3 Star Hotels in Luxembourg
In the Gare Quartier, south of Luxembourg City’s River Pétrusse, is a comfortable selection of three-star hotels, but mid-range hotels don’t stop there. From the heart of Luxembourg City to Ardennes on the Belgian border in the north and to Les Moselles wine region in the east, there are affordable places to stay scattered across the only Grand Duchy left in the world.
Hotel Hopping in Luxembourg
Public transport across Luxembourg is extremely cheap, opening this historically powerful country up to anyone who wants to explore it. With affordable three-star hotels in some of the most beautiful parts of the country, some nestled in woods beside rivers, others with spas or steps away from world famous attractions, Luxembourg is your oyster for wine tours, walking tours, hikes through history and some remarkable scenery. A couple hours north of Luxembourg City is Clervaux Castle and the UNESCO-listed Family of Man photography exhibit, with three-star hotels close by.
Exploring Luxembourg City on Foot
Luxembourg City’s three-star hotels make the ideal base for exploring this surprisingly walkable town. Despite the hilly surroundings, you won’t be climbing every five minutes – viaducts cross the gorge the runs through the city, creating flat links between the various quarters.
With a third of the city covered in green, you’ll quickly forget that you’re in one of the most powerful capitals in Europe, home to the European Court of Justice. The Wenzel circular walk takes in spectacular views from the Bock Promontory and along the Chemin de la Corniche and down to Grund, walking you through centuries of history and vast panoramic views in a couple of hours. Or you could leave Luxembourg City behind and take a hotel in Mullerthal, Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland, which heaves with hiking, walking and biking trails to suit everyone.
Luxembourg’s mid-range hotels blend elegance and comfort with affordability and great locations, offering brilliant bases from which to explore both the city and the countryside. Once you’ve got a flavour of Luxembourg’s culture and countryside, you’ll start to see how such a small country has maintained power for so many centuries.
