Luxembourg travel guide
Right on the border to Germany lies cute Echternach. It's a medieval town with, not one but, two magnificent churches and an elegant town square. Its proximity to Müllerthal forest - you can walk straight into the woods from the town - makes it a perfect base for exploring some of Luxembourg's best outdoor.
Most visitors have no idea what to expect from Luxembourg City, for it's reputation isn't up there with other European capitals. But the old quarter with cobbled streets, cathedral, royal palace, and spectacular fortifications is enlisted as UNESCO World Heritage. Along the course of the 17th-century city ramparts runs the Chemin de la Corniche, a pedestrian promenade with magnificent views over the lower lying quarter of Grund, the Bock Casemates (a rock outcrop with a cave and tunnel system), and other ancient city walls. Further across the Alzette valley, perched on a plateau, rise the business district of Kirchberg, which has become a showcase of modern architecture with the Philharmonie, Museum of Modern Art, and European Investment Bank as the masterpieces.
