"A weekend getaway" Larochette by dlandt

Larochette Travel Guide: 21 reviews and 74 photos


Larochette is a small town in Luxembourg, close to the German border. On a hilltop stands the ruins of an old castle, beautifully lit at night. More than anything, this place reminds me of Switzerland and a few mountain retreats I have been to in the US. There are various things to do in the area, kayaking and canoeing, horseback riding, etc., but not all year long. The castle, I found to my chagrin, doesn't open until after Easter, but would probably have been a nice hike and good view. There are a good assortment of restaurants in town.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Small, charming, cheap, clean
  • Cons:Might be too small for long stays
  • In a nutshell:Have a great wekend, but no longer
