A unique MICE experience for your guests
Impress clients, partners, and staff by hosting your next event in one of Luxembourg’s historic castles. There are plenty of options for conferences, meetings, away-days, and networking events. Choose between historic venues close to the capital and major transport links, or venues set deep in dramatic countryside.
Luxembourg’s modern conference centres and hotels are often the first option, but why not try a location with a distinctive historical flavour? Whether it’s a fortresses dating back to the 11th century, or stately homes from the more recent past, you have an interesting choice of atmospheric places which will inspire your guests. Needless to say, these venues have been fully renovated and are equipped with modern facilities, including catering. Here are just four examples.
Historians trace the first reference to Bourglinster Castle to 1098, and this fortified aristocratic home was caught up in the turmoil of medieval and early modern Europe. Despite having been partially destroyed on a number of occasions, it has been lovingly restored to maintain its special historical atmosphere. Just a quarter of an hour from the capital, the castle can accommodate 120 people for a sit-down conference, perhaps accompanied by a gourmet meal. For a stand-up cocktail, there is room for 600, including on the balcony overlooking the impressive Ernz river valley.
The Château de Septfontaines is a late-baroque stately home built by the Boch industrial family in the late 1700s. Set in impressive, extensive grounds in Luxembourg City, it is particularly well suited to large events of up to 500 guests, including gala dinners, cocktails, and concerts. It also has a choice of rooms ideal for sit-down meetings of 10 to 120 people.
Alternatively bring your guests to the “Valley of the Seven Castles” which is less than half an hour from the capital. Ansembourg Castle is one of these seven, and is set in 200 hectares of woods and meadows. It has been totally renovated and can host large meetings and events with up to 250 people seated. Also on the grounds is the Temps d’Or luxury hotel which is available for smaller gatherings of up to a dozen people.
Alternatively, go deep into the Ardennes forest to find the Château d’Urspelt. This venue caters for prestige events of all sizes, and it also offers 55 hotel rooms. While this venue takes you into Luxembourg’s most spectacular countryside, it is less than an hour away from the capital, and is equipped with abundant parking space.
