Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

Luxembourg is that tiny European country squashed in between Belgium, France and Germany. Being only a 3.5 hour drive from Lille, it’s difficult to find an excuse not to check another new country off the list. So, three of us decided to venture across Belgium and into Luxembourg via Cice Voyages last Saturday afternoon in order to check out its capital.

Luxembourg City is small, but lively. It is multilingual, modern, and posh. Moreover, the Old City is a UNESCO World Heritage site, with modern buildings alongside ancient fortresses and architecture.

Le Chemin de la Corniche, also known as “Europe’s most beautiful balcony” is the main walk in the historical city center. The other main attractions include Casemates du Bock (a labyrinth of defensive passageways), Notre Dame Cathedral, and Grand Duke Palace.  However, I must admit that my favorite parts of the day included lounging and people-watching in the various parks, enjoying the abundance of sunshine!














Have you ever been to Luxembourg?

  1. Also doesn’t Amazon have a huge office there or something? The only reason I ask is because I work for an Amazon owned company and I remember reading somewhere they had a huge center in Luxembourg.

  2. I go roughly every second weekend, but only rarely into the city. I was surprised how green it was the first time I visited! That and the different “levels” with the plateaux and valleys make it very pretty I think.

  3. I’ve been to rest stops in Luxembourg (including a Burger King!). Does that count? In all seriousness, we drive by Luxembourg City every time we go to/from J’s parents. One day, we must stop.

    1. haha yes! totally counts! You should stop! you really don’t need more than a couple of hours, could be a nice way to break up your trip down to the alps 🙂

Let me know what you think!
