A fascinating history
The origin of the current castle dates back over 300 years, when it was built on the vestiges of a building dating back to the 13th century.
During the Second World War, the castle was by turn a command post and a field hospital, thus undergoing many and very extensive damages.
Abandoned on the liberation of Luxembourg, the castle disappeared little by little in an engulfing vegetation as well as in the memory of the inhabitants.
In 2005, Freddy Lodomez, a passionate entrepreneur, literally fell in love and decided to fully restore this significant building heritage of Luxembourg.
The restoration work will last 3 long years during which hundred of artisans will work tirelessly to restore the castle to its yesteryear’s glory and beauty.
The present hotel started officially in October 2008, after the official classification as “a National Monument of Luxembourg” by the Government of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
Constantly evolving, the Urspelt Castle was notably expanded in 2016 with the addition of a 1800 m² wing, responding to the major demand for this unique hotel project.
DEEP RESPECT FOR THE HERITAGE
