“Majestically set across the deep gorges of the Alzette and Pétrusse rivers, Luxembourg City is one of Europe’s most scenic capitals. Its Unesco-listed Old Town is a warren of tunnels, nooks and crannies sheltering some outstanding museums, as well as lively drinking and dining scenes. The city is famed for its financial and EU centres, making weekends an ideal time to visit, as hotel prices drop dramatically.” – Lonely Planet

Coming

Luxembourg Airport (LUX) is 5 miles (8 km) outside the city center.  Two different bus lines go to the center and pass by the Central Train Station as well. They are free of charge as of March 2020. The only other option is a taxi in. 

If you’re coming from the surrounding area, though, the best way to get in is by train. It is comfortable and easy and leaves you walking distance to the city center. Check prices and timetables HERE

Once here it’s easy to get around on foot.
