Diekirch Transportation

  • Diekirch by train from Ettelbruck

    Between the two 'bigger' towns of Luxembourg, Diekirch and Ettelbruck runs a small train, a nice way to get around these little towns. It is best to park in Diekirch, because Ettelbruck has parking space, but you can only park at those places for two hours and Diekirch has a big free parking place near the railway station.

  • Train Station

Diekirch Shopping

  • nighthawk's Profile Photo

    by nighthawk Written Sep 28, 2002

    The shops round the market square are nice for a strawl. Kids love the goats statue in one of the streets and we never succeeded in passing it swiftly.

    What to buy: If you want to go to the larger shops, like Blokker (household goods), Aldi (supermarket) or the MacDonalds, you have to take the direction of Ettelbruck. After you have passed the Diekich beer brewery at the right, you see the shops real soon.

Diekirch Warnings and Dangers

  • catnapper's Profile Photo

    by catnapper Written May 12, 2003

    Be aware when coming to Diekirch. We have some parkinghouses, but most of the parkings are taken by residents. So some parking problems will appear, and we have one "Pechert" (person who controls if your pakingticket is OK), who is a real maniac...so pay your ticket or get a real high price to pay at the police :(

    Some helpful Tel:
    112 First Aid /Firebrigade/SAMU
    113 Police

Diekirch Tourist Traps

    There are no bigger problems in Diekirch. You are very sure even at night. But sometimes in the cafés they trap the tourists by asking higher prices, but if you can have a pricetable so ask for it and you'll get the right price to pay.

Diekirch Off The Beaten Path

    If you're interested you can go and see the military base on the top of the Herrenberg. It's the place where the Luxemburgish Army ( a very small one: with ca 600 soldiers, but very engaged in the NATO) has its mayor base. You cannot visit the base itself but once up to the hill you have a superb view on the whole Sûrevalley!

Diekirch Favorites

  • Rather an 'ordinary' town, is what I...

    Diekirch has some larger shops and we always found it pleasant to go to Diekirch for those. We walked the center several times but did not particularly grew fond of it. Somehow it had no real soul. Fondest memory hahaha that must be the groceries we got there! Especially they were like we are used to in The Netherlands......from the Aldi!
