Visit Luxembourg

Luxembourg may have had a tumultuous existence in the past thanks to its location near Germany, France, and Belgium, but that has made the present quite flexible to meet your needs with a visit.

You’ll discover vibrant culinary opportunities, rocky spires that call for a day of trekking, and historic ramparts which speak of the nation’s history all awaiting your visit to this beautiful nation.

Luxembourg Is a Bicycling Wonderland

With hundreds of kilometers of dedicated bicycle paths, including many within Luxembourg City, you can go on a cycling tour to see the essentials of this nation quickly and safely. Need to go a longer distance? Hop onto a train with your bike because they’ll take it along for free. Cycling is a way of life in Luxembourg and you are more than invited to participate in any way, shape, or form during your stay.

Masterpieces From the 10th Century

Take the Wenzel Walk through Luxembourg City will allow you to see some of the old cobbled streets, ancient fortresses, and bustling squares that define the heart of this nation. Go outside the urban centers to see additional medieval masterpieces like Vianden Castle and the fairy tale vistas that spill out before your eyes. There are ramparts and spires, both natural and man-made, which can be seen around nearly every corner.

Your Favorite Activities Are Waiting

A visit to Mondorf-les-Bains allows you to visit the nation’s only casino. You can also choose to tour the Moselle vineyards or take advantage of the relaxing properties offered by the local thermal springs. From a long day at a spa to a long day of sampling wines, you relax as long as you want when you visit Luxembourg. Who wouldn’t want a long massage after a long day of seeing all of this nation’s sights?

The history of Europe is proudly on display throughout Luxembourg in a variety of ways. Whether it is the outdoor adventures, cultural opportunities, or the chance to relax with an algae wrap, you’ll find the perfect experience is awaiting you.

Best of Luxembourg

At just 2,586 square kilometres in size and with a population slightly more than half a million people, Luxembourg is among the smallest nations in Europe. Located in the centre of the multi-nation continent, and surrounded by Germany to the east, France to the south and Belgium to the west and north, Luxembourg is the only Grand Dutchy in the world, with a constitutional monarch as its head of state. Despite its tiny size, the country has the second highest gross producer of products in the world, after Qatar, and has long and rich culture and traditions, which visitors can experience on their Luxembourg holidays.

Luxembourg City is the capital of the country, located in the south, and a great place to base yourself for your stay. It’s a natural choice as the only international airport, Luxembourg Findel Airport, is located just 6km away. There’s lots of sights and culture to enjoy in the capital. Altogether there are 12 cities in Luxembourg, and they include Diekirch in the northeast, lying on the banks of the Sauer river; Grevenmacher in the east and near to the border with Germany; and Esch-sur-Alzette in the southwest, 15km from the capital. The picturesque town of Petange in the southwest is also a good choice of place to stay for your Luxembourg holidays.

The climate in Luxembourg is temperate, meaning there’s no extremes in the weather. Summers are cool, averaging highs of around 17C, and winters are mild.

As you’re in what’s officially called the Grand Dutchy of Luxembourg, a good way to start off your Luxembourg holidays is to have a look at where the grand duke lives – at Grand-Ducal Palace in Luxembourg City. This large and imposing building started life as the country’s first city hall, all the way back in 1572. Guided tours of the interior are available, but only during the summer months.

Also in the capital is the splendid sight of Notre-Dame Cathedral. This large Roman Catholic church features Gothic architecture and dates back to 1613. In its cemetery is a version of the famous sculpture The Political Prisoner, by the late Luxembourgish sculptor Lucien Wercollier.

The entirety of Luxembourgian history is represented and on display at the National Museum of History and Art in the capital, and is certainly worth a visit. For more history and culture, visit Neumunster Abbey in Luxembourg City, which has a cultural centre.

Walking tours and hiking are a popular way to experience the verdant countryside. There are dozens of walks and trails all over the country, such as the 1944-1945 Remembrance Walk, the Barefoot Path – done without shoes, or socks, to get a feel of the earth beneath you – as well as many more.

Fort Thüngen in Luxembourg City is an impressive sight and is located in Drai Eechelen Park. Much of it was demolished in the 1800s but was reconstructed in the 1990s. It’s known locally as the Three Acorns, due to the presence of acorns atop the fort’s three towers.

Luxembourg produces some excellent wines, mainly from vineyards in the southern regions. Try some, along with the country’s delicious dishes.
