Towns and Villages of Luxembourg

This town’s ruined castle draws nearly 100,000 visitors a year.

This medieval town in the Moselle/Eiffel region is best known for its castle, which dates back to the 12th Century. The castle hosts Edward Steichen’s The Family of Man photo exhibit.

Hotel du Parc
The former summer residence of the last Earl of Clervaux was built from the stones of ancient ruins. Today, the renovated castle is a hotel and restaurant with a terrace overlooking the town.

National Museum of Military History
The Battle of the Bulge and Luxembourg’s own Army are honored here.

The Wine Museum
A former vintner’s house and a working vineyard make this a pleasant outing. The museum is located on the banks of the Moselle River.

National Museum of the Resistance
The museum apparently doesn’t have its own Web site, but pay it a visit if you’re in Esch-sur-Alzette.

General Patton Memorial Museum
Patton’s troops liberated the town, so the locals built a museum in his honor.
