Spending the Day in Luxembourg City

Luxembourg is the capital of the small European country of the same name. To avoid confusion it's often called Luxembourg City. The country borders Belgium, Germany, & France so it's the ideal destination if you're heading to any of those places on your trip. The city is known for its medieval fortifications & is one of the largest fortresses of modern Europe. Pretty cool, huh?

Luxembourg is a city full of history & beauty. I only spent the day there but was able to experience enough to whet my appetite. It was a sweltering day -- the kind of hotness that leaves you sticky & uncomfortable. Humid. It was so different compared to the influx of rainy & cloudy days spent in Copenhagen & Amsterdam.

I viewed several of Luxembourg's most well known sights. The Cathédrale Notre-Dame  (Notre Dame Cathedral) is the only cathedral in Luxembourg. It's a beautiful church with Gothic architecture & really cool door handles.  It's quaint but definitely worth a look see. The Monument National de la Solidarité also known as the Monument to National Unity is centrally located with a golden woman atop the long column; it's also a popular tourist destination. You'll find a crowd of people around it taking photos.

Le Chemin de la Corniche is a must see because it overlooks the old city; that was probably my most favorite thing in Luxembourg -- being able to witness so much history in one spot. I'd recommend spending one to two days in Luxembourg if you're making a visit. It's the perfect amount of time so you can enjoy all the sites without feeling overwhelmed.

I was ultra excited by the amount of bakeries & scrumptious, colorful goodies. I mean seriously. They're mouthwateringly beautiful. They're so magnificent that they're almost too pretty to eat. Almost. I definitely ate my fair share of pastries. But can you really blame me?

Have you ever been to Luxembourg? Do you have any tips on how to spend the day there? :]

  14. Hehe Luxembourg is so small that people who are not from Europe never know it's an independent little country. The other day here on Australian TV someone said Luxembourh is a city in Germany haha ;)
    Anyway, I haven't been there in ages and now that I see your photos I think I should really visit it again when I'm back in Germany.
    Thanks for the lovely pictures! :)
