A gorgeous city and one of Europe's most dramatically situated, Luxembourg City makes a nice stop in between the cities of Belgium and the German wine country. Plus, you get the novelty of visiting one of Europe's smallest state. But understand that the country, The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, is more than just Luxembourg City. Although its capital city makes for a great introduction. Luxembourg has a long history and the city has been one of the most-fortified on the continent. One of the most enjoyable things to do in Luxembourg is simply walking along the Corniche to view both the upper and lower towns. Pick up the excellent-value Luxembourg card which allows entry to all museums and onto all public transportation throughout the whole of the Grand Duchy. If you have only a few hours, the Tourist information Center distributes fee maps and a recommended two-hour self-guided city walk.

Picturesque and serene. Luxembourg lies in a very beautiful river valley which can make for some spectacular pictures. However, it is pretty small, and doesn't have a whole lot to do. It is really ideal for a day visit.

A pretty odd spot. I had a both warm and fun times, and some really disconcerting negative experiences here in just a few days. There is a lot of history and european grandeur built into the structure of Luxembourg - litterally. There are some seriously old walls and structures here. It is beautiful. The efforts to regain the Luxembourgish language is interesting as well. The food is fantastic, a great confluence of the neighboring countries. There are some fun bars here as well. This would be a great place to be rich.

Take your time walking through the lower city and exploring the back alleys.
