Luxembourg may be a landlocked European minnow, but its capital is a multilingual, multicultural and multifaceted melting pot: from full-flavoured French-tinged cuisine, to the Flemish Renaissance-style Grand Duc Palace and German-Alpine charm of the Grund neighbourhood. Give it a whirl!

Welcome to high society. This historic district is home to the Grand Duke of Luxembourg himself. Swing by the 16th-century Grand Ducal Palace and snap a pic in front of its ornate Flemish Renaissance-style facade. In gourmet hotspot Le Clairefontaine, dine like royalty on fattened hens and wild hare. Then party with the in-crowd at hip Club Dqlic.Accommodations in Ville Haute
By day, leafy Limpertsberg is peopled by professorial types that whizz about the palatial University of Luxembourg. At night, they flock to the Grand Théâtre for modern opera and ballet. Amid all this pomp, be sure to visit Lucien Wercollier’s “Political Prisoner” statue in Notre-Dame Cemetery – it commemorates the lost Luxembourgers of WWII.Accommodations in Limpertsberg
What a banker! Nothing symbolises this glassed-in corporate quarter more than the “Giant Banker” statue on Avenue JFK. Start here and wander amid sharp-suited go-getters that zip to and from the European Investment Bank. Join financial big-wigs for after-work cocktails in glammy Gloss Bar. Then tuck into tasty truffle at chic, chandeliered Le Sud.Accommodations in Kirchberg
Creative and sociable, Alex loved making new friends on a tour of Luxembourg City.
This official walking tour is a cool way to get to know the city. I was really impressed with our guide, who kept me hooked for the entire four hours with knowledge and trivia – all in two languages! German/French tours leave at 12:00, while German/English tours start at 14:00.Accommodations nearby
Luxembourg is an ideal weekend getaway for Brussels-based Soléne, who says she’s a nomad at heart.
Luxembourg was founded in the 10th century with the construction of Bock Fortress. Today the castle lies in ruins, but the 17 km of tunnels beneath it are open to the public. You can wander past Medieval ammunition stores and right to the cliff edge for picture-perfect views of the city.Accommodations nearby
A lover of trendy bars and PlayStation sessions, Jamie has lived in 8 different countries so far.
Pétrusse Park has an amazing jogging track which is also ideal for sightseeing. The path winds through the old town, overlooking the city’s cliffs, bridges and the river carving its way through the valley. It’s a really relaxing spot to run or walk – and it doesn't cost a thing!Accommodations nearby
Benji is a luxury travel hacker with a passion for all things American.
If you have some free time after exploring Luxembourg City, I’d recommend a visit to Vianden Castle. This 11th-century hilltop fortress is one of the best preserved castles around and has gorgeous countryside views. At only 50 km from the capital, it also makes an easy day trip.Accommodations nearby
Anna speaks 5 languages fluently, so she fits right into multilingual Luxembourg.
I loved exploring the town of Grund, which sits on the Alzette river. An uphill walk of about 15 minutes leads you to several viewpoints perched on the side of the cliff, offering some of the best views of Luxembourg City – the old town looks incredible from up there!Accommodations nearby
A chocolate a day keeps the doctor away for Maïté, who samples sweets from each place she visits.

The easiest way to reach Luxembourg City from the airport is by bus. The bus station is right outside the terminal, and lines 16 and 29 both reach the centre within 20–25 minutes. Tickets cost EUR 4 from machines at the bus stop. Buses run every 10 minutes from 05:30–23:00 Monday–Friday, every 20 minutes from 05:25–23:05 on Saturdays, and every 30 minutes from 05:59–22:59 on Sundays. Alternatively, taxis charge around EUR 25 for the 10–15 minute drive to the city.
Luxembourg’s railway network has excellent connections with other European countries. The city’s main rail hub is Luxembourg Central Station, which also offers shops, restaurants and ATMs. International ticket prices vary, but journeys within Luxembourg are covered by short-term tickets (EUR 2), valid for 2 hours after validation, and day tickets (EUR 4), valid for unlimited travel for 1 day. Tickets are sold in train stations, some grocery shops and post offices.
Luxembourg City’s bus system is very efficient, with 31 lines running from around 06:00 to 00:00. A 2-hour ticket costs EUR 2, while a 10-ticket card costs EUR 16 – both sold at ticket machines at bus stops. For timetable information, you can text the number or name of any bus stop to 661 104 105. The city also runs Night Rider buses from 18:00–05:00 on Friday and Saturday night. Demand is high for this door-to-door service, so it’s advisable to book in advance.
Cycling is a popular way to get around Luxembourg City. Distances are generally short – if somewhat hilly – and many roads have designated bike lanes. The city’s public bicycle rental service is called vel’oh! – bikes can be picked up and dropped off 24/7 at the 72 vel’oh! stations. You can buy a weekly pass for EUR 1 from any vel’oh! station. The first 30 minutes of any ride are free, and each subsequent hour costs EUR 1, up to a maximum of EUR 5 per 24 hours.
Driving generally isn’t the best way to get around Luxembourg City. It’s much easier to leave your car at the free park-and-ride facilities on the outskirts of the city and use public transport instead. If you do drive, the main rush hours are 08:00–09:00 and 16:00–18:00. Parking is very scarce – look out for “P” signs indicating a car park – and almost always paid, whether fixed fee or metered. Be aware that vehicles parked illegally will be clamped.
