The cityscape of Luxembourg is among the most beautiful in Europe. Mighty cliff walls alternate with medieval church towers and fortress complexes. The capital of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, which was the European Capital of Culture in 2007, is home to just about 95,000 people.

Important churches
The late Gothic cathedral of Notre Dame from the 17th century is the most significant sacred structure in the city. Other churches worth a visit include St. Mathieu, St. John's and the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church.

Fortress complex
In 1994, the old town of Luxembourg and the remains of the fortress complex were listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The fortress complex includes not only numerous towers, bulwarks and citadels, but also the casemate, an enormous underground fortification.

Art and museums
Despite its low number of residents, the city of Luxembourg offers museums of international quality. The most important is the Museum of Modern Art on the Kirchberg plateau. Other interesting museums include the National Museum of Natural History, the City History Museum and the Museum of History and Art.

Popular meeting places
At the Place d’Armes, the main city square, you can enjoy the dignified and yet cozy atmosphere of this place in one of the many street cafés and restaurants. Another popular meeting place is the Place Guillaume where there is a market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Worthwhile day trips
In Luxembourg there are quite a few day trip destinations worth visiting. In addition to the prehistoric caves in Mersch, in particular the 7th century Benedictine Monastery in Echternach and the Roman ruins at the Titelberg site and in Steinsel are recommended. Those who love picturesque villages will be ecstatic about Clerf. And fans of medieval fortresses should visit those in Vianden, Bourscheid, Beaufort and Larochette.
