Larochette and its castle

Larochette, called "Fiels" in Luxembourg language, lies in the valley of the White Ernz.  Even though it is quite small, it is no village, due to the castle it has obtain city-rights long time ago.

Already in the last century, Larochette was a popular place for travellers.  And the castle, the rock formations, the romantic place "Bleech"  and the neoroman church lost nothing of their charm.

The restored castle of Larochette is worth a visit, in fact it is a twin-castle dating from the 13th century.  Preservation works on the ruins started 1979.  During excavations at the original dungeon, remnants of a late-Celtic settlement were found.

The countryside is as beautiful as ever, too.  Even those who don't really like walking will enjoy a stroll through the magnificent woods, like through the Manzebach valley, from Ernzen to the romantic Meysembourg castle. Different walking maps are available at the reception of Camping Auf Kengert.

Excursions and tours

In Summer months,  there are guided tours and on regular basis a free tour starts at Larochette castle on a carriage with Ardennes horses.
