Luxembourg City Guide

Luxembourg may only be small but it manages to fit a lot into the Grand Duchy. The capital, Luxembourg City, is a hotbed of business and commerce, and also contains the UNESCO-protected historic quarter, where visitors will find remnants of the city’s centuries-old fortifications. Head out of the city to visit some of Europe’s idyllic countryside, from the forested valleys of the Ardennes region to the vineyard-covered hills of the Moselle valley.

Luxembourg City is abuzz with business travellers on their way to appointments at the European Court of Law or the European Investment Bank. But it isn’t just all the parliamentary conferences and business that attracts people to the city as many tourists come for the history. Its historic quarter was the location of the city’s fortress, Europe’s most important stronghold thanks to its spot between the Holy Roman Empire and France. Though it was demolished in the mid 19th century, the fort at Dräi Eechelen has been renovated and now houses a museum dedicated to the story of the city and its once prized fortress.

Luxembourg is known for its rural regions which offer outdoor and sports enthusiasts a variety of activities. Walking trails lead through the Ardennes’ nature parks, and many history buffs choose this area because of its many restored castles.

In Mullerthal, Echternacht is not only Luxembourg’s oldest city but also where you’ll find the large Echternach lake. A popular leisure lake, visitors can hire pedalos, try their hand at angling and have a go at water skiing.

The Moselle Valley has gained an international reputation for its wines but is also popular with outdoor enthusiasts and especially cyclists and walkers wanting to take the wine route between vineyards. The area is also closely linked to the EU and is the location of the European Museum Schengen.

Luxembourg’s peak season is from May until September when tourists head to the country for its warm sunny summers, perfect for making the most of its outdoor opportunities. Many people also come for the winter months when ski resorts in the Ardennes open and Luxembourg City holds its renowned Winterlights Festival. Whatever the season, flights and hotels can be slightly more expensive during the week, which is when business travellers arrive for corporate engagements.

There’s plenty to keep kids entertained in Luxembourg, from exploring the underground Bock Casemates in Luxembourg City to running around the fairytale forest at Parc Merveilleux Bettembourg near the town of Esch-sur-Alzette. In the Moselle valley, kids can meet lots of creatures at the Butterfly Garden in Grevenmacher and Wasserbillig’s large aquarium. The whole family will enjoy the charming steam train that connects Petange and Fond-de-Gras in the Red Rocks region.

Most restaurants across Luxembourg offer children’s menus. There are even a handful of high-end eateries in Luxembourg City that welcome children during the lunchtime service, but it’s always best to check ahead regarding evening meals.
