Luxembourg Old Town Walk, Luxembourg

The UNESCO World Heritage Ville Hauteis (Old Town) is a beautiful and inspiring place in the gorge of the River Alzette. The zigzagging streets host heritage buildings, grand squares and palaces, all within a few minutes' walking distance of each other. There are several noteworthy buildings in the area. Visit the beautiful 17th-century Cathedrale de Notre Dame, which was built by the Jesuit religious order. Admire the late Gothic architecture and its mix of Renaissance elements. Other important locations include two public squares and their clutch of historic buildings, Place Guillaume II and Place d’Armes. For food, there are plenty of delicious options, including a number of Michelin-starred restaurants. To reach the oldest part of the city, take the elevator or stairs from the Old Town. They bring you to Grund, an affluent neighborhood on the banks of the Alzette. This picturesque area is noted for its fine restaurants, bars and pubs which make it a popular nightspot. History lovers will enjoy a visit to the neighborhood’s Abbey of Neumunster, which sheltered monks in the 16th century. Parts of this complex are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and during its long history, the abbey also served as a prison and a barracks. Today, concerts, exhibitions and seminars are hosted here.
