For centuries, the capital city of Luxembourg was home to one of the strongest fortresses in Europe. Beyond its image of bureaucracy and business, the financial centre of the European Union also has a long and fascinating history.
Although public transport is free, we recommend you just wander around as much as you can. The distances in the capital of one of the smallest countries in Europe are short and the city is beautiful. The Grand Ducal Palace is a symbol of the world’s only Grand Duchy, and the official residence of the head of state. If you plan to visit the capital of Luxembourg, we also recommend you see the River Alzette from the Chemin de la Corniche viewpoint, cross the Adolphe Bridge, visit Notre-Dame Cathedral, or wander around Grund, the most charming district in the city. The atmosphere in the Place d’Armes or the Place Guillaume II is perfect for sitting down, having a rest and enjoying a drink. The Casemates du Bock comprise 23 kilometres of underground tunnels and galleries where soldiers and their horses used to take refuge.
