Luxembourg

If I am being honest I don’t have too much to say about this country other than it is utterly pleasant. It is the perfect weekend getaway full of charm and one of my favorite Old Towns in Europe. Wander the streets and explore a bit, sit at a cafe and drink some wine and if you have the means get out of the city for a day. You might not need a ton of time but the time spent will be well worth it.

When to go

Throughout Europe, the shoulder season of spring and fall is generally the best time to visit due to pleasant weather but fewer crowds and lower prices than high summer. In Luxembourg, late June – August is peak season and May – early June and September – October are shoulder seasons making the the best time to visit. Winter is snowy but not freezing.
