Starting from our hotel in Luxembourg City‘s Kirchberg quarter, we passed modern buildings, including European Union institutions, and an open square I imagine filled with hurried workers in business suits during the work day. As we got closer and closer to the city center, the buildings got older and older. We even walked through the historic fortress, beautiful parks, and green spaces. With Luxembourg City’s lush trees and dreamy architecture, I hadn’t even made it to the center and knew this was going to be one of my favorite European urban destinations.
Luxembourg City is a small European capital with it’s center situated on a cliff above a river valley and gorge. This unique feature not only naturally splits the city into different neighborhoods but also offers stunning sights from an abundance of angles. The magnificent overlooks and views alone are one of the top reasons to visit Luxembourg City, so see for yourself and check out photos from my two days wandering the streets of this gem of a city.
