On April 22, we drove from Metz to Luxembourg. It was a 40 minute drive through French countryside and when we arrived in the actual country of Luxembourg, I didn’t know we had crossed the border. Apparently there used to be a border crossing and signs. All that’s left is an old white building off to the side of the road. Looks like a shack that someone forgot about. Driving through Luxembourg felt like driving through any other major European city, small roads, beautiful architecture, and people. We parked the car and began our own tour of the city.
Luxembourg still has the remains of an old fortress wall along the city. There’s a beautiful walking path you can follow that will take you along the wall and through the city. It’s only about an hour and a half of walking but it’s super peaceful because it is slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of the city. There’s also a river that runs along the city that has small walking trails along it. It’s shaded and a bit hidden but if you need a break from architecture and want to feel like you’re in a park or the wilderness, it’s a nice place to hang out.
After the walk, we enjoyed some drinks over looking the water and the city. We sat there in the sun and just took in the quietness of this beautiful city. Sometimes visiting a new city on a week day is almost better because you get the chance to have the city to yourself while others are working.
I loved wandering the city and seeing the architecture. The nightlife is a whole different world.
Until then, here’s the beautiful city.
