  • Special tips

    Luxembourg Off The Beaten Path

    Walferdange is not a very well-known place, it's a little village close to Luxembourg-city (15 min. by train) where there is nothing to see except the inhabitants and a few cows :-) But there is one great thing that you can do there : enjoy the "Pidal Club". This is a big complex where you can go swimming, do some fitness, eat and most of all,...

    Luxembourg Off The Beaten Path

    I haven't been able to find anything out about this church, but I wanted to draw attention to it because its interior really surprised me. I came across whilst wandering and decided to have a look inside. The interior is very modern and I've discovered ( I think) that the building itself, despite appearances, only dates from the 1930s. I has some...

  • Grund

    The Grund, or lower town of Luxembourg City, is a picturesque, cobblestoned quarter that apparently is the place where Luxembourg's nightlife takes place....To me it is only the place, where I could get into the very modern escalator to reach the upper City of Luxembourg. Still I think, that this part of Luxemburg is very much worth having a look...

    Esch-sur-Alzette is the second largest town of Luxembourg. It is 17 km from the capital and is actually an industrial city.

The museum has a superb collection of...
