The village of Guirsch

Guirsch, a listed village

Guirsch is one of the most beautiful villages in the municipality of Arlon. Its center is listed. You can enjoy wonderful strolls through this charming little village, with its well-preserved architectural heritage… Guirsch has just joined the ranks of the “most beautiful villages in Wallonia”.

Château de Guirsch

The current château dates back to 1749, and was further extended in the 19th century. It’s an imposing building, backing onto vast wooded parkland and a French-style formal garden. It is privately owned and therefore not open to the public.

The former novitiate

In Guirsch, you can find a former novitiate (a place used to house religious novices). It was home to the sisters of Notre-Dame d’Arlon. Behind the 19th-century building are a number of outbuildings.

Saint-Willibrord Chapel

At the entrance to the village, you’ll find Saint-Willibrord Chapel. The vaulted choir of the current building dates back to 1697. The nave was enlarged between 1838 and 1840, while the windows date back to 1910. This location offers an incredible panoramic view.

Walking in Guirsch

A signposted loop takes you through this charming, typical village in the province of Luxembourg, passing through the listed village center, where you can admire the architectural heritage. Then, you’ll follow the path through the beautiful deciduous forest to the Vallée des Trois Moulins. A walk that you certainly won’t regret!
