Summer Road Trip | Luxembourg

Having received an invitation to the wedding in Luxembourg, we decided to build a city break around it. The Brainy One has visited several times for work, but it was a new destination for The Boy Child and me.

It didn’t disappoint.

A landlocked country, squashed in between Belgium, France and Germany, Luxembourg is beautiful. It’s a small country which embraces both its history and its place at the centre of Europe. The people are friendly, with a ‘live and let live’ attitude – show the locals due respect and visitors will find them welcoming and friendly in return.

Luxembourg’s national motto is ‘mir wölle bleiwen wat mir sin‘, translating as ‘we want to remain what we are‘. Considering the nation’s history and the number of times it’s changed hands and had other cultures imposed on it, this seems not an unreasonable plea to make.

Luxembourg City is a small capital with a big heart. The old town in on the UNESCO World Heritage List and the city has more Michelin-starred restaurants per capita than any other country in the world.

I know that we’ll be returning in the future.
