Luxembourg City

Perched atop a rocky hill, Luxembourg City overlooks the sparkling Pétrusse and Alzette and deep, craggy valleys. Originally a fortress, the city is now simultaneously a thriving metropolis and a scenic, historic oasis - the perfect combination for a peaceful, historic break. Luxembourg’s entire Old Town is UNESCO-listed, its charming whitewashed buildings and cobbled streets acting as a gateway to landmarks diverse as its 17th-century Cathedrale Note-Dame’s black spires and the modern, glass-roofed Grand Duke Jean Museum of Modern Art. Visit to uncover a little-explored slice of picture perfect Northern Europe that might otherwise slip through the cracks.
