I don’t know about you, but I love fitting additional countries into my travels whenever I can, so obviously I was excited to add a day trip to Luxembourg to my Amsterdam/Belgium trip. And that’s the beauty of Europe—tiny countries connected by efficient transportation networks. (Well, that and 3-hour lunches followed by 3-hour naps, of course.)
For this reason, a day trip to Luxembourg is a quick, easy, and exciting addition to places like Brussels, Frankfurt, and Paris. I personally took my Luxembourg day trip after my travels around Belgium and before my visit to Amsterdam. The country of Luxembourg was thus the cream to my cultural Oreo.
So to help you add a little sweetness to your Europe vacation, here’s all you need to know about visiting Luxembourg for a day.
This post was originally published in 2018 but has been completely rewritten and updated for 2023.
7 things to know about Luxembourg before your day trip
You’ll get to learn and experience a lot on your day trip to Luxembourg, but you should still know a few things first. Here are 7 major things that make Luxembourg, Luxembourg.
1. Its location makes it great for a day trip.
Before you book that trip though, you should first know how long a day trip to Luxembourg is actually going to take you. Luxembourg is conveniently located between many popular tourist destinations, so cheers to that! Here’s how long it takes to get to Luxembourg from:
- Brussels: 2.5 hours by car / 3.5 hours by train
- Paris: 3.5-4 hours by car / about 2.5 hours by direct train
- Amsterdam: 4.5 hours by car / 6 hours by train (I talk more about this below)
- Frankfurt: 3 hours by car / 3.5-5 hours by train
- Cologne: 3 hours by car / 4-5 hours by train
- Strasbourg: 2.5 hours by car / 2.5 by train
Keep in mind that taking a day trip to Luxembourg doesn’t necessarily mean you have to return to the same place you started. Don’t forget you can spend one day in Luxembourg on the way to somewhere else. Maybe on the way from Paris to Frankfurt, for example, trading in snails for schnitzels.
2. Luxembourg is small. Nay, tiny.
Luxembourg is one of those tiny, can barely be called a country countries in Europe. In fact, it’s the 7th smallest in Europe. It’s only about the size of Rhode Island, which just happens to be the smallest US state. It’s also one of the least populous countries in Europe with a (2021) population of just over 640,000.
Luxembourg’s tiny size actually makes it the perfect destination for a day trip. Or as I like to call it, Fun Size.
3. Luxembourg has a Grand Duke.
Instead of a president, king, prime minister, or great and powerful wizard, Luxembourg is run by a Grand Duke. This makes Luxembourg a Grand Duchy—the world’s only remaining one, in fact. This is useful information if you watch Jeopardy! a lot. Trust me on that.
Worth noting: While ‘Duke’ is pronounce dook, ‘Duchy’ is pronounced Dutch-y. Not dook-y. Just want to make that clear. Consider that a pro tip.
4. Luxembourg has 3 official languages.
Because Luxembourg is sandwiched between Germany, France, and Belgium, it thus has three official languages—German, French, and Luxembourgish. As if being called a Duchy wasn’t adorable enough.
But yes, you can take a day trip to Luxembourg and get around just fine with speaking only English.
5. Luxembourg is RICH. Like Richie Rich rich.
Luxembourg is one of the richest countries in the world. It’s one of those financial capitals where rich people go to swan dive into their money pits, like Switzerland or wherever George Clooney’s yacht is parked at the moment.
Luxembourg actually has one of the world’s highest GDP per capita which, loosely translated, means *eyes popping out of my head with dollar signs where pupils used to be.*
Regardless of what life is like here for the people in Luxembourg (just mani/pedis all day, I assume), a day trip to Luxembourg is a great way to sample the sweet, financially-secure life.
6. Luxembourg’s capital is Luxembourg City.
To keep it as easy as possible for you on your day trip, Luxembourg’s capital city is just called Luxembourg City. Quick and easy, I tell ya. (What else are you going to name the capital of a country you can walk across before lunch?)
Even more interesting is that, along with Brussels (Belgium) and Strasbourg (France), Luxembourg City is one of the three capitals of the European Union. This means a lot of important (ahem $$$) stuff takes place and/or is headquartered here.
7. Luxembourg is one third of the Benelux trio.
Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and Belgium together form the Benelux union. Benelux is the “formal international intergovernmental cooperation” of those three countries.
This union helped jumpstart what we know today as the Schengen Region (i.e., the reason you almost never get your passport stamped). It was the first multi-country economic integration to happen after WWII. As Belgium themselves put it, this union works to break down borders between nations to increase “prosperity, mobility, safety, and sustainability for everyone.” And that’s beautiful.
Is Luxembourg worth visiting?
If you’re still torn as to whether or not you should take a day trip to Luxembourg, let me clue you in on a few things that make this country so very cool. Here are 5 reasons to visit Luxembourg.
1. Luxembourg is a quick and easy day trip.
Look, I know that’s what this whole post is about, but I’m going to sum it up here. Luxembourg is small enough that you can see a good amount and still feel like you’ve “been to Luxembourg.”
It’s also super clean and just an overall easy place to visit. It’s not chaotic and stressful like, well just about anywhere in Italy, or spread out like Paris, or packed with too many awesome things to do like Mexico City. Luxembourg is juuuust right (for a day trip).
If you have a car of your own, you’ll be able to drive to its many worthwhile sites in just minutes. If not, Luxembourg is just as easily accessible by (free) public transportation.
2. Luxembourg is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has earned the designation of UNESCO World Heritage Site because:
Despite the many assaults from the 15th to the 18th century and the systematic dismantling in the late 19th century, the old quarters and fortifications of the City of Luxembourg enable a complete representation of its historical significance as a fortress and historic city.UNESCO World Heritage Convention
In fact, one of the highlights is that Luxembourg has between 90-130 castles! That’s like a castle per person! And yes, you will be able to see a couple of these even on a quick day trip. They’re everywhere, as you can imagine.
3. History nerds, rejoice!
Yes, medieval/castle-y history, but also everything from 5,000 BCE to World War II too. For starters, Luxembourg has museums dedicated to the Battle of Bulge and the American cemetery where General Patton is buried.
And if you are into WWII history, you should check out my other travel blog—Destination: WWII!
4. Foodies, you can rejoice too!
Remember when I said Luxembourg is rich? As a result, this tiny country also has the highest density of Michelin-starred restaurants in the world (52). That’s like, a Michelin-starred restaurant per person!
Besides that, in 2008 Luxembourg’s Restaurant Chiggeri became the Guinness World Record holder for having the most wines on its wine list. (1,746 bottles of wine on the wall… 1,746 bottles of wine…)
5. Luxembourg’s storybook setting
Despite all those castles Luxembourg has, even its non-castle architecture is of the “fairytale” variety. That and the multi-layered setting it’s in make it one of the most picturesque places I’ve ever been.
If you want gorgeous scenery and photo-worthy scenes around every corner, take a day trip to Luxembourg.
Book the same trip I took here: Brussels to Luxembourg day trip.
But is it worth taking just a day trip to Luxembourg?
Okay, so Luxembourg is great and all, but is it worth visiting if you only have one day to spare? And the answer is, of course! You won’t be able to visit all 130 castles, but you will still have enough time to get a good sampling of what Luxembourg is all about. The main city is compact enough that it’s perfect for a day if that’s all you have.
Yes, take a day trip to Luxembourg if…
1. You simply want to scratch a new country off your list.
I’m a country-counter and not afraid to admit it. After finding out that taking a day trip to Luxembourg is something people do when they visit Brussels, it took me all of 3 seconds to add that to my itinerary.
Being able to combine multiple destinations in one trip is basically my bread and butter. And by that I mean, sometimes that’s all I eat so I can afford to visit these Richie Rich places.
2. You’ve always been curious about Luxembourg
Luxembourg is the kind of magical place you never hear about in the news or in other people’s vacation recaps. You literally only hear about it on Jeopardy! Doesn’t that make you curious to visit? If you want to know what all the hella rich hubbub is about, why not carve out a day trip to Luxembourg?
3. You’re into visiting noteworthy World War II sites
Okay I know this is largely “just me,” but really though. The Battle of the Bulge was kind of a big deal. The history geeks in your travel party will appreciate this one; I promise.
4. You’re already visiting the Netherlands and Belgium.
Come on, you’ve gotta complete the Benelux trifecta. You can’t have snap and crackle without pop. You can’t play rock and paper without scissors. I don’t think the Luxembourgers would like it if you wore just 2/3 of a three-piece suit.
If you’ll already be in the Netherlands and Belgium, you might as well take a day trip to Luxembourg too.
But pass on a Luxembourg day trip if…
1. You prefer a slower pace of travel – As small as it is, you could still spend a week in Luxembourg. (That’s like, 18.5 castles a day!)
2. You’re one of those people who don’t think spending just one day in a country counts as having “been there.” (You do you then.)
3. The passport stamp is all you’re after – Because, no, you can’t get your passport stamped on a day trip to Luxembourg. I know, super upsetting.
Luxembourg passport stamp
Before my day trip to Luxembourg I’d been led to believe I’d be able to get my passport stamped here if I brought it to the tourism office. Instead, all I got was some very weird looks and a full-on brush-off.
I’d been misled, so I’m going to make sure you are not. Unfortunately, no, you cannot pop into the tourism office and get yourself a Luxembourg passport stamp. This isn’t Liechtenstein, after all. Pshh. (Yes, you can totally do this on a day trip to Liechtenstein though!)
Is Luxembourg expensive to visit?
Well, that depends. To me, someone who lives in Boston, the prices in Luxembourg are about the same as here. (Which, yeah, are high AF.) In my experience, Luxembourg isn’t quite as expensive as Iceland, but it’s also nowhere near being a budget-friendly destination like Prague.
The metric I personally use for judging how expensive a destination is, is the cost of a cheeseburger. The cheeseburger I had at Urban in Luxembourg City cost $19. Do with that information what you will.
However, parking in Luxembourg is more than reasonably cheap. (I regularly pay $40 to park in Boston even for just two hours.) And public transportation here (all buses, trains, and trams) is totally free!
Best time to visit Luxembourg
Given its location, the best time to visit Luxembourg for the best weather would be from around May – October. Obviously the summer is going to be the most enjoyable, but it will also be the most crowded time to visit Luxembourg. But if you want to take a tour of the royal palace, you can only do that in July and August and the first half of September.
I personally visited at the end of March/beginning of April. During that time the city was pretty low-key without a lot of tourists around the city. The weather was chilly and, as you can see from the photos, a bit overcast at times though we did get a little sun.
Unfortunately though the trees and flowers hadn’t really bloomed yet. If I were to spend a day in Luxembourg again, I’d like to go a little closer to the summer to see this beautiful city in full bloom and blue skies!
Places to visit in Luxembourg in one day
Because you’ll only have one day in Luxembourg, my recommendation is to come up with what kind of “theme” you want your trip to have. In other words, will your trip be based on:
- World War II history?
- Food and wine?
- Outdoor activities?
- The must-sees in Luxembourg City in one day?
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to see it all in a single day, so narrowing down exactly what you want out of your day trip to Luxembourg will help you make the most of your time. Here’s a brief breakdown of what you can see and do with each theme:
Unless you’ll be in Luxembourg for 130 days, you probably won’t have time to visit all of Luxembourg’s castles. Instead, concentrate your time at these top options:
- Vianden Castle – What you think of as a fairytale castle, in a perfectly enchanted setting. And getting to Vianden from Luxembourg City is fairly easy thanks to the free public transportation.
- Bourscheid Castle – Luxembourg’s biggest castle located on a mist-covered hill.
- Chateau de Clervaux – It’s cool if you like picturesque chateaux and all. Whatever.
If this is your main focus, book a spot on this Luxembourg Nature and Castle Day Trip! You’ll get to visit a few of Luxembourg’s best castles, explore trails and waterfalls, and more.
Luxembourg WWII sites
The most popular WWII-related things to do in Luxembourg are:
- Luxembourg American Cemetery – Final resting place of more than 5,000 American soldiers killed during the Battle of the Bulge.
- Grave of General George S. Patton – He actually died in Luxembourg after the war (and under mysterious circumstances, mind you).
- National Museum of Military History – Focuses mainly on the Battle of the Bulge.
Luxembourg food and wine
Even without a long, long list of Michelin-starred restaurants and a World Record wine list, Luxembourg is a popular foodie town. If you’re letting your taste buds lead the way, follow the Luxembourg Food Guide on Instagram.
If you want to do a little hiking in the Luxembourg country, you’re in luck! Luxembourg has a comprehensive trail network—everything from 110km hikes to some that will only take you an hour or two. Check out Luxembourg’s hiking options here.
Only the Luxembourg must-sees
This is what I concentrated on during my day trip, and what I’m guessing you’re planning to concentrate on too. In that case, read on for the best things to do with just one day in Luxembourg City.
One day in Luxembourg City: things to do
With just one day here, here are the most noteworthy things to do in Luxembourg:
The Old Town & City Center
Like every other city in Europe, Luxembourg’s Old Town is where you want to be. Here in the old town you’ll be able to just stroll and check out the architecture, explore the 17th century Notre Dame Cathedral, and see the Grand Duke’s Royal Palace (and the royal guard who I was told guards absolutely nothing).
Luxembourg’s many museums
As small as it is, Luxembourg has a relative ton of museums. Some of the most popular include:
- The National Museum of Art and History (Musée National d’Histoire et d’Art) – Free art museum dedicated to Luxembourg’s art and history, obviously.
- Lëtzebuerg City Museum (the Luxembourg City History Museum) – If you want to know more about Luxembourg’s history, go here.
- Musée Dräi Eechelen – The medieval history of Luxembourg told inside a cool fortress.
- Neimënster – You can take guided tours of the Benedictine Abbey that’s in all your pictures.
Check out the best views of the city
Luxembourg City is a super photogenic town and there are plenty of places from which to get amazing views. You can find the the best views in Luxembourg here:
- Pfaffenthal Panoramic Elevator – Glass elevator that takes you up 233 feet in the city center. (One of the newest attractions in Luxembourg and free to use!)
- Chemin de la Corniche – Known as the “most beautiful balcony in Europe.”
- The Bock Casemates – Excellent views of Luxembourg City from this ancient fortress once used to defend the city.

1-day Luxembourg itinerary
A lot of this will depend on when you arrive and when you need to leave, but ideally your one day Luxembourg itinerary should go something like this:
1. Bock Promontory
Head first to the Bock Promontory and Casemates. From here you’ll get to experience some of Luxembourg’s history and get a fantastic view over the city and the Neimënster Abbey. Quite an introduction!
2. Walk the Chemin de la Corniche
Leave the Bock and walk along the Chemin de la Corniche, a beautiful promenade that offers even more stunning views of the town. Honestly, I couldn’t believe how beautiful this simple little walk was.
3. Luxembourg Old Town
From there it’s just a short walk to Luxembourg’s Old Town. Pop into the Notre Dame Cathedral then check out Place d’Armes, the city’s main square. Head north one block to stroll along the Grand-Rue, the city’s pedestrian-only shopping street.
4. Palais Grand-Duchal
Your next stop should be the Palais Grand-Ducal, the palace of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg. Just from the outside this building is impressive, which is good because that’s probably as far as you’ll get.
However, they do offer guided tours from the middle of July until the beginning of September. (Ticket sales start at the end of June.) If you’ll be taking your day trip to Luxembourg during this time, definitely book a tour of the palace because WOWZA.
5. Time for lunch!
Take your pick from any number of restaurants in central Luxembourg City. Or follow in my footsteps and have a more casual lunch at Urban Bar and Restaurant, just around the corner from the palace. (It’s delish!)
6. Pick a museum
If you’re a museum lover, pick a museum that sounds interesting to you for after lunch. I mentioned a few earlier, but you can find an entire list of Luxembourg museums here.
7. Place de la Constitution
After your museum visit (or after lunch if you skip the museums), walk over to Place de la Constitution.
Besides all the meaning behind this memorial square (more war stuff – if you wanna know, let’s chat!) you can also get great views over the Pétrusse Valley here of the tower spire of the Bank Museum (of course there’s a bank museum!) and the Adolphe Bridge.
8. Grund district
From Place de la Constitution, head over to the Cité Judiciaire á Luxembourg at the Plateau du Saint-Esprit. From there, you can take the free public elevator down to the lower part of the city—the Grund district, the self-proclaimed most authentic part of the city.
Down here, take a leisurely 10-minute walk through the neighborhoods and streets that are just too cute to be real. Make your way down to the river, past the monastery, and towards the Melusina Statue—the pink mermaid under the willow tree. (My favorite spot in Luxembourg City.)
9. Pfaffenthal Panoramic Elevator
From the Melusina, another 10 scenic minutes will take you to the Pfaffenthal Panoramic Elevator. This glass elevator is free to ride and will take you back up to the high part of Luxembourg City via a super scenic ride.
10. Time for dinner!
Luxembourg City is your dining oyster! There are too many great places here to narrow it down. I mean, you’re in a country that’s part French and part German—the food is bound to be amazing wherever you go. Head back towards the Old Town and check out which restaurants look the best.
Luxembourg walking tours
If you’d like to leave navigation of the city to someone else on your day trip to Luxembourg (and I don’t blame you), check out these available Luxembourg walking tours: (I did a walking tour of Luxembourg City myself and it was so stress-free!)
1. Luxembourg City Walking and Wine Tasting Tour – This small-group 2-hour guided tour visits the city’s top sights, provides commentary so you can learn about all the stuff you’re seeing, and includes a tasting of some Luxembourg wines.
2. Luxembourg City Guided Walking and Cultural Tour – The same as above, just without the wine. A no-nonsense 2.5-hour guided city walking tour to Luxembourg’s main sights with great reviews!
More Luxembourg day tours
Besides walking tours, there are actually a lot of other fun tours you can take in Luxembourg. I already mentioned the Nature and Castle Tour, but also check out these options for other ideas:
- Luxembourg River and Wine Day Tour – Such a unique way to see Luxembourg and taste the local sparkling crémant!
- Hop on Hop off City Line – Ride up top and get an express tour of Luxembourg from a great view.
- Best of Luxembourg City Guided e-Bike tour – You’ll be able to see so much more than by walking!
- Discover Luxembourg’s most photogenic spots with a local – Want great photos while you’re here? Book this tour!
Day trip to Luxembourg from Brussels
Taking a day trip to Luxembourg is actually one of the most popular things to do when visiting Belgium. It seems almost mandatory actually; it’s in the title of the guidebooks for Pete’s sake.
If you want to make a day trip to Luxembourg, Brussels is your best starting point because it’s the closest and most accessible major city. (And because Brussels isn’t all that exciting. You’ll probably be looking for excuses to leave anyway.)
Brussels to Luxembourg by car
Driving from Brussels to Luxembourg City will take you somewhere between 2 and 3 hours each way. If you have your own car, fantastic! You’ll have the chance to visit more of Luxembourg outside the city and you’ll likely have even more time to spend in Luxembourg since your day won’t be dictated by transportation schedules.
The drive is pretty straightforward and there are parking lots and garages all over Luxembourg City. They even have this handy website that tells you how many spots are left in each lot, in real time.
Need a rental car? Check out the best deals in Brussels here.
Brussels to Luxembourg by train
Taking the train from Brussels to Luxembourg is just as quick and easy. Via the direct train you can get there in about 3 hours and the ticket will cost you just $27. (Getting back is close to the same.) You can check their current schedules and prices here.
As of this posting, the first train of the day from Brussels to Luxembourg is 5:33am, and the last train from Luxembourg back to Brussels is 8:11pm. So you could potentially arrive in Luxembourg around 9am and have about 11 hours to spend there.
Keep in mind that without a car you’ll have to spend most of your day trip to Luxembourg within the city limits and much of your day will be determined by the train schedule. But, you won’t have to deal with driving, parking, construction, etc.
From Luxembourg’s main train station, it’s just a 20-minute walk into the city center, or you can always grab a taxi as well. They even have Uber there.
Brussels to Luxembourg day tours
Another option that requires the least amount of money, stress, and planning is to take an organized day trip to Luxembourg from Brussels from a reputable tour company. This is the route I took because sometimes I do prefer the path of least resistance.
I really enjoyed my Brussels to Luxembourg day tour and would highly recommend it to anyone. We had a private bus, our own guide who led us on an entertaining walking tour of Luxembourg City (and had a beer with us later on), plenty of free time to explore the city on our own, an extra stop in the beautiful town of Dinant, and we even saved a dog’s life on the way back to Brussels! All-in-all, a satisfying, rewarding, and perfect day trip to Luxembourg.
There are a few organized day tours from Brussels, but the one I personally took is this Dinant and Luxembourg Day Trip from Brussels. This is the most popular and well-reviewed option and I can attest to how quick and easy it is! We saw all the major sites, ate some excellent food, and all for so cheap!
Book my same Brussels to Luxembourg day trip here.
Day trip to Luxembourg from Amsterdam
Unfortunately, taking a day trip to Luxembourg from Amsterdam probably isn’t the best idea. At least, not unless you plan to spend the night in Luxembourg.
There are actually a lot of searches for Amsterdam to Luxembourg day trips, and this is kind of shocking considering the distance between the two cities. Your entire day would be spent in the car with the exception of like two hours in Luxembourg. Here me out…
Amsterdam to Luxembourg by car
Even if you have your own car, driving from Amsterdam to Luxembourg will take around 4.5 hours each way. Yes, you can technically make it to Luxembourg and back in a single day, but that doesn’t leave much time to actually spend in Luxembourg. And that’s on a good day, without traffic or having to stop to save a dog’s life.
Amsterdam to Luxembourg by train
The quickest train from Amsterdam to Luxembourg is still 6.5 hours and includes a change, each way. And it costs $80, each way. And the last train back is at 6:00pm. (For the record, you could totally rent a car for cheaper than that and drive yourself anyway.)
Clearly, a day trip to Luxembourg from Amsterdam is not ideal. If, let’s say, visiting Luxembourg is the last item on your bucket list and this will be your last chance ever, then sure, go for it! Otherwise, maybe just take a day trip from Amsterdam to Keukenhof instead.
Day trip to Luxembourg from Frankfurt
Frankfurt, Germany is another city that’s not too far from Luxembourg to make a day trip there too unreasonable. The drive from Frankfurt to Luxembourg averages about 3 hours each way.
There are no direct trains between Frankfurt and Luxembourg, and a one-way trip will take between 4-5 hours and cost between $35 – $60. So even though it’s relatively close, the logistics just aren’t where you’d want them to be for a day trip.
That being said, if you have your own car and the motivation to do it, you can definitely squeeze in a day trip to Luxembourg from Frankfurt.
Paris to Luxembourg day trip
At around 4 hours each way, driving to Luxembourg from Paris, like Amsterdam, wouldn’t really leave you much time in Luxembourg to make a day trip worthwhile. That also depends on where in Paris you’re leaving from since even getting from one side of the city to the other can take quite a while.
However, this is where things get interesting. The train from Paris to Luxembourg is much faster at about 2.5 hours direct each way. So, your opportunity for a Paris to Luxembourg day trip just opened back up! These super fast train tickets aren’t cheap though—ranging from $90 to around $120 each way.
Cologne to Luxembourg day trip
Cologne, Germany is another nearby city from which you can take a reasonably quick day trip to Luxembourg. The drive between these two cities is just about 2.5 hours. Getting from Cologne to Luxembourg via train averages 3.5 hours each way and costs between $40-$50.
Strasbourg to Luxembourg day trip
Strasbourg, France is another popular tourist destination that isn’t too far from Luxembourg. This drive takes around 2.5 hours also.
There’s even a direct train from Strasbourg to Luxembourg that takes just 1.75 hours and costs $50. However, the earliest it leaves is 12:30pm and the latest it returns is 6:45pm. You wouldn’t arrive in Luxembourg City until the afternoon, but that still gives you about 4 hours to work with so if that works for you, set it up!
Where to stay in Luxembourg City
If you wanted to visit Luxembourg from Amsterdam, Frankfurt, or another city that’s just a wee bit too far for a day trip, consider spending the night so you can still get your visit in. Here are a few well-reviewed hotels in Luxembourg City to consider.
Budget: Youth Hostel Luxembourg City – Helloooo budget destination prices! Just a 10-minute walk from Place d’Armes, free private parking, city views.
Mid-range: Hotel Parc Belle-Vue – Panoramic terrace, their own restaurant, private parking, and a 24-hour front desk.
High-end: Le Royal Hotels & Resort Luxembourg – Basically right there in Place d’Armes, newly renovated rooms, full wellness/spa facilities, on-site bar and restaurant, and all the fun extras.
What to pack for a day trip to Luxembourg
For your day trip to Luxembourg, here are a few essential packing items to consider:
European plug adapter(s) so you can charge all your devices. Even if you don’t plan to stay the night, I would still bring a charger with you since it’s going to be a long day.
Anti-theft purse because petty theft is the signature theft of Europe. I’m not saying you have to particularly be on the lookout in Luxembourg, but I’m not saying you don’t either. Besides, anywhere you go in Europe you need to keep yourself and your valuables safe. I have gear from both Travelon and PacSafe and I swear by them both.
Refillable water bottle so you can stay hydrated throughout your day trip to Luxembourg—on the walking tours, on the bus rides, always.
The Expats by Chris Pavone – Great suspenseful novel that all takes place in Luxembourg. This was kind of the first time I started thinking about visiting here.
I hope you have a great time on your day trip!
