  • Walking around - sightseeing

    Luxembourg Favorites

    The so called Wenzel Circular Walk is a good way to explore Luxembourg's oldest parts in about 2 hours. The walk is named after Wenceslas II Duke of Luxembourg and leads along many historic sights. Among them are the Bock Casemates, the Castle Bridge, the Grund Gate, the Wenzel Wall, the Neum√ľnster Abbey and the Rham Plateau. The Wenzel...

  • The Fortress of Lucilinburhugh

    Luxembourg Favorites

    The fortress gate was built in 1735. Interestingly, when we entered Luxembourg by car and tried to find the youth hostel, we took a wrong turn and ended up in a tunnel. I now realise that the tunnel went all the way under the ancient quarters of the fortress!

    Luxembourg Favorites

    Luxembourg City is no doubt situated in a dramatic physical setting. There are some interesting architectural highlights and some charming streets and hidden spots. You can find good accommodations and decent food and even some good drinking holes. However, I felt that there was something missing here. Maybe it was a clearly identifiable local...

    Grand Duchess Charlotte ruled in years 1919-1964 and most of all she was very popular because her will and deeds during the WW II impressed her people. I think that if ruler is good or bad should be seen in hard time and Grand Duchess Charlotte was successful for sure. In 1990 was inaugurated a great fountain at Clairefontaine Square (right behind...

    Luxembourg Favorites

    Siegfried, the count of the Ardennes, built a castle at the place which is known as the Corniche. This happened in 963 and the town which developped got the name Lucilinburhuc which means The Little Fortress. The region became an independent duchy in 1354. Due to its position it was very sought-after during the centuries but from 1867 on it has...

  • Cathedral

    Luxembourg Favorites

    The church was beautiful, and there were tourists from all over, including many English speaking people. It wasn't as beautiful as many other churches I've been in, but it is a very worthwhile place to visit.

  • Gellen Fra (Our Golden Lady)

    Luxembourg Favorites

    The 'Monument du Souvenir' (memorial) is a pyramide of 12 metres high. On top of the obelisk is the statue of 'Gelle Fra' (the golden woman), goddess of victory. Claus Cito, an artist from Luxembourg, made it. The monument was erected as a rememberance to the soldiers who died for Luxembourg during the wars.

    The statue of Guillaume II or William as you wish :) dominates to the square Knuedel. Who was this Guillaume that now he must sit there all four seasons without moving out? :) Guillaume was King and Grand Duke of Nassau-Orange. He ruled from 1840 to 1849 and, one year before his death, granted the Grand Duchy its first parliamentary constitution,...

  • European Union

    Luxembourg Favorites

    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...

    Never mistaken a Luxemburger (Letzemburger) person as a German one. Under consttruction Most of times, they speak both French, German and... luxemburgish (which is not German, right ?) The clean aspect of the streets; the Lux language, their accent while speaking French... all of that reminds me Germany.

  • Museums

    Luxembourg Favorites

    The museum is in itself a sight to see. It's housed in four restored noble houses, and there are five floors you can explore here. The tour starts out at level 0, at which you are a few floors underground. The internal architecture is fascinating, and you will definitely be impressed. There are several multimedia displays throughout, and each one...

    At the Place d'Armes you always have a chance to smile at something. One day there are funny people walking on those long holes (can't say it in English) and on the other day there are funny bands playing like they make a competition who is better while one band seems to be Leningrad Cowboys and the other one serious Jazz band or Charlie Chaplin...
