Cloth factory museum of Esch-sur-Sûre (Nature Park Center)

Esch-sur-Sûre

Since the 16th century, the village of Esch-sur-Sûre has been known for its weavers’ guilds. In 1807, the foundations of the textile factory were laid. From 1992 to 1995, the old textile machines were restored and today, the visitors can discover the entire process of fabric weaving, from wool to finished fabric.
