Medieval Castle

The knights' castle of Beaufort was built during three different construction periods between 1150 and 1650. Walter from Wiltz was the first lord of Beaufort. After the second half of the 18th century it had been uninhabited for a long time and was used as a quarry by the residents of the surroundings.

Since 1928, the new owner of the castle, Edmond Linckels, started to make large repair and cleaning works in the castle ruins which had been neglected and not inhabited for 300 years and opened it to the public in 1932.

In 1988 the site was classified as an historical monument

Renaissance castle

Since its construction more than 360 years ago and apart from a few additions and modifications during the last centuries, Beaufort Renaissance castle has never suffered damage and has remained basically unchanged.

The Renaissance castle of Beaufort was built by a major Luxembourger, Jean Baron de Beck. Born in 1588 in Luxembourg-Grund Jean Beck was the son of a riding messenger of the Luxembourg Provincial Council from Saarburg in Lorraine and departed from a humble background to make a fantastic military career.
