Luxembourg's modest 1000 square miles harbour an unlikely many treasures, from UNESCO-listed Medieval fortifications to prised wines of the Moselle, an animated arts scene, cutting-edge architectural creations, seats of prominent EU institutions and abundant natural pursuits, including skiing on the excellent slopes of northern Ardennes, hiking the Valley of Seven Castes or along the trails of Mullerthal that cut through peculiar sandstone rock formations, and soaking the hours away in the sparkling thermal pools of Mondorf-les-Bains.

Spread your net wide when deciding on an itinerary around the Grand Duchy, for some of the area's most enticing attractions lie away from Luxembourg City (although almost always within easy access from here). Some of the unmissable highlights include Luxembourg's Medieval fairy tale castles and much-loved wine route, that stretches across the Moselle River valley connecting the towns of Echternach and Mondorf-les-Bains, the latter inviting weary travellers for a soak in effervescent thermal baths.
The Moselle Valley wine region spans France, Luxembourg, and Germany, with wineries closest to Luxembourg City located within less than a half hour's drive form there. The scenic river valley offers abundant wine tasting opportunities for Riesling and Elbling aficionados; tastings can be arranged at most local wineries, but contacting in advance to check for availability is recommended. If in doubt, try Caves du Sud in Remerschen, Caves St. Martin or Caves Desom Saint-Remy in Remich, or Domaine Mathes and Domaine Alice Hartmann in Wormeldange. The region is also excellent hiking grounds, with hiking trails and cycling paths, with boat tours running along the Moselle.
Fond de Gras
To learn more about Luxembourg's past as a major iron ore mining centre, visit this historic location and take a ride on the steam train that once transported ore from Fond de Gras mines to the nearby town of Petange. Enjoy the scenic ride and pay a visit to the underground mining museum.

Luxembourg's "Little Switzerland" is defined by splendid landscapes and unusual rock formations, which can be explored on foot via the Mullerthal Hiking Trail, spanning a total of 112 kilometres. The regional capital is Echternach, the oldest city in Luxembourg, which is worth a visit for its historic Benedictine abbey, Roman Villa remains, and fantastic local produce.
Château de Vianden
The town of Vianden on the German border contains one of Luxembourg's most attractive castles. Set atop a scenic hill, this Romanesque château is an excellent day trip from Luxembourg City (roughly a 30-minute drive), one that grants ample insight into Medieval life in the area.

Château de Clervaux
Rebuilt entirely after being destroyed during WWII, Château de Clervaux is among the Duchy's most notable attractions. It contains a fascinating UNESCO-listed photography exhibition, Edward Steichen's "Family of Man", which takes its origins at MoMA (Musuem of Modern Art in New York) and has now found a permanent home at Clervaux. The two other on-site museums, one displaying scale models of Luxembourg's castles, another dedicated to the WWII Battle of the Ardennes (which resulted in the original castle's annihilation), are also worth a look around.
Both castles of Beaufort are worth a visit - the first (demolished during the Battle of the Ardennes of WWII) is now in ruins, the second - a Renaissance edifice - can be visited on a pre-booked guided tour during high season. Tasting of a locally made fruit liquor is included in the price of admission.

With its location at the nexus of German and French culinary traditions, Luxembourgish cuisine has absorbed influences from both of its neighbours. Some of the specialities include the quintessential kniddelen (flour and potato dumplings that come with different toppings), fried potato pancakes, imports from southern Germany such as flammekueche (a variety of pizza with creme freche or formage blanc, typically topped off with bacon and onions), schnitzel, as well as seafood from respectable suppliers in the region, and it doesn't end there. For such a small country, Luxembourg also boasts an enviable number of Michelin-starred restaurants (more per capita than in other countries in Europe).
Located smack in the heart of Luxembourg City's old town, Brasserie Guillaume is an incredible address to remember for seafood lovers. Seafood quality is taken very seriously here, with regular deliveries from the region's best suppliers. Treat yourself to an oyster platter, or opt for the excellent value offers of the day.

A strong expat community of young professionals (nearly 50% of the country is now made up of foreigners) with disposable income means that nightlife establishments rarely stand idle, especially in Luxembourg City.

Passport / Visa
Luxembourg can be visited visa-free for up to 90 days by citizens of most European countries, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Israel, UAE and most countries in America. If you are unsure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend contacting the embassy or consulate in your country. International (non-Schengen) travelers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their intended trip in order to enter the Schengen zone. Citizens of Schengen countries can travel without a passport, but must have a valid ID with them during their stay.
Best Time to Visit
Luxembourg can be visited any time of year. Keep in mind, however, that some attractions, especially in the Ardennes area, may only function at full capacity during the high season months of July and August (for example, guided tours to some castles/museums may only be available during those months). Do not let this be a decisive factor though, since most attractions can still be visited on your own.
If you're looking for active pastimes, such as hiking, late spring or early autumn may be your best bets with regard to comfortable temperatures. While the summer season may be better for trips and excursions, the pre-Christmas period with its atmospheric markets is another good time to go, and temperatures rarely drop below zero even in the winter.
By connecting Luxembourg to major European cities and business centres, Luxair Luxembourg Airlines has become the natural choice for travelling from and to Luxembourg and the Greater Region.

Luxembourg's only international airport may be easily reached by public transport (buses 16 and 29, both stop at Gare Centrale). Buses run frequently on a daily basis, between roughly 5.30am and 11pm.
One can also travel to Luxembourg via the German city of Trier (Bus 117, which stops both at the Luxembourg airport and in the city). There are coaches that run to France (Metz, Nancy) and Belgium (Arlon, Bastogne, Marche-en-Famenne) operated by a private provider called Flibco.
Taxis can be hired at the airport, as well as rental cars.
Luxembourg has a rather well-developed public transportation system, which is mad up of buses an trains. It's easy to reach any major town or settlement from Luxembourg City using public transport.

Check the link below for a list of on-duty pharmacies that remain open 24/7 on a rota basis.
There are multiple taxi ranks in Luxembourg (next to the Central Station and behind the Notre-Dame Cathedral are the two main ones). One is no longer required to get into the first cab in line, each taxi company is free to set its own fare, and all fares must be clearly displayed for the passenger to see (in some cases, it may be worth enquiring whether the driver can offer a flat rate to your destination).
For pre-ordering cabs, the Webtaxi service/app (linked below) is a popular option that often has significantly lower rates; you can order a car for a specific time or to arrive as soon as possible.
There are also carpooling services for longer transfers within and outside of Luxembourg.
