I have to confess that I have always considered Luxembourg an interesting country. The stories about its wealth are well known all over the world. This is the reason why the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has been on my list for quite a while.
I have recently had the chance to visit the City of Luxembourg which is also the capital of the country. This is actually the most famous city in the country because the most important tourist attractions in Luxembourg can be found there.The City of Luxembourg is a modern and cosmopolitan city, which impresses its tourists with a strong blend of styles.
Even if in general it has a modern architecture with interesting and innovative buildings, you can still admire some charming old buildings, ancient fortifications, cobblestone streets, rustic bridges and picturesque landscapes there. The beautiful parks, gardens, tunnels and canals perfectly complete the scenery.This harmonious blend between old and new is really impressive, even if, as I have already said, the modern architecture is dominant.
I must say that the City of Luxembourg with its modern air didn’t impress me that much, because I prefer those places where the rustic, old and picturesque architecture is dominant. However, it is true that this city managed somehow to satisfy my tastes and I definitely don’t regret my visit there.
You should know that the most beautiful and interesting tourist attractions in the city are situated in the central area and it won’t take you too much time to visit them.
In my opinion there are some representative places you should definitely visit in case you ever get to the City of Luxembourg. I am talking about the following lovely places: Arms Square (Place D’Armes), Guillaume II Square (Place Guillaume II), the City Hall, the Grand Ducal Palace, Constitution Square( Place de la Constitution), Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Monument of Remembrance (Gelle Fra), the Petrusse Valley, the River Alzette with its canals, the Bock Casemates and the Petrusse Casemates.
I won’t say anything else about these places, but in return I will let you admire a collection of beautiful pictures, which will probably convince you to take a trip to Luxembourg.
