Luxembourg City – A European urban gem
Starting from our hotel in Luxembourg City’s Kirchberg quarter, we passed modern buildings, including European Union institutions. Walking through an open square, I imagined it 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, which was once one of the strongest fortifications in all of Europe.
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. Beautiful parks and gardens and manicured green spaces cropped up around every corner. And as one of the smallest European capitals, the walkability of the city makes it incredibly easy to take in so much of its beauty.

The city’s center is 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 vantage points. The magnificent overlooks and views alone are one of the top reasons to visit Luxembourg City, so see for yourself and check out these photos from my two days wandering the streets of this gem of a city.
