The first traces of a castle in Useldange can be found in texts from the 12th century. The imposing fortress was owned from the 1920s by a lady who was born in Useldange but had emigrated to the USA. She had a villa built on the site, which now houses the town hall. A few years ago, in cooperation with UNESCO, a didactic trail was created that was especially designed for people with visual impairments. Therefore, at the various stations in the tower of the castle, for example, you will also find exhibits to touch. By the way, in the basement you can find a lot of information about the witch hunts.
Information for parents:
- You can’t miss Useldange Castle: it is located in the centre of the village, directly on the Attert river. Several beautiful hiking trails also start here.
- The tour of the tower is not possible for prams and you have to walk a lot of stairs to get to the top of the tower, from where you can see far into the countryside.
- Visit Guttland organises regular tours of the castle, which are also specially designed for children. But you can also book group tours, in Luxembourgish, French or English.
