Lux on Sunday morning
2 days in Luxembourg
I'm going to spend 2 days in Luxembourg at the end of December.
I have some questions:
- What is the wheather like in this period? Do it usually snow?
- I will problably stay in a hotel near the train station, is it a good area?
- I will have to wait for the bus to get to the airport at 5 o'clock in the morning with my little brother (he's 14) next to the railway station, will it be dangerous in your opinion?
- which places do you think I can't miss in this 2-days visit?
is it an expensive city? (I'm interested in particular in bar/restaurant)
Thanks to everyone that will help me!
RE: 2 days in Luxembourg
the weather is quite rough at that time:cold and sometimes snow. The area around the train station is not the best one but it's better to stay there if you have a bus to take early in the morning. As in all the cities the railway station areas are often the places where homeless people meet and pass the night but as Lux. is a small country there should be no problem! Concerning the areas to visit: the old city (downtown), the Petrusse valley, the Marienland (called the little switzerland), and many more.
Luxembourg is quite expensive but the prices of the drinks and the food 'in middle class restaurants/bars are acceptable.
Hope your trip will be fine......
Travel Tips for Luxembourg
Take a walk or trainride...
Take a walk or trainride through the Canyon of the Petruse. How this tiny little stream cut out the enormous precipus that devides the city into two halfs can be considered a little miracle of nature (or just nature endless patience). Completely surprised by meeting a friend on the Place de l'Armee, while listening to funny fanfare-music.
The thick fortress walls still contain over 20 kms of walkable casemats which you can visit. You can see the entry when walking on the Montée de Clausen. If you're staying in the city hostel, you'll pass all this every day!
Euro coins of Luxembourg
Luxembourg was among the 11 countries which introduced the Euro as legal tender on the 1st of January 2002.
As in all other countries, also the coins of Luxembourg have a special national side. It shows a portrait of the Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg, but in 3 different designs.
Also the name of the country in the local Luxembourgish language is shown: "Lëtzebuerg".
As Luxembourg is one of the smallest countries of the Eurozone, you will notice that the majority of coins you will get as change in Luxembourg is still from other countries, such as Germany and France.
If you have any friends who collect Euro coins you should make sure that you keep all Luxembourg coins for them.
Luxembourg Tourist Office
Find the Tourist Office quite easily in the Cercle Municipal building (on the right on the photo where the yellow awning is), which is on the Place d'Armes. Also visit the website which has excellent information. They also send brochures free from their e-shop.
Again, Luxembourg is hardly on...
Again, Luxembourg is hardly on anyone's 'beaten path,' and if it is on your beaten path, you're going to want to see everything, so this category is kinda silly. Regardless, check out this church. This is St. Michael's Church, built in 987 AD. How's that for historical preservation? Of course, the current building isn't that old, what with the constant destruction of the city every time the Germans, French, Burgundians, English, or anyone else started getting feisty. It's still a nice building.
