WILTZ – Wiltz

Wiltz is a small city in northern Luxembourg, capital of the canton Wiltz. The upper-town with the castle of the former counts of Wiltz stands high on a plateau and its slopes. The lower-town extends in a wide valley to both banks of the river Wiltz. A walk through the town leads along stone-crosses which remember the plague (decanal church) and the feudal justice of former times (cross of justice from 1502). It is home to a medieval castle and, adjacent to it, an open-air amphitheater where a theater festival is held each year. Other sites of interest relate to the harsh impact of World War II – the National Monument to the General Strike of 1942 and the Battle of the Bulge museum. The town is also well-known for its excellent beer. In the former stables of the Castle, the National Brewery Museum with its micro-brewery will move the hearts of collectors and beer-lovers.
