More info on tim-tense.com
While driving through the Grand Dutchy of Luxemburg I saw the sign of La Vallée des sept châteaux (or the valley of the 7 castles) many times, now as I'm a fan of castles, I wanted to visit the trail for sure.
We didn't end up hiking the trail but instead we visited all castles with the car. Well actually almost all the castles, you'll see in the video why.
This link contains a map that contains all the castles with their GPS locations:

LUXEMBOURG: Clervaux town
Clervaux is a small town, set in the narrow valley of the river Klierf and surrounded by wood covered hills.
The Family of Man, a famous exhibit of photos collected by Edward Steichen, is on permanent display at the Castle of Clervaux. The castle was built in the 12th century.
The Clervaux castle now houses the offices of the local government, the reception of the Syndicat d'Initiative (local Tourist Office), a collection of models of Luxembourg's old fortified castles, and a small war museum exhibiting weapons and souvenirs from the 1944-1945 Ardennes offensive (Battle of the Bulge).
Several walking trails have origin and end in or near Clervaux.

LUXEMBOURG - Travel Guide | Around The World
The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (Luxembourgish: Groussherzogtum Lëtzebuerg, French:Grand-Duché de Luxembourg, German: Großherzogtum Luxemburg), is a landlocked country in the Benelux bordered by Belgium, France and Germany which lies at the crossroads of Germanic and Latin cultures. It is the only Grand Duchy in the world and is the second-smallest of the European Union member states.
With a successful steel, finance and high technology industry, a strategic location at the heart of Western Europe, more natural beauty than you might expect given its size, and as one of the three richest countries in the world, Luxembourg enjoys a very high standard of living - and has prices to match!
The city of Luxembourg proper was founded in 963, and its strategic position soon promised it a great fate. Luxembourg was at the crossroads of Western Europe and became heavily fortified, and you can still see the extensive city walls and towers which are the most distinctive aspect of the cityscape. Due to its key position, Luxembourg was raised up to a Duchy that included a much larger territory that stretched into present-day Belgium, Netherlands, Germany and France. The powerful Habsburg family kept its hands on it until late Renaissance times.
Luxembourg-Findel International Airport (IATA: LUX) is 6km outside Luxembourg-City. Easily accessible from the city centre via the cheap (€2 single or €4 for a day ticket valid on almost all buses and trains in the country
Luxembourg is a compact country and it's possible to reach almost any place in the country from the capital in under an hour. The central railway station has a handy Mobilitéit office that will help to plan your trip with bus and train.
You may not expect it from one of the smallest countries in Europe, but The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a diverse land, full of beautiful nature and gorgeous historic monuments. Its turbulent history is filled with stories of emperors and counts as well as many battles and disputes. Today, the almost fairy-tale like castles and fortresses are a faint but impressive reminder of those days, and amidst their lovely natural setting, they make some superb and picturesque sights.
Most of the country's population lives in rural areas and apart from the delightful historic City of Luxembourg, the country's capital, settlements are mostly small. That said, the capital is a place not to be missed. It has a splendid location high on a cliff, overlooking the deep and narrow valleys of both the Alzette and Pétrusse rivers. Several parts of the old town are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and the most interesting places include the Gothic Revival Cathedral of Notre Dame, the town fortifications and of course the Grand Ducal Palace, which is surrounded by charming cobblestoned lanes. However, there's far more to see, such as the Bock casemates, Neumünster Abbey and the Place d'Armes. There are several World War II memorial sites and a number of high-end museums, but just wandering through the old centre, taking in the beautiful views from the Chemin de la Corniche and crossing bridges to the nearest plateaus is at least as great a way to discover the city.
The lively town of Echternach is the oldest city in Luxembourg. It boasts the country's most prominent religious structure, the basilica of the Abbey of Echternach where the country's patron saint Willibrord is buried. The annual Whit Tuesday celebrations in his honour involve lots of dancers in the towns old centre and are a popular tourist attraction. The Apart from its own sights, Echternach makes a great base to explore the beautiful Müllerthal, better known as Little Switzerland. Hike or bike through its dense forests with myriad streams and even some caves.
The romantic village of Vianden with its stunning medieval Beaufort castle is a tourists' favourite, and well worth a visit even despite the crowds in summer. The beautiful location of the fortress in the Our river valley, surrounded by tight forests and a lake with swans, gives it a typical fairy-tale castle look and feel. If you're done wandering the streets and exploring the Gothic churches an fortified towers of this charming town, visit the Victor Hugo house. Afterwards, the pleasant cafés of the Grand Rue are a perfect place to kick back and enjoy.
Head to Remich to start your own trip down the Route du Vin and discover the many fine wines that are produced here, in the Moselle Valley.
The Luxembourg white wines from the Moselle valley to the east of Luxembourg include Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Rivaner and Elbling to name just a few and are good. In autumn, many villages along the Moselle river organise wine-tasting village festivals.

1100년 초기에 작은 성으로 시작하여 두 번에 걸쳐 확장된 보포르 성이다. 그 후 여러 번 성주가 바뀌었다고 한다. 그 당시 성안에 있는 감옥이다. 감옥 안에는 아직도 녹슨 쇠사슬이 남아 있었는데 죄수의 다리를 묶은데 사용된 것이었다. 성은 암반 위에 세웠음을 알 수 있다. 성은 유구한 세월이 흘러 이제 곱게 빛바래 가고 있다. 이성의 주인들은 다 어디로 갔을까?

Luxembourg Things to do
If you're looking for things to do in Luxembourg, check this video out. I did a quick 2 day trip through the tiny, but beautiful country of Luxembourg.
Luxembourg is a beautiful, tiny country where the cultures of France and Germany come together. It's the last remaining Grand Duchy in the world.
It's an amazing country to drive through. Small winding roads, and the driving laws are very similar to German. The majority of people overlook it during their travels in Europe. I think that's a big mistake.
Viaden is the most well known castle in Luxembourg. It is absolutly gorgeous. The admission fee is low, and you will see from the video that there is even a bar. A chance to have a drink in such an old building should not be misssed.
