Road Trip Facts

LUXEMBOURG

 

Luxembourg is perfect for a mini-road trip: With 640,000 inhabitants, the country measures just 81 kilometres from north to south and 55 kilometres east to west.

But this doesn’t mean that there isn’t plenty to see here. On the contrary, the small area is peppered with castles and palaces, wine is grown along the Moselle, and the capital is a cultural jewel. By the way, the mother tongue of most locals is called “Lëtzebuergesch” (Luxembourgish) and is a Mosel-Franconian language that until the 20th century was considered a dialect of German rather than a language in its own right.

Must Drive

In the north-east of Luxembourg lies Müllerthal, also known as “ Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland“. On the way to Predigtstuhl, the road leads through the forest where you can view the impressive sandstone rock formations.

Must-See

The Grand Ducal Palace, originally a town hall, is the city residence of the Grand Ducal family and can be visited in summer.

Must-Eat

The names of Luxembourg’s delicacies are real tongue twisters: Gromperekichelcher, Bouneschlupp, Judd mat Gaardebounen. But behind them lies hearty home cooking: potato pancakes, bean soup and beans with smoked pork neck.
