In continuation to my last blog on Luxembourg city, I am putting down my list of attractions in the Luxembourg city, which you can visit by walk.
Check my other blog to learn few things about Luxembourg prior planning a day trip.
Journey from Metz, France to Luxembourg City
I took the morning train from Metz Gare(France) and arrived in Luxembourg city central station at 10:22 am after an hour ride. I passed the journey time by gazing at the green valleys through the window and awaited to start my self guided walking tour to explore the city in a new country.
Arrival at the Luxembourg city Central station
The central train station is the primary station of Luxembourg city, which is well connected with all major European cities. It has approximately 14 platforms and an information centre near the entrance /exit of the station.
Tip:- If you take the stairs down just before the entrance/exit gate, you will find the toilet and in order to use the toilet, 70 cents needs to be paid.
The station is also equipped with few waiting rooms facility for the passengers. I spotted two cafes in the station to have a quick bite and coffee. Location wise, the station is right in middle of the modern city centre, so once you come out of it and walk in any direction, you will see a ton of shops.
First look of the Luxembourg city centre
This is like an any typical modern city centre where you will find the shops, cafes and corporate offices. However, once you enter the other end of the city which comprises of the ruins of old fortifications, you will have the pleasure of visiting this country.
So I started my journey of seeing the 10 attractions in the city primarily near the old town region. Though my list had few more places to visit, but I could visit them, as it was freezing cold on that day with foggy weather. Temperature remained one degree through out the day. Well, as I left few places, it would give me a chance to visiting them in future.
I started my voyage by navigating the google maps and saw these ruins of stone houses and fortresses at the lower level from a pedestrian & Motorway bridge known as Luxembourg Parallsale. This contrasting sight was pretty surprising for me; as such ruins from olden times we generally find in the outskirts of a city. However, in Luxembourg city, the urban city centre is built around these old wreckage of fortresses and casemates without harming them.
