Luxembourg a land of numerous majestic castles with breath taking landscapes, just like in fairy tale.
When we were little our father always talked about his adventure in Luxembourg with our uncles and grandparents. How he loved to explore this little country and especially enjoying the beautiful surroundings. He said someday I will take you guys to Luxembourg so you can see it for yourself . For us its just a 3 hour drive from where we live. So we and our brother figure why not surprise him for his birthday and take him to Luxembourg for a road weekend-trip! So we did! We first did some sight seeing in Belgium, like visiting the cave of Remouchamps and waterfall of Coo. On the way we made some stops to picnic and enjoy the beautiful view. From there we went to our bungalow (this was our first time staying in a camping/bungalow) Our bungalow was located near the forest, so it was peaceful. The next few days we did some sightseeing, walked around and went to places where our father went in his younger years, he loved it! And of course we did too!
Here’s a list where we went.
Vianden an old city but looked like something you’d see in a fairytale, it felt like we were on the set of The Princess Diaries 2. All of the buildings and houses looked like miniatures. Here you can also find the famous Vianden Castle, which was built between the 11th and 14th Century. The castle is located on a beautiful hill, if you want you can make a tour.
* Luxembourg city
A really nice city to explore. Its an old small city but home for 150 different nationalities. On Saturdays you have this local market where you can buy traditional food, fruit/vegetables etc. We bought some of their roasted chicken( so yummie!) and ate it on a park bench (on a hill) looking down at the old city. We had this beautiful view of the valley the petrusse (skyline).
– Adolfs bridge
– Grand Ducal Palace
A route of 11,7 kilometer long. During the walk you will enjoy a lot of Luxembourg’s beautiful nature. Small streams of water everywhere, big rocks, trees etc. Definitely a great place to make long walks.
