  • Notre-Dame Cathedral image

Notre-Dame Cathedral

30, rue du Cure, Luxembourg


Located in the city centre on the main tourist square, its tall spires are very hard to miss. The Catholic Cathedral was built between 1613-1621 by the Jesuits to serve as a church to their college (now the National Library). Although the Notre-Dame Cathedral has many Renaissance elements, it is the good example of late gothic architecture. The architecture is magnificent, with a lot of details. Walls are filled with angels and each bit of the wall is different from the other. The special ambience you will feel there especially during Christmas.

Vianden Castle (45 km out of city)

Montée du Château, 9408 Vianden, Luxembourg

webcastle-vianden.lu phone+352 83 41 08 1

Vinden Castle (built between the 11-14th century) rose like a phoenix from the ashes. Or in this case, more of a pile of stones that were once vast hall walls, towers and defensive walls. Castle had its best season in the 13th century, as the Count's seat was one of the largest residences in the former feudal Europe. The worst period was at the beginning of the 19th century. Neither wars nor fire, but the greedy owner converted the castle in ruins. It is located about 45 km out of the Luxembourg city and it is easy to get there. Trains go every 20 min. and then there is a bus- whole trip (which takes about 1 hour) with pleasant scenery along the way.
