  • Vom 13.04.2017-15.04.2017 waren wir in Luxemburg. Die Stadt (leider sehr stark im Umbau) ist auf mehreren Ebenen zu erkunden, denn Luxemburg ist interessanterweise in einem sehr bergigen Gebiet. Neben einem modernen Stadtteil, dem Europa-/Bankenviertel, gibt es viele Alte Burgteile und Forts.

    Das Hotel Golden Tulip - Central Molitor war hatte ein sehr gutes Preis- Leistungsverhältnis. Die Preise für Essen und Getränke sind in Luxemburg sehr hoch. Erwähnenswert ist das Fastfoodrestaurant Quick, eine gelungene Abwechslung zu McDonalds. Für landestypisches Essen (Suppen und Brot) empfiehlt sich a la soup. Supermärkte sind hier eher rar, man sollte daher z.B. den Supermarkt Kirchberg besuchen.Read more

  • South of the city of Luxembourg, our stopover was 1.5km out of the town of Dudelange. We passed through a FairTrade town to get here. It reminded us of Stourbridge back home.

    We waited until after the hottest part of the day and set off to explore. We passed a brightly painted skate park whose users were preparing for an upcoming competition. (We'd occasionally seen a skateboarder pop up to the stopover to stock up on free water before heading back to the ramps).
    We indulged in some chocolate at a Fair Trade shop and lamented about the UK's Leave vote with the shopkeeper who spoke 'a little English'. She worried Britain was 'all about the economy' (i.e. rich people getting richer) and the people were forgotten about. She feared England would be isolated if they left, telling us the people of Luxembourg knew the value of migrants, with 60,000 French commuting daily, not to mention the Belgians and Germans who lived here.

    A large proportion of the town centre was behind fencing as it was being turned into a shared area for pedestrians, cars and cyclists. The main square outside the town hall however was beautiful and laid out with red deckchairs for people to watch the Tour de France on a huge screen on the town hall. There were several cafes around the square and as our stopover was free we treated ourselves to ice cream and an espresso!

    Loving the bright colours on the houses we've seen since crossing the border, makes things look really cheerful.

  • Our nephew recommended Lake Echternacht in Luxembourg as a favourite of his parent's. We'd planned to stay in the town's stopover, eat out and explore the lake and surrounding area known as Little Switzerland for it's natural beauty. However we were disappointed to find a sign saying vans were no longer allowed overnight. Needing to find somewhere to stay we decided to head straight to the lake then move on so we could find somewhere before tea. Lake Echternacht itself was nestled amongst small tree covered hills and rolling farmland. It had a great family feel to it as we cycled round. Groups gathered around the bbq stands scattered around, several people swam and there were plenty of people walking, cycling, sitting and rollerskating as well as a few on hired peddle boats.Read more

  • Well after a cancelled rail journey( 9:18) to leave at 13:33 ( real 13:40) and what should have been 45 min , we arrived at Luxembourg at 15:00 . Rail info not good- unknown whether we can get to Aachen on our booked tickets , .So the hotel has a nice layout. We then walked to the casements Bloch& it was open until 8 pm - great !S was very keen to visit these& only 8€ for 2 of us . It was interesting. Raining now, quite heavily. Took dome nice photos. We hadn't had any lunch except some mccas chips & coffee hours before, so on our way through the Grund, a UNESCO area there was a pub-- Scott's pub so in we went.... 1 pizza later & 6 beers later( it was happy hour & the guy got our order wrong so instead of 1 Guiness& 1 German we got double) & that was after our first beers!!! We managed!! Walked back to hotel , there were road stoppages because of a cycling event( in the pouring rain) got our rail tickets & visited station for an update. No luck so far, have to go there tomorrow before 7 am. We are looking forward to visiting Deborah and family!,,,,,Read more
