This weekend, with the sun still shining albeit on an occasional basis now as we head into Autumn, we drove up to the north east of Luxembourg to a tiny village called Stolzembourg situated next to the river which forms a natural boundary between Luxembourg and Germany. The village has a museum of copper mining and it is possible to visit the old copper mines which date back to the 1850’s as well as follow a geology-themed footpath on the wooded hillside.
The bell tower in the village dates back to before 1585. There has been a castle here since the fifteenth century although the existing castle only dates back to 1898 when the original castle was rebuilt as a Scottish castle. It is now privately owned and makes a delightful exhibition space for paintings and floral creations. For the last ten years this village has hosted a plant fair providing an opportunity to purchase less common plants, pick up a floral arrangement or two or a piece of garden sculpture and sample some culinary delights.Entrance “tickets” to the fair were packets of wild flower seeds.
