Parc Merveilleux
From April to October, this animal theme park offers families and nature lovers a fantastic opportunity to discover the fauna of the world. There are animals from five continents here, from crocodiles and wallabies to antelopes and pelicans. Learn about the wonderful conservation efforts that the park undertakes as well.
Grund (Old Town)
Grund is the oldest part of the city with small typical houses, great views of the Vauban Fortress, and home to the Abbey of Neumunster. The name 'abbey' has remained even if the place was mostly used as a prison! Today, however, it is a meeting centre, art gallery and restaurant. This is a labyrinth of history, parts of which are a Unesco World Heritage Site. Visit the 'Café des artistes' for its joie de vivre and the Nature Museum.The hangout chock full of restaurants & bars in Luxembourg: Les Rives de Clausen. The old closed down “Mousel et Clausen” brewery has given way to a new night spot with trendy bars and restaurants.
Casemates
Discover the underground of Luxembourg by visiting what we called 'the casemates', representing 23 kilometers of underground tunnel network carved from the city’s rocks. The first tunnels were built in 1644 and enlarged over the years. Part of a defense network, the casemates bestowed the name of 'Gibraltar of the North' on Luxembourg. A couple of these tunnels are open to the public and worth exploring.
Vinsmoselle
If you like wine, you must visit Domaines de Vinsmoselle, a set of vineyards and estates that bring together the wine cellars Caves de Greiveldange, Grevenmacher, Remerschen, Stadbredimus and Wellenstein, as well as the production house of cremant (sparkling wine) in Wormeldange. The Château of Stadtbredimus is a mansion formerly occupied by Luxembourg's national poet Edmond de la Fontaine.
Mudam
Renowned architect I.M. Pei chose the historic site of Fort Thüngen to build the Musée d'Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean (Mudam). Located in Kirchberg, the museum showcases a world of contemporary art bringing the best of European talent to the forefront. There are over 200 works by more than 100 artists. Temporary exhibitions, guided tours, a great café and other attractions are also available.
Outdoor Leisure
Luxembourg is a paradise for bikers, golfers, tennis players and horseback riders. There are 575 km of cycling routes to discover, six breathtaking golf courses, and the chance to cross the whole country on horseback with wonderful stops in forests and villages. Outdoor tennis courts abound in the country, but so do indoor ones for those rainy days. Enjoy the variety!
Vauban Castle
Built over the former Fort Vauban at the end of the 19th century, Vauban Castle is now houses art, medieval collections, coins, medals and other curiosities from past centuries. The whole area around Vauban is a pleasure to walk in and reflects the rich history of the area.
Valley of Seven Castles
A ride from the Luxembourg city center up to Echternach in Mullerthal will reveal the Valley of the Seven Castles considered a European Destination Of Excellence. This signposted tour guides you through farmlands and woodlands revealing the uniqueness of castles like Schoenfels in the Mamer Valley, Hollenfels from the 14th Century and two others in Ansembourg, among others.
Vianden and its Castle
None can miss a trip to Vianden Castle and the most typical small town of Vianden with its cobblestone street, typical cafés and medieval Castle on top of the hill. Built between the 11th and 14th centuries over a Roman fort and Carolingian refuge, this is one of the largest and finest feudal residences from Romanesque and Gothic times in Europe.
Banking Museum
This is one of the Duchy's most original museums, and especially important considering Luxembourg's role as a financial centre in the heart of Europe. It is housed in the former teller room of the State and Savings Bank's Head Office. The museum walks you through more than 150 years of Luxembourg's banking tradition in an engaging and entertaining way. Admission is free of charge.
