Points of Interest Luxembourg City

Luxembourg-City is a city that deserves to be known and visited throughout all the seasons. One tourist site could be concealing another. The most prominent attractions include the "casemates" or bunkers, which are among the longest subterranean tunnels in the world. The casemates that once formed an extraordinary network of 23 km were carved into the rocks of the city and are a top attraction in Luxembourg-City. Not only did they provide shelter for thousands of defenders with their equipment and horses, but they were also home to workshops of artillery and armaments, kitchens, bakeries, slaughterhouses, etc.

Luxembourg-City has a plethora of historic and tourist sites simply waiting to be discovered. Picturesque squares, quaint back alleys that make you feel alive, majestic boulevards and beautifully sculptured parks that coax you in for a stroll. The city of Luxembourg is proud of its eventful history that began over a thousand years ago. As the headquarters of important European institutions, Luxembourg is famous all over the world. Welcome to Luxembourg-City!
