Luxembourg is the capital of the country with the same name and even though the city only has around 90,000 inhabitants, it is one of the most vibrant and charismatic cities in Western Europe. The buildings themselves offer a dynamic range of archaic fortresses and modern and contemporary architecture. Luxembourg offers a striking mix of an old and a new town in one. There are many green parks and spaces that are perfect for a gentle stroll through the summer months, or countless events and indoor activities for the colder days of the year. The city was also ranked third in the EU in 2006 for business efficiency, and is the location of Headquarters for large companies and businesses. Luxembourg is a thriving city that invites tourists, travelers, artists, party goers and history lovers alike! There really is something for everyone, so a bus trip to Luxembourg should not be missed.
Things to do in Luxembourg
When your bus arrives in Luxembourg your trip would not be complete without visiting the Luxembourg fortress. In 1994, the fortifications were first certified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The fortress is a piece of military architecture, and over the years has had influences from all different European angles – some of which have been preserved and still remain for our bus passengers to see today. Not only this, but there are many city tours that are available for you to take part in that will give you deeper insights into the historical fortifications.
Luxembourg: Culture & History
Luxembourg is a diverse and multicultural city, and does not disappoint in offering a wide range of culture when your bus arrives! There are many museums and art galleries; from the National Mining Museum to the contemporary art gallery ‘am Tunnel.’ Luxembourg’s dynamic culture derives from the bordering of the city on three European countries: France, Germany and Belgium. Of course, for history lovers the city really is a goldmine. From French invasion in the 18th Century to Luxembourg’s constant fight in gaining independence, which became a successful development in the 19th Century, this small European city has an extensive, interesting history.
Nightlife in Luxembourg
The city center of Luxembourg has many bars and clubs for the party goers amongst our bus travelers. If you want to spend your nights in Luxembourg partying then you should check out the popular clubs that the city has to offer. The lounge bar “Secret Garden” is the perfect location to enjoy some good drinks in a chilled atmosphere, whereas “M Club” is popular with the student crowd and a great mix of music. There is, of course, an “upscale” side to Luxembourg too, so if you would like to save on your bus ticket, but splash out at the weekend and experience something a little bit special, perhaps even rub shoulders with some stars, then you should travel to Luxembourg!
Interesting facts about Luxembourg
If you choose your bus travel to Luxembourg one of the first things you may notice is the mixture of dialects, languages and different cultures that the city has. Whether it’s the strong Franconia German dialect or the native ‘Luxembourgish,’ the city is well known for its distinctive dialects and languages. Not only this, but next to Brussels and Strasbourg, Luxembourg hosts some of the most important European institutions being the home of some of the key governmental buildings.
Explore the surrounding areas of Luxembourg
Due to Luxembourg’s central and prime European location, perhaps instead of traveling by bus to enjoy a break in the city center, you could enjoy a camping holiday in one of the surrounding regions. Additionally, south west of the city, under 20km away, is the second largest city of Luxembourg: Esch-sur-Alzette. When you have traveled by bus to Luxembourg, there are countless opportunities to explore the surrounding areas. Travel around Luxembourg itself or why not take a day trip to one of the bordering countries? You could go on a canoe trip on the Mosel River in the Luxembourgish Mosel region, an area famous for its wine.
