Places of worship in Luxembourg

Numerous religious sites and places of worship highlight the fabulous landscapes of Luxembourg. Catholic religion is predominant, and its believers come together in beautiful churches, abbeys and basilicas. Yet there are also a lot of smaller parish churches that witness a remarkable architecture with solemn interiors. The life of Luxembourg's Catholics is marked by religious celebrations the whole year through. The Dancing Procession of Echternach or the Octave pilgrimage in Luxemburg city are just a few examples amongst the many famous religious events.

Archaeology in Luxembourg

Archaeology in Luxembourg retraces a flourishing past, from prehistory through the Roman times and the Middle Ages up to today's buzzing civilization. Archaeological excavations have been held at many a site. Their findings are displayed in the numerous museums of history and art. Archaeology also means discovering the everyday life, work and rituals of our ancestors. Hence a number of archaeological sites display through workshops how people lived in the Roman times or manufactured iron in the medieval times. The remains and the museum of Roman Villa  at Echternach or the Roman site of Dalheim rank among the best preserved Roman ruins of Luxembourg.

Industry in Luxembourg

Strongly marked by the Industrial Revolution, Luxembourg has an abundance of industrial sites, mainly situated around the mining area in the south of the country. Iron mines, blast furnaces and old factories are the witnesses of a buzzing period during which everyday life has often been hard. With its Roman lime kilns, old railways and copper mines, Luxembourg has such a rich industrial history that specific walking-tours around industrial sites have been designed. Discover Luxembourg’s industrial heritage through an exciting quest hunt in the mines or take a ride on a locomotive. A journey for the whole family.
