Valley of the Seven Castles

Saturday we drove over to Luxembourg to check out the Eisch Valley. Street name – Valley of the Seven Castles, because…uhh…because there’s castles and it’s just cooler. Most of these grand homes have been left for ruins and/or tourism, some turned into private residences or administrative offices, and one met us with 15+ firemen onsite – oops.

    Beautiful pictures….love seeing all these interesting things. Amazing architecture…more so when you remember how long ago these were built. Thanks for sharing.

    How is there no mention that the sixth castle appears to be on fire?!

    • Hahaha it’s stealthily hidden in the intro! Honestly, because I was at a loss for words – they were all just standing there laughing at us for taking photos. Guys! There’s a fire right in front of you! Like, we’re gonna drive to another country and NOT take photos of the crazy scenario!
