April 2022 Luxembourg

I always imagined Luxembourg as a grand and prestigious kind of place, and the city did not disappoint! There are a lot of great old sites, but there’s quite a bit of new construction and remodeling going on too. It’s amazing how clean they seem to keep the city; it’s beautiful!

When you get out of the train station you’re met by a wide boulevard to the right that runs through the city to Pont Adolphe (a bridge) overlooking Parcs de la Pétrusse, a big beautiful park down near a small river where there are paths, historic landmarks, and a new skate park (Skatepark Péitruss). If you continue across the bridge you come to a concentration of shops, restaurants, and more historic sites, and eventually, you’re likely to find yourself looking across another river (the Alzette) to the northeast. Across the river, on another peak, you’ll see some high rises and what I believe is a developing new area. I see listings for nice-looking hotels, the Philharmonie Luxembourg, and the Parlement européen building on Google, so it might just be a business district. I’m interested to see what comes of it though. I walked through part of it, but it felt cold and not quite so welcoming due to a lot of construction. Maybe I’ll get back in a few years and see what it’s developed into.
