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.

Did you know you were camping in Medernach ?  Camping Auf Kengert lies just upon two territories, Medernach and Larochette.  Main building, pool and sanitary block are in Medernach, the southern fields belong to Larochette.

The former agricultural village changed to handcrafts and a more industrial shape.  In the church, rebuilt in1806, you can see a magnificent Baroque altar dating back to 1700.  Over the territory of Medernach are many stone crosses, each bearing its own story.

Luxemburg

A day in Luxembourg-city, the “Gibraltar of the North” should be definitely part of your holiday programme.

Our tips :
Casemates: this underground tunnel system was used since 1644 for the defense of the city.  It is quite impressive and worthwile visiting.
Musée Dräi Eechelen : in this museum you will learn about the development of the city from a fortress to a modern city in an old building that was part of the fortress.
Shopping and strolling through the old city with its delightful terraces or book a city promenade, where during 2 hours a guide will lead you to most interesting points (daily starts from the City Tourist Office on place Guillaume II)
