The Grand-Château d’Ansembourg is one of Luxembourg’s Neo-Renaissance and Baroque-style treasures. Located in the Eisch valley, or ‘Valley of the Seven Castles’, its construction began in the mid-17th century and was finished around a hundred years later. A pioneer of the iron industry, Thomas Bidart built the comfortable house sur- rounded by walls and towers, two of which still exist today. Bidart’s descend- ants expanded the terrain and building, so the château is now enclosed by a series of beautiful baroque gardens. Visitors can walk along the garden’s stunning pathways, get lost in its labyrinths, enjoy the water fountains and a variety of flow- ers and plants.
