Where to Go in Luxembourg
Ville Haute is the historic heart of the city. As the name suggests, it is the older part of the city. The architecture, combined with the nature of the city makes for a wonderful sight. UNESCO World Heritage protects this area. The zigzag streets are very walkable and will bring you close to the heritage buildings.
The Grand Squares and palaces are all within a few minutes walking from each other. You should make sure to visit the 17th-century Cathedrale de Notre Dame. This building was built over 400 years ago by the Jesuit religious order. You should not forget to visit two of the grand public squares. Place Guillaume II is a town square in the middle of Ville Haute. This square was originally the location of a monastery. However, during the French Revolutionary War, Napoleon had ordered to deconstruct the monastery and use the material to build a new town hall.
Place d’Armes is the place where everyone meets. Young, old, local, and tourist. The area is an integral part of the pedestrian zone and surrounded by many street cafes and restaurants. The French troops of Louis XIV paved the ‘Parlour of the City’ around the years of 1671. Lime trees were planted, and the square was used for parades by the French. Cercle Cité is located at Place d’Armes and is a must-see. On the front of the building, you can see a unique frieze depicting the scene where Countess Ermesinde frees Luxembourg’s citizens in the year 1244. She did this by handing them the charter of freedom The oldest part of the city can be reached via an elevator or stairs. This will bring you to Grund.
The ‘village within the city’ has a picturesque atmosphere that begs to be experienced. The area is perfect for you to wander around. The ancient bridges, many trees, and stone buildings will leave you in awe. You will want to visit the restaurants and pubs in this area to get the full experience of ancient Luxembourg. You should know that one of the neighbourhoods, Abbey of Neumünster, sheltered monks in the 16th century. Visit and be amazed by the history.

The summer months are a great time to visit Luxembourg City. The weather is pleasant and warm, although you will also come across more tourists. You will likely pay between €90 and €150 per night for a hotel night. Hotels are likely to be busy around the National Day celebration on the 22nd and 23rd of June. It's worth the risk to enjoy outdoor celebrations across the city. If you get the chance, make sure to visit the parade in the district of Kirchberg.

Where to Stay in Luxembourg
Europe’s greatest fortified coyote is divided into 24 ‘quartiers’. Each quarter will provide you with a slightly different experience.
Ville Haute, or Old Town, is the most historical part of the city and will certainly spark your interest all around. Your first-time stay will likely be in Ville Haute to soak up the history and be amazed by the beautiful architecture.
Grund is a wealthier neighbourhood. The area has beautiful views, which go hand-in-hand with high housing prices. It is the liveliest and most multicultural area. This is also a great area for nighttime explorers seeking bars and pubs. If this is your second time in the city, then Grund might be the area for you.
This neighbourhood is for you if you enjoy being in the middle of attractive boulevards. This area is located around the city’s central train station. It is a hub for business, shops, and restaurants. This is a rather busy and booming area with a constant stream of people, making it all the more interesting.
Kirchberg is in the northern part of Luxembourg city. This is the European quarter and is a modern yet residential business district. Several European institutions and other businesses are located here. This is also the core area for expats. Nearby is the D’Coque arena, the country’s most prominent sports venue, the Grand Duke Jean Museum of Modern Art and the national concert hall Philharmonie Luxembourg.
Bonnevoie is located in the south of the city and is Luxembourg City’s largest district. It’s primarily a residential area that is most popular among families. But don’t write it off yet; the area has loads of green spaces and a friendly atmosphere. This is a good area for returning travellers who might be looking to stay in a B&B.
Languages in Luxembourg
This Luxembourg Travel Guide doesn’t overlook anything. You should know that Luxembourg has three official languages: Luxembourgish, German, and French. Interestingly, each language serves an unofficial purpose. Luxembourgish is the language spoken among locals. French is used for business, and German is used in media. You have nothing to worry about if you arrive with your English skills only. Most people in Luxembourg speak a decent English level, and people are more than happy to help you where they can.
The Cuisine of Luxembourg
As you could expect, Luxembourg's cuisine has been shaped by its neighbours. France, Belgium, and Germany have all had their fair share of influence. Traditionally speaking, the portions of food are relatively large, and there is a heavy emphasis on meat and fish. You will also find that potatoes and wine are important building blocks for the locals. You will have nothing to worry about if you prefer lighter dishes. The restaurant scene around Luxembourg has been growing and is ready to cater to international bellies.Close the city guide
