Welcome to Luxembourg

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!

Best places to see in Luxembourg

American Military Cemetery
Monuments
In the winter of 1944-45, nineteen thousand American soldiers lost their lives in the Battle of the Bulge. A quarter of those are buried in this cemetery, but all are honoured for their bravery in what was a key Allied victory. Row upon row of simple white gravestones mark the site like a snow-covered field – a solemn reminder of how much is owed by so many to so few.

Fort Thüngen
Monuments
Art, history, nature. The rebuilt Fort Thüngen lays it on thick. First off, peruse the Musée Dräi Eechelen to swot up on the fort’s origins and the squabbles that lead to its demolition in 1867. In Mudam art museum, pour over everything from Alvar Aalto’s furniture to Marina Abramović’s video installations. Then wrap up the day outdoors with a picnic in Dräi Eechelen Park.

Place D'Armes
Popular areas
A farewell to arms. In 1944, American troops poured onto this little square and signalled the liberation of Luxembourg. Since then, it’s been a place of peace and calm. Browse the bric-à-brac stalls of the flea market at your leisure. Then recline on a cute café terrace and soak up the soothing sounds of string quartets that float from the old-time bandstand.

Deportation Memorial and Museum
Museums
For almost five years, Luxembourg lived under Nazi occupation. This museum is dedicated to all who suffered in WWII. Trace the fate of the thousands of Luxembourgers: from political dissidents and forced military conscripts, to Jewish citizens who were deported to concentration camps. It’s chilling to think that for many, this old train station was their last sight of home.

Viaduc Passerelle
Landmarks
Don’t pass up the chance to walk across the Passerelle. Built in 1861, this viaduct linked the new train station with the Old Town. Traverse the bridge to snap tree-top vistas of the Pétrusse Valley, or ramble beneath it on Rue Saint-Quirin and gaze up at the twenty-four arches that span the divide. Then meander alongside the River Alzette and stop for a bite in cosy Bosso Bar.

Chemin de la Corniche
Popular areas
Luxembourg’s city fortifications were once the envy of Europe. This pretty promenade straddles the rocky Bock promontory on which those 17th-century defences were built. Roam the romantic walkway to look upon the rampart ruins that nestle above the River Alzette. Then clamber down the old steps to cutesy Rue Münster, and chow on upscale Italian fare in Michelin-starred Mosconi.
