Things to See in Luxembourg
The Luxembourg Ardennes
In addition to plenty of impressive views, the Ardennes boasts numerous fortified farms, fortresses, and castles on the hilltops. This is where you’ll get to see forested plateaus, wooded hills, hidden valleys and cliffs in stark contrast to a rather flat landscape that surrounds the Luxembourg City.
Perched atop a rocky promontory near the town of Vianden, the castle is among the largest and the most attractive residences in Europe. It was built in the 14th century and was later restored in the 20th century. A chairlift ride from the castle to the hillside platform will give you breathtaking views.
It was built in the 17th century and is one of the most visited tourist attractions in southern Luxembourg. Initially a Jesuit church, this Roman Catholic Cathedral features several Renaissance adornments and elements which also makes it the finest example of the late gothic architecture.
They form a section of Luxembourg City’s Old Fortifications, the country’s only UNESCO World Heritage site. The Casemates are exemplary of the military architecture and the surrounding valley makes them a more beautiful site. You can take a tour of the vast network of underground galleries and passages.
