In Luxembourg City, historic buildings and contemporary architecture go hand in hand. Explore the charms of this small European capital and discover why it is a popular and unique tourist destination. From the Grand-Ducal palace to the melting pots of urban life and culture, the visit also takes you on a stretch of the Wenzel trail. This unique circular trail leads past numerous cultural highlights and historic heritage, which includes the Casemates, the area of Grund and the Neumünster abbey. To get a feeling for what Luxembourg has to offer in terms of culture, you will also visit the capital’s museums such as the Musée d’Art Moderne (Mudam), designed by the famous Chinese American architect Ieoh Ming Pei and the Philharmonie, designed by Christian de Portzamparc.
Discover the regions of the unexpected Luxembourg!
The Luxembourgish Ardennes are located in the north of the country and are synonymous with enchanted forests and woodlands. Valleys and green landscapes, nature reserves, castles and walking trails are characteristic of this region. During your stay you will discover the town of Vianden, home to a beautifully restored castle towering over the valley. The exhibition The Family of Man brought together by Edward Steichen in 1955 is displayed in Clervaux. Due to its humanist and universal value, this famous photo collection is part of Unesco’s Memory of the World Register.
The Mullerthal region, also known as Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland, in the north east of the country is characterised by impressive rock formations and plateaus, which are both integral part of the famous Mullerthal Trail. The press trip will also explore a small stretch of this trail. In addition, it will take you to the medieval town of Echternach, the oldest city in the country. A visit to the breath taking Renaissance castle in Beaufort is also on the agenda.
The Moselle region in the east of the country is ideal for culinary adventures and intrinsically linked to wine tourism. With the river winding through the valley, the region is also appreciated for its large offer in terms of water sports. The Moselle region is home to the internationally known village of Schengen. The picturesque village is one of Europe’s strongest symbols and famous for the Schengen agreement signed in 1985. At the same time, Schengen is also home to talented vintners who produce some of the country’s best white wines and crémants.
Last but not least, is the region of the red rocks in the south of Luxembourg. It is synonymous with the country’s former steel industry and the origin of Luxembourg’s prosperity. Its industrial wasteland was part of an ambitious transformation: the development of the university area of Belval, one of the most impressive urban developments in Europe. You will also discover the leisure activities linked to this region.
By now you will have a feel for what to expect: from culture, people, heritage, nature to regional products, these elements are all part of Luxembourg’s identity and regions. This press trip will give you a great overview of the unexpected Luxembourg.
