Luxembourg City

Our full day of sightseeing Luxembourg was very successful. Walking from one end of the old town to the other takes only 5 minutes and walking across the ‘viaduct’ to get to the business district only takes 15 minutes. Despite the fact that it’s a small city, we still managed to get lost a few times.

We strolled through The Grund, found in the crevice of the valley below the centre of Luxembourg City. It is found on the banks of the Alzette River.

Lucky for us we discovered a lift that can take you from the bottom of the valley back to the city. The lift stops right outside Luxembourg’s legal precinct.

We walked in the totally wrong direction to get to our next destination, but finally got to the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Notre-Dame Cathedral is the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Luxembourg City, but actually used to be a Jesuit church.

Travelling Europe in Spring is magical. Luxembourg City has plenty of blossom trees scattered around the city and the pink-white colour is so vibrant and pretty!

After strolling a little on the outskirts of the main city we discovered the gorgeous Parc Municipal. There are beautiful flowers blooming and a big field where we found many young people hanging about enjoying the sunshine.

I believe we had a very successful day, we even managed to squeeze in the Museum of Art and History and end the night with a scrumptious meal served by the funniest Italian waiter I have ever encountered.

I would definitely recommend Brasserie du Cercle as a dinner destination when in Luxembourg. Nutella crepes are heavenly!
