I have to admit that I knew very little about Luxembourg and, after Germany, I had low expectations about the place. How wrong I was!
The historic center of Luxembourg City, with its stately architecture and natural beauty, is every bit as interesting and photogenic as any European capital. It is well worth a visit.
|A used car dealer with some interesting oldtimers and one new Alfa.|
|One of many steep streets in Luxembourg, winter tires are apparently mandatory as pretty much every car had them.|
|Notre-Dame Cathedrale towering in the distance.|
|The valley of the Alzette river.|
|This tiny river carved out this huge gorge.|
|Modern buildings in the new parts of town.|
|Impressive stone viaduct. One of many.|
|Every city should look like this. The oldest part of town, the Grund, on the banks of the Alzette.|
|Another very steep street.|
|The Alzette up-close.|
|Inside the Grund.|
|Layer upon layer of old fortifications. If only the walls could talk.|
|In front of Notre-Dame Cathedral.|
|The towering building across the Petrusse Valley is actually a bank.|
|Adolphe bridge over the Petrusse.|
Tomorrow we are in France.
