Some tourist travel tips for Luxembourg

As long as you arrange your time strictly, Saturday and Sunday you will be able to explore the most interesting sights in the Duchy – one of the smallest sovereign countries in Europe.

An incredibly picturesque little neighbourhood, cut deep into a ravine, and some of the stone houses are built directly into rocky surfaces. Highlights include a fifteenth-century bridge, ancient stone fortifications, terraced gardens and vineyards, a satisfying assortment of pubs and restaurants, a miniature golf course and a miniature train (for miniature passengers).

Bock Fortress and Underground Tunnels (Casemates du Bock)

The massive rock reveals the so-called Le Bock, which forms the eastern side of the fortress of the city of Bock, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The first fortification was made during the Roman Empire – a vast network of underground tunnels was dug in which the population could hide during wars and sieges.

Le Chemin de la Corniche

This pedestrian walkway was built on the fortifications along the eastern side of the fortress city. La Conechet is also known as the most beautiful balcony in Europe.

Palais Gran Ducal

The monarch spends most of his nights at a provincial castle, but the palace remains his official residence, located right in the city center and open to tourists during the summer.

The Musel River Valley

The river flows through Luxembourg in its middle reaches. Vineyards are being cultivated along the valley … You immediately remembered that it was probably a famous wine cellar with many cellars, right? Therefore, this destination is a must-stop for quality wine connoisseurs!
