Even though my stay in Luxembourg was short I felt as if I was able to get a good feel for the city. Luckily, I was able to stay with friends and I found the overall people of Luxembourg to be extremely friendly. Luxembourg may be a small country compared to most, it is a must-see destination in my book. Here are my Top 5 Things To Know When Traveling to Luxembourg, Luxembourg with a few of my favorite places to visit.

1. Must Visit Spot- The Corniche

For a spectacular view of the city, this is quite possibly my favorite spot. This beautiful balcony follows the city walls created by the Spanish and the French and is said to be the most beautiful balcony in Europe. These photos truly do not do it justice. I was fortunate enough to see it before it started snowing and after it started snowing and it truly was a winter wonderland. It looked as if it had come straight out of a fairytale. No matter what time of year you visit Luxembourg this is a must see.

 

2. The Food

Luxembourg happens to be a pretty pricy city and the food is not cheap either, so be prepared for a hit to your wallet when eating out. That being said there are some amazing places to eat like A La Soupe specializing in well you guessed it soup! It was super delicious and surprisingly affordable. I highly recommend having lunch there.

3. Notre-Dame Cathedral

 

The Notre Dame Cathedral, the only Cathedral in Luxembourg, was not only stunning on the outside but even more stunning on the inside. The stained glass was gorgeous and the details inside were exquisite.  It’s also a good place to stop and sit and get out of the cold.

 

4. The Language

In Luxembourg, they speak Luxembourgish, but many people there also speak German, French, and English. There are a lot of people who commute into Luxembourg city to work from other countries like France and Germany so there may be some who don’t speak English. But generally, I felt comfortable speaking to most people there in either English or German.

5. Christmas Markets

If you happen to go near Christmas Time I highly recommend the Christmas Markets. I feel like no matter where you are in Europe around the holidays the Christmas Markets are a must see and a must drink! You should definitely try the hot wine it is super yummy and will heat you up when it’s cold outside
