Vibrant and cosmopolitan
The heart of this vibrant, cosmopolitan, culturally exciting, laid-back green capital beats in the city centre. Built on impressive historical foundations, experience UNESCO World Heritage as well as culture and shopping for all tastes.
Luxembourg may only be a small country, but it is extremely dynamic and multicultural. In a city where you can meet people from 170 nations, it’s no wonder that so many of the languages of the world are heard everywhere. Everything is within walking distance – restaurants, cafés, bars, museums and shops. As the entire Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage site, relaxing strolls and fascinating insights into the history of the country and the city are virtually inseparable.
Take a walk along the Corniche, hailed as “Europe’s most beautiful balcony” by Luxembourg writer Batty Weber. Discover the Casemates, the underground tunnels carved into the solid rock. Take the lift to the Grund or to Pfaffenthal and discover a city on many levels that surprises you around almost every corner with green oases and places to simply sit and take a breather. Visit one of the many museums, for instance the seven that make up the MuseumSmile, and find out all about the history, natural history and the arts and culture of Luxembourg. Art and culture can also be found in numerous small galleries and shops such as those in the Fëschmaart quarter of the Old Town.
Stroll through the streets, keep your eyes peeled and discover surprises and delights around every corner – a fusion of tradition and modernity. Take a free ride to the Kirchberg Plateau on the ultra-modern tram and visit the architectural masterpieces of the Philharmonie and the Mudam (Museum of Modern Art). It’s all so close together and easy to find, yet the capital is packed with exciting contrasts that captivate visitors the moment they set foot in Luxembourg City.
