Luxembourg from Let’s Go Europe 2008

They didn’t have a ton on Luxembourg but Rick Steves’ Europe through the Backdoor had nothing so I’m happy to just to get a few ideas. They mention a few things in Luxembourg City, notably:

Wenzel Walk = a path in the the old city that includes the Chemin de la Corniche, known as “Europe’s most beautiful balcony.”

Bock Casemates = a fortress and 17 km of tunnels.

I suspect we’ll spend plenty of time just walking around shopping as Mancunian advised. Mostly they talk about stuff outside of Luxembourg City. Vianden sounds like a good day trip because of Chateau de Vlanded, “one of the most impressive castles in Europe.” They also have a chairlift that’s supposed to offer good views. They make it sound like buses only go to Ettelbruck and Clervaux (and Clervaux doesn’t seem to be mentioned anywhere else in the book – not even the index).

The other towns mentioned seem to involve outdoorsy stuff and it might be too cold for that in January.

    I ended up in Luxembourg by accident one time. I was driving on the autobahn and realized too late that we were approaching the border. Unfortunately, I was on military orders that only authorized me to be in Germany, so we had to turn around and come back without any sightseeing.

    It seemed really pretty though. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. Safe travels!
