Luxembourg trip report

 

Luxembourg



Luxembourg is a tiny country that is home to half a million people, over 200 investment banks and a number of EU agencies. "Men, horses & forests", that's what a sign at the entrance of Luxembourg told visitors to expect.

 

Luxembourg City

With its historic architecture, cobbled streets and cliffs blending with the cityscape, the walkable capital city is a nice place to spend a day but not more. What it lacks is liveliness. In fact for fun, local residents back in the day used to turn to heavy alcohol drinking sessions. Raspberry flavoured wine was particularly popular until drink driving laws stopped the practice. Now locals usually travel to France or Belgium for their entertainment.
