One of the smallest countries in Europe, Luxembourg was the first place I travelled to solo. There's some grand architecture and an olde worlde feel about the city.
I was lucky enough to meet a group of locals on my first evening who then showed me around the city the next day. If it hadn't been for the positive experience in Luxembourg, I may have given up solo travelling, but thankfully it went very smoothly and lead me to solo travel many more countries.
What to see in Luxembourg
Although only small, this old town is quite a change from the city centre. While I was exploring the area in the late morning, I didn't see another soul anywhere, it was quite an eerie feeling. This is a lovely area to escape the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city, and there is some truly beautiful scenery as you'll walk over the cobbles and through the alleyways.
Parcs de la Pétrusse
This was my favourite part of the city. Like Grund, this was another place to escape the city centre. It's very easy to get lost as you follow the stairways and paths down to the lower areas of the park. I think as it was autumn during my visit, this area was even more beautiful. There was a real calmness and peacefulness about this place.
National Museum of History and Art, MNHA
A museum displaying many pieces of art and artifacts from Luxembourg history. It's quite a large museum and will take you some time to get around. You'll go from the stone age onto present present day as you work your way from the basement to the upper floors of the museum.
Grand Ducal Palace
The official residence of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg. It can be found in the centre of the city amongst the shops and cafes.
It's quite a gothic looking building, and you're bound to come across it whilst exploring the city centre.
There are guided tours during the summer months, however I didn't get the chance to see inside myself.
Unfortunately this was closed when I visited. These are tunnels carved throughout the rocks overlooking much of Luxembourg. There are meant to be some great views of the city when looking through the gaps in the walls.
