Do you want to visit impressive attractions? You’re looking for the most famous shopping miles or enchanting boutiques for the perfect shopping trip? Or you’re interested in fascinating buildings of art and culture? We’ve compiled a selection for you.

    • Grand Ducal Palace

      Noble residence
      The Grand Ducal family resides in the second and third storey of this genteel building when they are in town. The oldest parts date back to the 13th century. This has been the seat of the Grand Duke since 1890. If you see two soldiers on parade and the national flag is hoisted, then the Grand Duke is in residence. The Chamber of Deputies meets in the newest part, built in 1856. Visitors have access to some of the foyers, halls and salons, which are decorated with artistic stuccoed ceilings, antique furniture, tapestries and oil paintings; however, tours only run from the middle of July until early September.

    • Cathédrale Notre Dame

      Landmark
      The three steeples of Notre Dame can be seen from far away. They are the city's landmark. The church is one of the few late Gothic buildings that also impress people with little knowledge of art history. The interior is flooded with light and full of artistic embellishments. The Saxon master builder Daniel Müller created the lovingly ornate main portal with the statues of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and the magnificent mother of god.

    • Place d’Armes

      Place to relax
      The Place d’Armes is THE square in Luxembourg and the centre of the city. This is where the fortress soldiers once paraded. Today it's a pedestrian zone and the square is ringed by numerous streetside cafés and decorative lime trees. This is a place to relax, both for tourists and locals. In the summer there are concerts and numerous events held here.

    • Corniche and old town

      Beautiful vantage point
      The Corniche has been called the «most beautiful balcony in Europe». It lies on the edge of the plateau where Luxembourg's old town is located. From the Corniche you have a great view of the cliffs and the remainder of the old fortress. Below you can see many old homes belonging to craftspeople. We recommend you start your walk behind the building housing the state archives below the Place du St. Esprit. From there, you can stroll along the entire panorama up to the cliffs. It's only a hop, skip and a jump from there to the picturesque old town. The whole walk takes about one hour.

    • Kirchberg / European Centre

      EU Centre
      Kirchberg began as a small, picturesque village outside the gates of the city. In the Sixties the first buildings of the European Community sprang up here. Large blocks of flats, banks, sports facilities, shopping centres, and the Luxembourg Trade Fair premises followed. The most recent architectural wonders are the extravagant buildings of the new philharmonic, the Mudam. Behind it rises the core of the EU, the Kirchberg European Centre, surrounded by a number of new institutional buildings. One of the most interesting architecturally is the extravagant Hémicycle, the main conference hall.
