Trip Planner: Europe / Luxembourg / Luxembourg District / Larochette / Historic Sites / Larochette Castle
Since the 11th century, one castle or another has held court where Larochette Castle now sits. A steep walk up to the castle entrance rewards you with views over the small town and the surrounding countryside. If you have a rental car, you'll find free parking at the top of the hill. Ruined castle walls weave around the hills, many marking hidden passages and tunnels that are begging to be explored. The restored section of the castle sometimes hosts art exhibits, but its old stone halls can also be toured between art shows. A cafe with a bakery on the attraction's grounds will help refresh you after your castle tour.

The views to and from the Castle are fantastic. A great place to wander around. It's nice being able to make your way around the ruins and rebuild it in your mind. The restored part is also very good. They hold temporary exhibitions etc in there, we saw a variety of art on show.
The remains are not that much, but the explanations on what is what and the restored building give an impression about life in those days, which makes it worth visiting if you are around.
Pretty fascinating castle nestled and tucked over town.
Very pretty ruins
