The last month of the summer vacation is now upon us, but we at La Isla still have a lot of vacation ideas up our sleeves.
One of them is Luxembourg, a city with endless possibilities, giving its travelers an amazing experience like no other. The city is our third stop for the summer, and the timing is just right for adventure seekers to bask in its glory with gusto.
Roam through Neumünster Abbey, the city’s cultural centre located in the Grund District, and learn about the abbey’s storied history through the different exhibits and seminars they offer; if you’re lucky you might even catch a concert held in the area. Take time to also see the Grand Ducal Palace, the official residence of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg, and admire its magnificent structural design and unique architecture.

A visit to Luxembourg will not be complete without witnessing the pristine waters of the Alzette, a 73 kilometer-long river passing through France and Luxembourg. The old stone bridges of the city such as the famous Adolphe Bridge, Grand Duchess Charlotte Bridge, and the Passerelle are also important sights to see while traversing Luxembourg’s waterways.
Take snapshots of the different edifices that have long dominated the city. One great site is the Hôtel de la Caisse d’Epargne, completed in 1913 by architect Jean-Pierre Koenig. The building was designed in the French Neo-Renaissance style with the tower as its most prominent feature. Another is the Notre Dame Cathedral, the only cathedral found in the city. The cathedral was originally constructed as a Jesuit Church in 1613, but was since converted into a Roman Catholic Cathedral.
The search for that once-in-a-lifetime adventure in a foreign land goes on as there is always something more to see in Luxembourg than meets the eye. Navigate through the city and experience its many attractions, which seem simple but are eccentric in their own little way, and we promise you’ll have the time of your life in Luxembourg.
