With a medieval fortress, a Renaissance castle and a tranquil valley, the Châteaux de Beaufort, situated right in the heart of Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland, is the perfect place to escape for nature lovers, history buffs, rock music fans and families alike. “A huge fortress was constructed on this site from 1150 onwards,” Patrick Sanavia from Les Amis des Châteaux de Beaufort tells us. “In the 19th century, a lot of this original fortress fell into decline. How- ever, up until today, a mighty ruin with lots of chambers and towers has been preserved and can be visited on a self- guided tour.”
