Winter Road Trip - Chateau Miranda - Luxembourg - Trier

This Holdiday Season I was on a road trip from Holland via Belgium(Chateau Miranda) and Luxembourg to Trier. Hope you like my photo's.


First stop is Chateau Miranda in the Belgian Ardennes, it is a is a 19th century castle built in 1866. In World War II, it was taken over by the National Railway Company of Belgium as an orphanage. It remained a facility for the use of children until 1980. It has stood empty since 1991
