Very nice castle with amazing views of the valley. The valley is impressive and the castle is well restored but keeps a lot of the old charm of a ruined castle as well. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

Located on the hill with a stunning view to the river and the city. It also worth to stop on the way to it to see it from the distance. Not much to see inside but you can use an audio guide to get some additional information on what is left (included in the ticket price which was 5 euro-... More

A really well thought and organised sight. It's ready to accommodate both a seasoned traveller and a novice alike. Take an audio kit in your language and let the castle take you over and immerse you on a journey through time... It rained, but I still really enjoyed this. The only let down is that the light didn't allow me... More

Beautiful castle. Only $5 to enter. No line. Only 4 other people were at the castle when we visited. I didn't really care for the audio tour. The man talking talked way too much and it kind of took away from the experience. Great photo opportunities.

Fun to visit when you are near. Not a really significant building and parts of it are in bad shape. It does have a nice view of the surrounding area.

With Luxembourg card, you will get a free entry. And you could rent a mountain bike (free with Luxembourg card) at Diekirch, then at Ettelbruck take bus 454 (seems like just in weekdays) direction to Heiderscheid, stop at Bourscheid! With bike you are down hill and on your way to the castle! Very nice view along the way! You can... More

At only 5€ to go in, it's well worth a visit. A fascinating castle and the audio guide is a must if you want to learn all about its history and layout.
