The first time I visited Luxembourg I was surprised, since I was expecting a city, in fact a whole country, full of mansions and expensive cars. However, Luxembourg is not that at all. It is a small international country full of history, which you can feel in each single street. Do you want to know more? just keep reading!
A bit of history…
Luxembourg is the 7th smallest country in Europe. It is bordered by Belgium, France and Germany and it has three official languages, although during our time there we only listened french. We all know it as a “tax heaven” country. But Luxembourg has more to show us.
This historical area is the perfect place to get lost. Walking across its streets the visitor can enjoy a nice view and discover cute restaurants, where it is possible to enjoy a nice meal in front of the river.
Furthermore, the Neumünster Abbey and the National Museum are located in this charming area.
In the city centre, surrounded by stores and restaurants the visitor can find the Place d´Armes, Nôtre Dame Cathedral and the Grand Ducal Palace. Do not leave without trying the cakes of the patisserie located in front of the palace, amazing!!
It is the place for the night life, as well as for Microsoft, Amazon and some other well known companies. It is easy to access to this part of the city through Grund or walking across the old bridges which set up the city.
What to eat?
And finally… I want to show you a pair of cute restaurants that we discovered and which I would recommend you.
