of the town of Mersch in Luxembourg.
It was built as a fortified keep in 1292.

  1. The shape of the castle is old, but the castel itself does not seem so old.. But it looks like a castel from a fairy tale, I like it!

  5. J'adore les routes de châteaux. Celui-ci me fait penser à des châteaux écossais, il est beau et il devait bien remplir son rôle défensif !

  6. I'm not surprised in a way how long that castle has been there. It looks like it was built to last forever. Great shots.

  8. I love these! How do you get anything done in Luxembourg when you've got all these castles to visit and take pictures of? I'll bet you dream of princes and princesses and white horses, and jousting and pig roasts and, well, you get the picture!

  9. This is probably one of the most unusual architectural design for a castle that I have ever seen, even for a medieval castle. Very interesting!
