Luxembourg is a land-locked European country whose cultural identity borrows a bit from the nations surrounding it. But this charming and diverse land has many distinctive features that make it unique and unforgettable.
A medieval fortress overlooks the capital city of Luxembourg and serves notice that the Grand Duchy has castles to rival those of its next-door neighbors. The city is an international finance center, but the vibe is hardly hustle and bustle. Locals and visitors alike congregate around the Place d'Armes, the tree-lined city center and former military parade ground where open-air cafes serve up savory dishes and Moselle region wine. From here the Wenzel Walk takes visitors on a footpath through history as it winds around the city's cobblestone streets.
Away from the city awaits abundance of natural riches. The Battle of the Bulge was once waged on the Ardennes region's lush rolling hills. Now cyclists and hikers invade the area's sleepy towns, castles, meadows and forests. Other active ways to explore Luxembourg include golfing, horseback riding, skiing and even paragliding. And when you're ready to slow down, an array of spas, museums and monuments await.
Some travelers here take the opportunity to learn a new language. The citizens of Luxembourg are fluent in French, German and Luxembourgish. But if you find speaking in a foreign tongue a bit intimidating, know that many people in Luxembourg also speak English quite well.
Enjoying a meal in Luxembourg is also almost reason enough to make it your next getaway. In fact the official tourism site boasts that the country has more Michelin starred restaurants per capita than any other.
Of course these spacious cottages, apartments and mountain chalets make the sights and savory delights of Luxembourg all the more enjoyable. Each accommodation offers a combination of amenities to make your stay feel like home.
