Luxembourg City Holidays

Hardly any other European capital city serves up such an impressive array of contrasts as Luxembourg. In the course of its history, spanning more than a thousand years, the city has grown from “Lucilinburhuc”, the seat of Siegfried, the first Count of Luxembourg, to the prosperous metropolis it is today. In between lie centuries of turbulent ... Read more

A gorgeous city and one of Europe's most dramatically situated, Luxembourg City makes a nice stop in between the cities of Belgium and the German wine country. Plus, you get the novelty of visiting one of Europe's smallest state. But understand that the country, The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, is more than just Luxembourg City. Although its capital city makes for a great introduction. Luxembourg has a long history and the city has been one of the most-fortified on the continent. One of the most enjoyable things to do in Luxembourg is simply walking along the Corniche to view both the upper and lower towns. Pick up the excellent-value Luxembourg card which allows entry to all museums and onto all public transportation throughout the whole of the Grand Duchy. If you have only a few hours, the Tourist information Center distributes fee maps and a recommended two-hour self-guided city walk.

Picturesque and serene. Luxembourg lies in a very beautiful river valley which can make for some spectacular pictures. However, it is pretty small, and doesn't have a whole lot to do. It is really ideal for a day visit.


A pretty odd spot. I had a both warm and fun times, and some really disconcerting negative experiences here in just a few days.

There is a lot of history and european grandeur built into the structure of Luxembourg - litterally. There are some seriously old walls and structures here. It is beautiful. The efforts to regain the Luxembourgish language is interesting as well.

The food is fantastic, a great confluence of the neighboring countries. There are some fun bars here as well.

This would be a great place to be rich.


Take your time walking through the lower city and exploring the back alleys.


Little country, little city, really multicultural, seat of some important european institutions

I only passed through Luxembourg on my way to Belgium so I didn't get to see much. Luxembourg City was clean, beautiful, and full of smartly dressed people going about whatever Luxembourg does. Lunch wasn't bad, but I don't remember much of it.


The country itself is about the same size as Atlanta Georgia or New York City (geographical coverage) and many people outside Europe are probably not aware of Luxembourg's existence, but Luxembourg City offers similar attractions as well known European cities: history, great shopping, and diverse cuisines. The most popular landmark in this city is the historic castle ruins that surround the old village area.

A really lovely country. I saw the Dukes palace and the American War Cemtery where General is buried. Quite moving.


Was a nice city, clean with cool looking streets and buildings. Surrounding area was pretty nice as well.
