This castle is called the "Chateau de Malbrouck" because the Duke of Marlborough spent one or two nights here in 1075 when he was on his way to some war somewhere... It has been lovingly restored and it is certainly worth a visit.

We visited the castle in April on our way back from Luxemburg. We could not go inside as it was late already. But it was nice from outside already. We hope the main road is open to public again as the detour was a bit of a hassle. Anyway, this little side trip was worth it.

Situated towards the far north-eastern border of France, this Château might easily go unnoticed. Yet, I was pleasantly surprised when I visited it a couple of days ago. Restoration works have been going on for quite a while and I could see they transformed this domineering castle into such a lovely place. The place is equipped with very informative information...

This was a nice surprise near the border of France. It is a fully reconstructed chateau and there was a full exhibit on how the restoration was done when we were there. At the time my son who was 6yo was into airplanes and toy and they had both in abundance due to a special exhibit on airplane toys so... More

This was my first visit ever to an actual Chateau. As we approached through the lovely small village below and saw the Chateau looming above us on the hill, I became more and more excited. I was still excited as we approached the entrance and then, once inside, I was a bit disappointed to learn it was a complete renovation.... More

We were driving aimlessly around the countryside after visiting the Maginot Line (Ouvrage Hackenberg) when we saw this castle in the distance and drove to it. I'm so glad we did! Excellently restored and plenty of amenities. The exhibits weren't special, but just seeing how it was restored and walking the high battlements was fun. There was plenty of space... More

Dominating the village, this newly restored small castle offers large vistas over the surrounding areas in 3 countries. Follow the arrows to visit all parts of the castle. It presents rotating exhibitions (toys of the past when we were there) and a permanent display on the building crafts (the one on roofing is quite amazing). There is also a section... More
