Ettelbruck/Ettelbréck/Ettelbrück

Parish Church of St. Sebastian, Ettelbruck

I can’t offer you much information and pictures of Ettelbruck, as my visit was unplanned and I landed there on my way back home from the town of Diekirch, the main settlement of the canton and district, which Ettelbruck belongs to. Now I know that there is a town sightseeing walk with almost 15 important historical stations, but when I was there, even the (more…)

Gouvy

Gouvy Castle

I’ve never managed to take the picture of Gouvy that I originally wanted to. It was a view of a street, that caught my eye while driving through the settlement. But I didn’t have the possibility to stop the car and capture the moment. And of course, the second time when I passed through the village, it wasn’t the same.

Urspelt/Ischpelt

Urspelt Castle

I had no intentions to make reviews of hotels. But a castle is a castle. And this is my greatest passion, as you already know. Who’s said, that Belgium is the country with the highest density of castles per square kilometer, when Château d’Urspelt is only 5 km away from Château de Clervaux. I know, I know – there is no such country as Belgium, where the castles arise one after another from the left and from the right when you drive down the interurban roads. (more…)
