Weekend breaks to Luxembourg: charming slice of northern Europe.
Explore the iconic sights of Luxembourg
The great thing about a weekend to Luxembourg is that since it's so small, you can see all the sights in just one weekend. The first thing on your list should be to explore the beautiful castles and palaces the city offers. The first to visit is The Grand Ducal Palace. As the city residence of the Grand Ducal family, it's situated right in the core of the Old Town. This magnificent palace evokes all the opulence of the Grand Duchy's medieval splendour and it's a perfect spot to take a guided tour. Next up is the Notre-Dame Cathedral. It's the only cathedral in Luxembourg and it's a beautiful piece of architectural design, with a combination of Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance elements. Lastly, your weekend break should include a visit to Vianden Castle. This is one of the most beautiful and largest residences of the Gothic and Romanesque periods in Europe.
Visit "Little Switzerland"
This is the unique nickname of the Mullerthal Region of Luxembourg. This region is a unique biotope characterised by sandstone rock formations which are as beguiling as they are surprising. It's the unique composition of the soil erosion and rock that have contributed to the formation of this landscape so typical for the region. If you enjoy hiking, then you can take on the 'Mullerthal Trail' which takes you on 112 km of trails through a breath-taking rocky landscape. If serious hiking isn't your style, then don't worry because the region offers a network of pleasant local hikes whilst witnessing stunning panoramas.
Go Museum hopping
For such a small country, Luxembourg is packed with wonderful museums to explore on your weekend break. Check out the National Museum of History and Art to discover a large collection of decorative and fine art, coins and archaeology. Next, make your way to Luxembourg City History Museum which features a glass elevator that takes visitors on a six-story, vertical tour of the city's history. Your final stop on your museum tour should be the National Museum of Military History. This is an exciting military-history museum which features weapons, vehicles, photographs and more.
