The River Saure is a beautiful natural feature of Diekirch, running alongside the town. There is a paved bicycle and walking path that follows the river and leads one across a bridge to the other side. On the day we were there, we took a walk along the river and over the bridge. We saw very few other people out and about that day. The river was...more
Probably dating from 3rd century AD, found in "rue de l'Esplanade" in 1926 and then 1950 during excavations. The first mosaic (3m x 3,50m) is ornamented with geometric designs that frame a partly damaged lion. The second mosaic (3,50m x 4,75m) represents stylised flowers entwined around geometric designs. In the middle, there is the face of a...more

No great discos, but some good cafés(open till 1.00 am and sometimes in summer till 3.00am)
very interesting street which is closed for all traffic! Here you find the best cafés and places to have a nice evening!
We drove to Diekirch and easily found free parking on the road. The town also has a train station, making a visit by train very easy as well. The smallness of the town means that you can walk to just about anywhere from your parking spot or the train station without any problems.As with many of the towns in Luxembourg, the roads are windy and you...more
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.more
To get to Diekirch by train from Luxembourg city, you need to take 2 trains. First take the train from Luxembourg to Ettelbruck, then take a train from Ettelbruck to Diekirch. There is a special line that shuttles between Ettelbruck and Diekirch. The train from Ettelbruck to Diekirch waits for the train from Luxembourg to arrive before it leaves....more
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.
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 :(

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.
Luggage and bags:
Bring a lot of good humor along!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Even in Summer you risk to have some cold nights and some rain. So don't forget the right clothes for these days!
Photo Equipment: You have no further problems for photographs for there are at least 3 special shops inside the citycenter
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: In Diekirch you have 3 camping grounds and around Diekirch there are so plenty that it is difficult to enumerate them all here.
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 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!more
