Recommendations

  • Visit the Cathedral of the Blessed Virgin, for beautiful stained glass
  • Eat at La Piazza for cheap (and good) food close to the city center, and make sure to stop by the Chocolate House for some cake afterwards.
  • Check out the views from the various vistas-not to be missed!
  • Explore the old town, with its narrow alleys and pastel buildings.
  • Learn more about Luxembourg’s history at the city’s museum, which is interactive and tons of fun.

Travel Tip: Polish up on your French-while the country is technically tri-lingual, French is the most used language and is necessary for communication in stores and restaurants.
