The city lies on the southern part of the Luxembourg plateau, a large early Jurassic sandstone formation that forms the heart of the Gutland, a low-lying and flat area that covers the southern two-thirds of the country.
The city centre occupies a picturesque site on a salient, perched high atop precipitous cliffs
that drop into the narrow valleys of the Alzette and Pétrusse rivers.
The rivers are spanned by many bridges and viaducts.
The city is set on several levels, straddling hills and dropping into the two gorges.
Striking scenery, a thriving arts scene, and a European history lesson.
As a testament to this city’s cultural importance, its old town and bulwarks have been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Make sure not to miss: the Cathedral of Notre Dame, the Grand Ducal Palace, the Place d’Armes and the Adolphe Bridge.
The red City Sightseeing bus will take you on a wonderful tour of the old and new part of the city.
