Alain’s Beach

This is a great beach to explore if you just want to run around or maybe try some swimming (if it’s warm enough)! You’ll find Alain’s Beach in Liefrange, just outside of the town where the rivers Dirbech and Sûre connect.

Here is more information about swimming in the Upper Sûre Lake and the various water sports you can take part in!

Address: N27, L-9650, Esch-sur-Sûre

Château Esch-Sur-Sûre

A lot of the town is built on castle ruins. This is another great castle to explore in Luxembourg to learn more about the history of the area! At night the castle is beautifully lit up and is definitely worth a visit. Guided tours are available.

Address: Rue de Lultzhausen, L-9650, Esch-sur-Sûre

Tourist Center – Cloth Factory and small museum

The tourist office is also home to the old cloth factory. In Esch-sur-Sûre, a weaving guild already existed in the 16th century, so that the origin of the factory goes hand-in-hand with the invention of the first wool machines. You can discover carefully restored machines and even see them in action during guide tours (which are available on request).

Since the Old Cloth Factory also doubles as the Tourist Office, you can also talk to experts to learn more about what to see and do in Sûre as well as shop the boutique products for a souvenir or 2! They sell exclusive wool fabrics that are again today produced on the Museum’s machines. What a cool gift or addition to your home.
