Welcome to Luxembourg

City description  

Entering Luxembourg makes for much more than a trip into the heart of Europe; it's a fairy tale that unfolds under our very feet. An enchantress in so many ways and made of paradoxes and grace, the capital of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg bewitches its visitors with its majestic historic heritage.

By turns green and urban, medieval and forward thinking, Luxembourg has something very unique about it. Is it the imposing fortifications, a jewel of military architectural that frame the historic center, or is it the peaceful atmosphere that emanates from the two rivers running through it: The Alzette and the Pétrusse? The Luxembourg metropolis owes its elegance to this convergence of architectural majesty, this natural gentleness with its pastoral charms imbued with civility.

You'll discover this, in all its grandiosity, as you cross over the Adolphe bridge and its towering arches. Further away, you can lose yourself in its green spaces like the lavish floral gardens that overlook the Pétrusse.
As hugely pastoral as it feels, this beautiful Luxembourg becomes fervent and dazzling when you enter the Cathedral of Our Lady of Luxembourg. Dating back to the seventeenth century, this jewel of Gothic architecture houses a chancel and, more generally, a setting of incredible splendor. The size of this place is a demonstration among many others of the treasures that Luxembourg has to offer, the most characteristic of which has to be the Grand Ducal Palace.
It was the Renaissance period that was responsible for the construction of this monument of Luxembourg, as emblematic as the Grand Duke Jean Museum of Modern Art, nicknamed "Mudam" whose architectural style is quite different. Because all the quintessence of Luxembourg is found in this symbiosis between modernity and medieval that characterizes the building, and more generally, the city. The meeting of two times, two eras, takes place in a harmony that's as peaceful as the flow of the Pétrusse, sensual and bucolic, all around the Grund district.
