Finding ourselves in Brussels and noticing that Luxembourg is only 3 hours away by train, we decided we would fit two countries into our weekend away (it all helps with the Facebook list of countries challenge). And it was only 23€ per person after all, so off we went. The train was, well a train journey. Nothing much to speak about. However Luxembourg was a surprise for me: a very nice city, old, beautiful architecture and clean. It also turned out to be their National Holiday (note to self: read about a country before you visit).
We wandered up to the city from the station – not a long walk – Luxembourg is not like London or Paris. Most places are a short, easy walk.
Now we only had a few hours in Luxembourg, so getting to see everything was impossible. Also the fact that the Grand Ducal Palace was closed to tourists did not help. We did however go inside the Bock Casemates.
