Luxembourg travel blog: Overview of Luxembourg

Luxembourg is a country located in Western Europe located entirely in the continent, bordering France, Germany and Belgium. Covering an area of ​​only about 2,586 square kilometers with a population of more than 640,000 people (as of Feb 2021), 67% are Roman Catholics. This country is also the last territory in the world where the head of the country is a Grand Duke or Lady of the Grand Duke (Grand Duchess). Due to it is located in the heart of Western Europe, from Luxembourg you can easily travel to other large and small cities located around this country.

Luxembourg Old Quarter.

The Grand Duchy is the state headed by the Grand Duke or Grand Duchess – a title under the king but superior to the Governor-General. So, Luxembourg is the only country in the world to have (female) the Grand Duchess, not the King like other countries.

The Grand Duchy is a term traditionally used by kings to refer to his vassal states. The name is derived from the event in 1815 when the Netherlands became an independent kingdom (Kingdom of Holland (1806–1810)) and Luxembourg was assigned to King Willem I of the Netherlands at that time.

Until 1890 when the Dutch King and the Grand Duke of Luxembourg died without a son succeeding the throne that the two states were separated with Princess Wilhelmina holding the Dutch throne and The Adolphe Duke of Nassau reigned the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

Luxembourg is one of the richest countries in the world.

Some interesting facts about Luxembourg:

  • Luxembourg is a multicultural country with 3 official languages: German, French and Luxembourg. In fact, the Luxembourgish language is German but is pronounced in Luxembourgish style, so most Germans cannot understand and they see Luxembourgish as a local dialect.
  • In addition, Luxembourg (German) is the national language – that is the main language is taught at schools in Luxembourg but the daily communication language is French. This I testify is true.
  • I went from Cologne to Luxembourg when I hitchhiked thanks to the kindness of a German uncle, he said even though it was all German but what Luxembourgers said he could not understand. Also in supermarkets, signs and conversations I see people talking in French.
  • Another interesting thing is that Luxembourg has a very high cultural diversity. Even in the capital Luxembourg city, nearly 50% are foreigners with more than 150 different nationalities living here, but the most foreigner here is still Portugal and some Balkans.
  • In 1957, Luxembourg became one of the six founding countries of the European Coal and Steel Community (a precursor to the European Union) and in 1999, it entered the Eurozone. It is also a co-founding member of many international organizations such as the European Union, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), United Nations.
  • Luxembourg, along with Brussels (Belgium) and Strasbourg (France) are home to the headquarters of the following organizations: European Union, European Court, European Investment Bank, European Investment Fund.
  • Luxembourg economy thrives mainly on the steel industry and currently has a major shift to the finance and banking industry. (Currently this industry contributes 28% of the GDP of Luxembourg). This is considered a paradise for multinational corporations and companies because the tax rates are quite low.
  • Luxembourg is the country with the highest GDP per capita in the world, with 115,839 USD / capita (2019).

July and August are also not a bad choice, because this is the peak tourist season when all attractions in this small country are open but pricing of services is pretty higher.

Luxembourg blog: Getting around Luxembourg

The public transport system in Luxembourg is very convenient and easy to use. All information about the timetable for all public transportation is combined on a website called Mobility Centre which is very convenient for travelers who want to search. Although the city center of Luxembourg City – the largest city in the country of the same name is quite small and you absolutely walking between attractions. However, you can also try the city’s bus system which is also a great option when you’re tired of walking.

Transportation in Luxembourg

Despite being one of the richest countries in the world, it is astounding that the cost of public transport is among the cheapest in Europe. Perhaps because the government has a policy that urges its people to move towards using public transport more (more than 60% of commuters use private car) and wants to close the gap between rich and poor, so the cost of traveling here is really very cheap.

Luxembourg bus map

Even the Luxembourg government is planning to offer free public transport by March 2020 and become the first country in the world to have a free public transport system. (Update: On March 1, 2020 all public transport including trains, trams and buses in the country was free).

At the time of my travel to Luxembourg at the end of 2019, the travel fare here is only €2/trip, €4/day and if you are under 20 years old, it is completely free. In addition, the public transport is also free on Saturdays for everyone.

You should buy Luxembourg Card – A visit and travel card which including free public transport traveling and free admission to more than 60 museums, castles and other attractions, places to visit.

Luxembourg Card

Indeed, I am stunned at the price of €13/day of traveling but you can go anywhere you want while traveling in Luxembourg if you own this card. Being a small country, so with this card, you can go to any city in Luxembourg too, even can be used to go to Trier – the German city bordering Luxembourg but also is another ineresting place to visit.

Museums

  • Mudam – The Contemporary Art Museum of Luxembourg
  • National Museum of History and Art
  • National Museum of Military History
  • Musée du Luxembourg
  • National Museum of Natural History

Luxembourg is a small country, but it owns many interesting museums. During my trip to Luxembourg, due to I did not have much time, so I only visited two museums: National Museum of History and Art and Luxembourg National Museum of Natural History. I also wanted to go to Mudam museum, but unfortunately that day was closed, so I missed it.

About the two museums I have visited, the National Museum of History and Art displays art works and artifacts about many different aspects of Luxembourg. The museum has 7 floors with each different theme on each floor. There are galleries display the development history of Luxembourg to modern times. There are galleries of paintings and pictures that created by famous Luxembourg artists. Or there are galleries that specialize in currencies, badges and many other related to Grand Dukes.

| luxembourg travel blog

The biggest downside here is probably no English illustrations, only German or French. Among 7 floors, there are only 1, 2 floors with English guide, so although there are many things to explore, I do not understand the content of those artifacts. The interesting thing is that there is a floor displaying some rock samples from all over the world and there is a small sample taken from Dalat, Vietnam as well.

The National Museum of Natural History is smaller, consists of only 3 floors and focuses mainly on displaying species from animals, birds to aquatic animals. It also introduces a little about the planets that revolve around the sun.

| luxembourg travel blog

In general, Luxembourg has a lot of interesting museums, if you have a passion to learn about the museums, then traveling to Luxembourg within 1 day is completely not enough. Only the above two museums have taken me at least 4, 5 hours, so if you intend to go to the museum when you come here, you should consider planning a slightly longer itinerary.

Christmas market

Because I come here during Christmas time, I also visit some of the markets here. The largest Christmas market in Luxembourg is located in the old town and the main streets right near the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Personally, I see the Christmas market is also quite beautifully decorated, maybe not as beautiful as in Germany but still better than Sweden or Finland. However, the Christmas atmosphere here is not as bustling as the neighboring countries. Before I came here, I visited Cologne and the neighboring cities and found that Christmas in Germany is much more crowded than Luxembourg.

Vianden Castle

Referring to Luxembourg is referring to the ancient castles built many centuries ago, representing a culture that was once formed and developed in this country. Typically among the castles in Luxembourg is the name Vianden.

Located right in the Northeast of Luxembourg, Vianden castle is testament to the achievements in legendary Gothic architecture style left by the talented “architects” of the Middle Ages. Stepping into the castle you will feel like you are lost in a mythical fairytale world with green forests surrounded, in the middle is a typical romantic classic architecture. Visitors will not be able to miss the chance to see a beauty radiating from Viaden Castle, the largest castle in the west of the Rhine River. Around the castle is a very beautiful and airy landscape. All create a magical picture.

Luxembourg blog: Day trips

Vianden Castle

Vianden castle is probably the most popular day trip destination today in Luxembourg if you stay in the capital city. This castle is located on the northeast border of Luxembourg and Germany, on a 310m high mountain and overlooks the lovely little village of Vianden and the romantic Our River below.

Luxembourg City: Hop On Hop Off Castles & Nature Day Tour

The castle was built on an ancient Roman watchtower from the 10th century and has undergone many historical events with many destruction and abandonment. This famous Luxembourg tourist destination was only rebuilt in 1962 and completed in 1990.

Ticket price: €7. However, if you have a Luxembourg card, traveling, admission tickets or take the cable car to get here are completely free.

Trier

Trier is a small German city, but due to its geographical location on the border with Luxembourg (50km from the capital of Luxembourg city), this is also considered one of the most worthwhile day trip destinations if you intending to travel to Luxembourg with a self-sufficient trip. The city with more than 2000 years of history and many architectural works dating back to the Roman period and recognized by UNESCO as a world cultural heritage has become an important tourist highlight of this city.

The other interesting thing is that even though it is a tourist city in Germany, but with a Luxembourg Card you can still travel here for free, join a free 2 hour guide tour and lots of other interesting activities again. All are free and very close to the capital Luxembourg so why not go?

Luxembourg travel blog: Luxembourg self-sufficient travel itinerary

Luxembourg self-sufficient travel itinerary can last from 3-4 days depending on individual preferences of each visitor. If you only intend to stay in the capital Luxembourg city and walk around the city, 1 day can also do it. However, if you want to visit museums, take some day trips to more remote locations, I think you should stay here for at least 3, 4 days. You can refer to the following self-sufficient Luxembourg travel itinerary:

Most of the tourist attractions of Luxembourg city are located in the old town. So you should take the bus from the central station or from your hotel to come here.

  • Day 1: Old Quarter includes: Notre Dame Cathedral –> Grand Ducal Palace –> National Museum of History and Art –> Casemates du Bock –> Chemin de la Corniche –> Grund.
  • Day 2: Visiting the Old town near Alzette river and valley below: Walking around the valley –> Visit National Museum of Natural History –> Neimenster. Then take a bus to Mudam museum and Adolphe Bridge.
  • Day 3: Take a day trip to Viaden Castle.
  • Day 4: Take a day trip to Trier City.
Old Town

If you have 3 days in Luxembourg, you can follow the above itinerary but remove Trier. If you have only 2 days here, add Vianden Castle on the Day 2 and instead of spend all day to this castle, maybe just 3, 4 hours is enough and skip a few places you are not interested in. Like during my trip, Mudam museum and Grand Ducal Palace were closed, so I couldn’t go inside and had more time than planned.

Luxembourg travel blog: Where to stay?

During my trip to Luxembourg, I stayed at Studio Gasperich (Check rates on Agoda.com or Booking.com). Because I am afraid of the high cost of eating and drinking here, I choose an apartment to stay comfortably. This apartment is 2km from the center as well as tourist destinations. The room is quite good and has a kitchen if you need cooking. Price of €90/night for 2 people. A supermarket is about 5 minutes walk from the house and a bus stop is also nearby. In general, in such a high cost country, €90 for an apartment is very affordable, even cheap.

Studio Gasperich

Below we recommend more best cheap, budget, mid-range and upscale hotels with good ratings and reviews you can refer to.

  • Sofitel Luxembourg Le Grand Ducal, a top rated 5-star hotel with room rates from $204/night (Check rates on Agoda.com or Booking.com).

Luxembourg travel blog: Cost of traveling to Luxembourg

  • Hotel: €45/day/person
  • Eating: €40/day
  • Travel cost, admission: 13 €13/day

The cost of traveling to Luxembourg in self-sufficient way at around €100/person/day. The cost is too good for a high income country like Luxembourg. Although hotel room rates and dining are a bit more expensive than other countries, but in return the cost of traveling and admissions are much cheaper, so traveling to Luxembourg is not too expensive compared to other countries in Europe.

Luxembourg guide: Some Luxembourg travel tips you should know before you go

  • Regarding food and drink, I find the price is higher than other countries, but it is not too unbearable. The buying cost at supermarkets here is about double compares with supermarkets in the Netherlands, Spain, Austria. However, not everything is also expensive, there are things that are equally priced. I think maybe cheaper than Switzerland.
  • Personally, every place in Europe has a cultural, history and attractions worth exploring. And Luxembourg is no exception. Feeling after coming here for myself, Luxembourg is also a worthwhile place to go. It may not be too romantic and flashy here with great works such as Germany, France, and Italy, but there is a very unique feature that I have yet to see in any other European country. There is no old town in Europe that combines in a valley with high rampart walls and a winding river and bridges and houses below. The landscape is a little bit old and peaceful. This unique point is the highlight that makes a difference when talking about Luxembourg tourism, so there is a writer who once said Luxembourg has the most beautiful balcony in Europe.
  • Perhaps because Luxembourg is not so prominent as neighboring countries, the time I came here, I saw less tourists than the German city of Cologne that I went a few days earlier. This is probably one of the rare European tourist destinations that I do not feel too crowded or noisy … In return, the community here is very diverse, so when you go on the street you will see all kinds of races, colors, nationalities – a big different feature from other European countries. If you are looking for a destination that is not too bustling and has a speacial thing different unlike no other, then Luxembourg might be the right choice.
