“Nicely refurbished lighthouse”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

It seemed odd that the old lighthouse was so far from the water, but there is a current lighthouse on the water. It's actually in a neighborhood and it's a nicely refurbished building that is open to the public on weekends. It doesn't cost much and has lots of interesting artifacts, plus you can climb the tower. The tower itself is kind of a miracle. It had been missing and was restored by the Luxembourg government. I heard the story at the Luxembourg museum in Belgium WI and had to come and see it for myself. Interesting history.
