Family Fun???

by Sibbella

hello!! I just finished organizing the trip to Brugge for the family, making sure the kids will be entertained as much as possible. Now I need to do a day plan for Luxembourg. Does anyone know of family oriented things that will keep a 16 year old.. 9 year old and 11 year old's attention? I've gone on the sites, and looked through here but nothing so far.

I was hoping someone might have a "secret weapon" of some sort :)

Thanks so much!!

The Bock Casements should be interesting to all ages for an hour or two. It is a fort that consists of 23 kms of tunnels inside the cliffs. The site is over 1000 years old and the tunnels were used for shelter during WW2. Details, prices, and photos are in Things to do tips on my Luxembourg page.

Take care and again thanks!

I thought the Petrusse Express might appeal to people of all ages, it's a pleasant 50 minute ride on a tram, designed to look like a train, that starts from the Place de la Constitution down through the Grund via the Petrusse and Alzette Valleys. It was 8E for adults, didn't notice what it was for kids. They give you headphones for commentary or I suppose you could just look at the view.

We didn't have time for the casements but they looked very interesting!

Travel Tips for Luxembourg

General Life In Luxembourg

by lawjigga

Luxembourg is really a beautiful country! I haven't really gotten time to travel much outside the US, but I am really glad I was able to come here.

Without exceeding description quota: I would say that Luxembourg is a paradise for those who LOVE nature! Yes, the trees, the forest, the hilly mountains, this place has got it all! They have plenty of trails to choose to help you navigate around if you don't have a CAR! At this pont I am still in Luxembourg. I will very much miss the nature like activities! This place really is a paradice if you want to get away and just be active and exploring!

Schengen Visas

by MikeAtSea

I still remember the old days when one needed a visa for every single European country. That is of course if you have a nationality that is not really favoured in Europe for free entry and travel.
Today it is a lot easier, okay not getting the visa since some Consulates and Embassies require personal interviews, however once you have the Schengen Visa one can freely enter and travel between the following countries: Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, Finnland, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, France, Spain, Portugal, Austria, Greece and Italy.
If you for instance travel to Germany and then wish to visit Switzerland make sure you have a multiple entry visa, since some countries are not part of the Schengen agreement yet. This includes Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland and all EU countries of the former Eastern block. Some of the newer European Union countries from the “East” may enter this agreement in the near future.

Luxembourgish/Lëtzebuergesch

by leplaya

Though pretty much everyone in Luxembourg speaks French, German and English, Lëtzebuergesch is part of Luxembourg's national identity. Though Lëtzebuergesch is a germanic language, don't expect to understand it if you speak German. To me (who speaks a little French and no German) it sounds like someone is trying to speak German in a French accent, or is speaking French with words that I don't know. Though it certainly is not necessary to know Lëtzebuergesch when visiting Luxembourg, it helps to know a couple of words. I was pretty confused when people were saying "moien" (which sounds like "moyenne" in French - meaning "average"). I kept on wondering why everyone was greeting me with "average."

by catnapper

cultural features: a lot of museums and site seeing (old castles like Beaufort in the heart of the Mullertal(see the following picture)), good food from every country available. You can greet people in frensh, german (not so liked) and english or in luxemburgish: Gooda Moyn(phonetical) (Good Morning!)
Mistakes: Do not behave like a fool and you'll be liked, but the Luxemburgers are a bit reserved. When the ice is broken they'll be good companions(even in drinking!) WE HAVE SOME GOOD BEERS -> BATTIN, SIMON PILS, DIEKIRCH, BOFFERDING, MOUSEL (which I personaly do not like at all)

Banque Centrale du Luxembourg

by morgenhund

The BCL is Luxembourg's Central Bank and formerly was of course responsible for guaranteeing the currency supply in Luxembourg. Now it is part of the ESCB (European System of Central Banks). There is not much to see here, but if you are interested in banking it is worth popping by to look at the building when strolling through the city.
