Luxembourg: Hollenfels, Ansembourg, Hunnebour and Mersch

Luxembourg is an important stopover on the autoroute towards the south: France, Spain or Portugal. Especially because Luxembourg has traditionally charged lower excise duties than the Netherlands for many years. But many holidaymakers do not bother to get to know the country. That’s a shame, because Luxembourg offers something for everyone: you can have a sporting holiday with canoeing, walking or cycling through nature, go shopping in Luxembourg city, visit castles or visit picturesque towns such as Echernach and Larochette. We zoom in on Hollenfels and the surrounding area. In Hollenfels you can stay in a holiday home or a youth hostel, for a quiet holiday in a small village with lots of nature. For nature lovers who love peace and quiet. The village has no hotel and no campsite.

Hollenfels

The village

Hollenfels is a village in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The village is located in the municipality of Tuntange in the canton of Mersch. 238 people live there (reference year: 2005). The village is best known for its castle, Hollenfels Castle, which now serves as an ecological center and against which a youth hostel was built after the Second World War. Adults can also stay there in a private room with bunk beds (http://youthhostels.lu/en). The village has one restaurant where you can get a delicious meal from about 10 euros. Hollenfels is a suitable village, especially for hikers and cyclists, to stay for one or more weeks. Running can be a challenge because of the hilly landscape and with a bit of luck you may encounter a fox crossing the road. You see many cyclists on the road in this area.
From Hollenfels you can easily make trips to, for example, the city of Luxembourg or tourist towns such as Echternach, Larochette, Vianden or Clervaux, sights or nature reserves. People who do not have a car can use public transport. There is a bus connection between Hollenfels and Mersch and Luxembourg City.

Holiday homes in Hollenfels

The village does not have a hotel or a campsite, but you can rent private holiday homes via, for example, ‘www.letzeburg.nl’. Through this provider you can rent a detached, simple, but neatly furnished chalet on a separate part of a farm. There are a lot of flies in the summer, but that shouldn’t spoil the fun. From the balcony you have a beautiful view of Hollenfels Castle and the valley. The chalet has a sheltered garden at the right rear (where you could have a barbecue) with swings.
