Luxembourg

Luxembourg is the capital of Grand Duchy from which it takes its name and is proud of its history and its rich architectural heritage. From Medieval to Gothic, palaces and cathedrals symbolise a city which has a grand history. Hire a bike and take a tour, either around the city or the woods that surround it. Luxembourg is a welcoming place.

The city of Luxembourg, capital of Grand Duchy of the same name, is divided into two parts: the “Old City”, on the River Alzette, and the "New City", which extends along the Kirchberg plateau. The two metropolitan areas are linked by more than a hundred flyovers and bridges. This earned the city the name "City of Bridges". Despite being the capital of one of the smallest countries in Europe, it has many stories to tell. Cathedrals, palaces, forests, hills and rivers make Luxembourg a region of great attractions. The people of Luxembourg are also some of the richest people in the European Union. Be sure to visit the Cathedral of Our Lady (a Gothic structure built between 1613 and 1621) or the Grand Ducal Palace (of medieval splendour which is located next to the parliament building). A journey on the Petrusse Express is unforgettable, a train that follows a route between castles and ancient monuments. The nature invites cyclists to take advantage of the numerous cycle paths. The gastronomy of this small country is noted for products such as black pudding, sausages, Ardennes ham, trout, crab and a variety of cheeses. Enjoy them with the famous Moselle or Château de Beaufort national wines.
