Culture and sights in Luxembourg
A country of castles, this is what you could call Luxembourg. This is a favourite aim for visits with children. A wide range of museums and attractions make your visiting programme complete.
A day in Luxembourg-City should not fail in your holiday programme. You can use public transport to get there, in order to avoid looking for a parking place. The Luxembourg City Tourist Office offers a wide range of thematic walks which will bring you to all the interesting places.
From Eastern till October you can use the “LuxembourgCard”, which is an all-inclusive card giving free admittance to most tourist sites and includes free public transportation. More information at: www.visitluxembourg.com
One of the most visited places is the palace-castle of Vianden, a jewel from the roman and gothic period of Europe, open whole the year around. Because of its rich architecture, you’ll rather call it a palace than a defensive castle.The astonishing decagonal chapel with two levels is placed on the southern part of the rock. The small palace with the large ballroom will seduce you with its 12th century architecture. The living rooms with their splendid furniture lies on the south-eastern side.
The Luxembourg national tourist offices have a brochure called “Culture”, where you’ll find detailed information and addresses: www.visitluxembourg.com
