Valley of the Seven Castles in Luxembourg – Part VI and VII


Part VI – Septfontaines Castle


Septfontaines Castle, locally known as Burg Simmern,
lies above the small village by the same name in Luxembourg.
It was probably built in the 12th century and at present the castle
is private property and can not be visited, it’s a pity.

Part VII – Koerich Castle
It was probably built at the beginning of
the 13th century by Wirich I, Lord of Koerich and Seneschal of Luxembourg in late Romanesque style.

Today major repairs are in progress.

  1. It's hard to imagine buildings this old still standing…in Florida, we seem to build things to last 20-30 years, then tear them down and build something new!

    That last picture certainly indicates a need for “extensive” repairs!

    Hope you've been having a good time!

  5. I love seeing and photographing places like this. I'm sure it will look great when it's fully restored but I like it the way it is now.

    Cezar regarding your comment at Weekend Reflections.
    I titled it “Looking down to see what's up” because it's a picture of a pond with a very clear reflection of tree branches and blue sky. It might seem like I was looking up but it's all just a reflection on the water. I hope that makes sense. 🙂

  6. It is a pity that they are private because it would be wonderful to see the inside. On the other hand, if the owners can afford to restore it an preserve it, it will be around for generations to come.

  7. Oh, dear. Is this the last in the series? I must be very greedy because I'm hoping somehow you'll find more castles to show us.

  10. It would be great to visit it but I can see why the owners don't want people roaming around the property while it is being repaired. Perhaps they will open it for a special occasion or weekend. I LOVE roaming around ruins. 🙂

  11. Even without repairs finished I think it looks great. I like to see the age in crumbling castles and they are almost more romantic when they aren't repaired but I realize there is a risk of them falling down if some work isn't done. I like all the shots and the last one is fantastic.

  12. It's good to see the last one being restored. «Louis» agrees that it's a pity that the other one can't be visited. This has been a nice series!
