8 Things To See And Do In Luxembourg City


Luxembourg is a country that often gets over-looked by its more well-known neighbours - Belgium, France and Germany. However, even in the cold and grey month of February, the capital city of Luxembourg was still impossibly quaint. With charming buildings everywhere you look, cobbled streets and a balcony that's considered to be 'Europe's most beautiful balcony', it's hard not to love Luxembourg city.

Like the whole country, Luxembourg city is incredibly small and really easy to walk around on foot. Although just because the city is tiny, that doesn't mean there isn't plenty to see and do! Here are 8 must-see places in Luxembourg:

1. Chemin De La Corniche 
This viewpoint over part of the city was once described as 'Europe's most beautiful balcony' and it's easy to see why. It overlooks a bend in the Alzette river and the gorgeous buildings below. What makes it even better is that this vantage point is completely free to visit.

2. Rue Münster 
A really pretty part of Luxembourg is around the bridge Rue Münster. This part of the city is quieter than the main city centre, and is only a 5 minute walk from the Chemin de la Corniche balcony. 

3. Casemates du Bock
A unique attraction in Luxembourg is Bock Casemates, a defence system of underground tunnels and rooms. You can see some of the complex from the Chemin de la Corniche, or visitors can also opt to wander the tunnels. Note though that it's not open all year round, and is closed between November and February each year.

4. Chocolate House by Nathalie Bonn
If you've got a sweet tooth then head to the Chocolate House opposite the Palais Grand-Ducal. The Chocolate House is the best place in Luxembourg for hot chocolates as it has a huge range of 'chocolate spoons' that you stir into milk. The flavours range from cookie coconut or brownie, to really obscure flavours such as pear cinnamon or strawberry pink pepper. The cakes are also amazing!

5. MUDAM Luxembourg 
Also known as Musee d'Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, MUDAM Luxembourg is a contemporary art museum with a really unique collection of pieces. I'm not often one for art museums, but I really enjoyed this one! 

6. Palais Grand-Ducal 
Right in the centre of the city is the Grand Ducal Palace, the official home of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg. What's interesting about this palace is it's surrounded by other ordinary buildings. In fact if it wasn't for the guards around the building, you'd be forgiven for walking straight past it.

7. The city hall and public square
Another grand building in Luxembourg is the city hall. The main square straight outside of the city hall is also really pretty. 

8. Luxembourg City History Museum
The Musee d'Histoire de la Ville de Luxembourg is located in the old town area of Luxembourg, just a 1 minute walk from the Grand Ducal palace.
