Culture and casemates

02.11.2017

The small Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and its eponymous capital have surprisingly lots to offer. While nature lovers can find plenty of greenery and the best hiking opportunities in the regions of Guttland and Mullerthal, the Ardennes and Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland, the capital beckons with its medieval charm and rich cultural offering. Whether a weekend trip or a hiking holiday, with the new connection from Berlin Schönefeld, both are only a flight away. As of now, easyJet will fly three times a week – every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday – from Berlin Schönefeld to Luxembourg (LUX). The country’s only international airport, colloquially known as Findel, is only six kilometres from the centre of the capital and can be easily reached by bus.

Casemates

If you do take a trip to Luxembourg, you should pay a visit to the casemates, a structural particularity of the city. In the 15th century, these underground tunnels and rooms were carved into the rocks upon which the city sits over a green stretch of land. They served to protect the city, which was already a fortress, and can today be visited as part of guided tours.

Culturally, the capital of Luxembourg has everything to offer. Various museums such as the Lëtzebuerg City Museum and the Musée d'Art Moderne (MUDAM for short) display both historical as well as contemporary and avant-garde works. On top of this, there is both the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra and small clubs in which well-known bands perform, making the musical scene of little Luxembourg’s beautiful capital impressively diverse.
