The capital city of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg
When you ask people what their favorite city in Europe is most people would say London, Paris, Barcelona, Prague, Amsterdam, Florance, Budapest or even Rome. What most of these cities have in common is that they all have this romanticized picture of how lovely and beautiful these cities are. But what if I told you, you can still travel to a picturesque town or citie that is just as romantic as Paris but without the mass tourism. Would you believe me that a city like that would still exist?
A few years ago my brother took me on a spontaneous trip to Luxembourg. A country that is close to the Netherlands, a country most people pass during their road trips. But Luxembourg is so much more. It’s peaceful, it’s quiet. It’s green and it has the romantic vibes you find in cities like Paris and Prague. And I just keep coming back for more.
It doesn’t matter if you are here in the springtime, summer, autumn or even winter. The sights still look like a fairytale. You can have fresh snow in the morning or a summer breakfast outside. The beautiful colorful buildings, the old castles, bridges, and the beautiful parks, Luxembourg City really has my heart. And it takes only 3 hours from the center of Holland to get there, so Luxembourg is the perfect getaway when you want to plan a fun road trip or looking for a romantic getaway.
There are amazing hotels in the city, or just on the outside of Luxembourg City, located at the Moselle. And when you are in Luxembourg it’s the perfect opportunity to visit the oldest German city, Trier too.
