Looking for interesting places to visit in Luxembourg?

Luxembourg is perhaps most famously known for being the cultural capital of Europe and the famous exhibition - The Family Man Exhibition - which is permanently on display in Clervaux.

Luxembourg is one of the top ten vacation spots in Europe and truly has plenty of attractions and things to offer such as enjoying winery tours and touring old castles.

Whether you’re planning to come for a vacation or on a romantic weekend break abroad, you’ll enjoy spending time and exploring everything that Luxembourg has to offer. Here it’s some of my favorite places to visit in Luxembourg:

Luxembourg City

Luxembourg City is without a doubt the biggest draw in the country and it's the cultural heart of Luxembourg.

Luxembourg City is a medieval city and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which doesn’t come as a surprise since the city is simply stunning!

Most of the interesting places to visit in Luxembourg are located in Luxembourg City, and the old part of town is where you’ll find most of the top attractions such as the famed Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Grand Ducal Palace and the Museum of the Fortress of Luxembourg at Fort Thungen which is one of the best preserved fortresses in Europe.

Place d'Armes is another interesting place to visit in Luxembourg City as it’s the focal point of the city, especially in the summer when the square fills with side-walk cafes, open-air markets and live-music bands.

There is also a beautiful WWII memorial honoring American servicemen in Hamm Quarter.

If you are a history buff, be sure to visit the National Museum of History and Art, Mudam Luxemborg, the National Museum of Natural History‎ and the old military underground fortifications at Casemates du Bock.


Echternach is located on the border with Germany and being just an hour’s drive east of Luxembourg City, it’s an excellent place for a pleasant day trip from Luxembourg City.

Echternach is a charming town and it's on my list of interesting places to visit in Luxembourg because it’s the oldest town in Luxembourg.

There are many small boutique shops where you can enjoy some shopping, as well as a beautiful city park (Stadtpark) where you can take a relaxing stroll marveling at the beautiful flower beds.


Vianden is another little charming town located on the border with Germany, around a half-hour drive from Echternach so it’s worth passing by Vianden if you’re visiting Echternach on a day trip.

I added Vianden to the list of interesting places to visit in Luxembourg because of the many interesting historic landmarks found such as Vianden Castle (pictured) which offers lovely views of Vianden old town.

Wandering around Vianden old town is another fun thing to do and a great way to soak in the beautiful buildings and medieval streets.

If you’re exploring Vianden on a short day trip, two attractions that you can’t afford missing out on are a chairlift ride to the top of the mountain and a tour of Vianden Castle.

If you’ve never been in a castle before, you’ll enjoy exploring the many rooms in Vianden Castle while checking out old medieval armors and old medieval weapons.


The small town of Larochette is another great day trip opportunity from Luxembourg City, especially since it's only located a half-hour drive north of the capital city.

Larochette is also a charming town with a lovely atmosphere, beautiful architecture and a castle. Larochette Castle is the main reason to add Larochette to the list of interesting places to visit in Luxembourg.

You can also tour Larochette Castle’s many rooms and areas and get a glimpse of life in an 11th century fortress. Truly memorable!


Diekirch is one of the larger towns in the country and it’s located north of Luxembourg, around 30 minutes drive from either Larochette and Vianden.

Diekirch is a picturesque town home to the famed Diekirch Beer. Diekirch has peculiar narrow and winding roads which are a joy to stroll, especially on sunny summer's day.

The National Museum of Military History is the main reason to come to Diekirch. If you’re interested in military history, this museum is another if the interesting places to visit in Luxembourg.

The National Museum of Military History boasts many American exhibits such as American military artifacts like cannons, tanks, armored trucks, rifles, etc.
