Allow us to show you some things you might want to see and do in the course of a short break to Luxembourg.

Luxembourg City is the capital of one of Europe’s smallest sovereign states: the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg, measuring a mere 51 miles from top to bottom (32 miles from East to West) harbouring a population of around half a million. The cosmopolitan capital is perched high atop a rocky outcrop, overlooking the rivers Petrusse and Alzette, and offers stunning views from the city’s old ramparts – both by day and by night.

Throughout the Middle Ages Luxembourg City was a mighty fortress -called “Gibraltar of the North”- and parts of the original walls and fortifications remain. It is now a UNESCO world heritage site. Luxembourg is a lively city with gourmet restaurants, outdoor bars and cafés and excellent nightlife.

Luxembourg is only an hour’s flight from London, there are 10 scheduled flights a day from the UK (Heathrow, City, Gatwick & Manchester), and your airport-city trip takes a mere 15 minutes.
