Overview to Luxembourg: Travel Guide and Tourist Information


Despite its diminutive size and decidedly quaint feel, Luxembourg is a surprisingly rewarding place to visit. It isn’t a place for bright lights and thumping beats, but it is hard to beat in terms of good scenery and relaxing ambience.

Perhaps inevitably, Luxembourg City draws the majority of the country’s visitors. A splendid place set on the banks of dramatic canyons that plunge down towards the confluence of two rivers, Luxembourg City is one of Europe’s most unexpectedly beautiful cities.

The Old Town (to the north of the Petrusse Valley) is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage site. And the way to get the most out of the city is to soak up its eminently tranquil atmosphere with a spot of people-watching from a café in the Place D’Armes.

The Musée National d’Histoire et d’Art and impressive neo-Gothic Cathedral sit just a few blocks away. In between the southern and northern parts of the city, meanwhile, the huge ruin of the Citadelle du St-Esprit makes for fascinating exploring.

Away from Luxembourg City, central and southern Luxembourg are comprised of largely wooded expanses of pleasantly rolling countryside. whilst the north is characterized by much of the same, with some notable sandstone rock formations thrown in for good measure.
