Why Travel Luxembourg ?

 

Luxembourg is a tiny European country, bordered by Belgium, France and Germany. It’s mostly rural, with dense Ardennes forest and nature parks in the north, and the Moselle river valley in the southeast. The rocky gorges of the eastern Mullerthal region earned it the nickname “Little Switzerland.” Its capital, Luxembourg City, is famed for its fortified medieval old town perched on sheer cliffs.

 

You could roam and explore the scenic beauty and quiet of the Ardennes region, referred to locally as Eisléck. The area consists of forested plateaux, wooded hills and lush valleys. Or could visit breweries and sample more of the region's alcoholic produce in the towns of Bascharage and Wiltz.

 

In the medieval market town of Clervaux, a 12th-century castle awaits your visit. For culture lovers, capital's numerous galleries and museums including highlights like the National Museum of Natural History, the National Museum of History and Art and the Museum of the City of Luxembourg could be your true delight. On way back, you could wine and dine al fresco in Luxembourg City's charming main square, the Place d'Armes.

 

Discover the delightful old centre of the capital, Luxembourg City. See the grand squares and winding, cobblestone streets. Visit the underground tunnels, known as casemates, and hop on the special open-air tourist train through the Pétrusse Valley. See the changing of the guard at the Palais Grand Ducal, the Grand Duke's official residence, which can also be toured in July and August. Other attractions in the city include the Place Guillaume II (also called Knuedler), its twice-weekly market (Wednesday and Saturday); and the 17th-century Notre Dame Cathedral.

 

Alternatively, you could harness up and go rock climbing; there are some good ascents and facilities available near Berdorf in the Müllerthal region or splash out on some water sports: located within the Upper Sûre National Park (an area of outstanding beauty) is the country's drinking water reservoir, where a barrage dam (the Staudamm) has created a beautiful lake.

 

For upmarket fashion goods and accessories, Grand Rue in central Luxembourg City has a number of internationally renowned designer label stores. The largest shopping mall in the city is the Auchan Mall on Plateau du Kirchberg, with more than 60 shops selling the full range of goods. Belval Plaza in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg’s second-largest city, is another very large shopping mall.
